This is my second purchase. I love source natural products and find it very useful to have zinc lozenges on hand at home. The lozenge it is quite large. I try and have the melt in my mouth as long as possible and sometimes chew the remainder. I take these when I’m feeling a little under the weather or have a irritated scratchy throat.
I'd given up hope of ever discovering a zinc lozenge that didn't taste like chalk. This one, however, does not!! The flavour is excellent. It chews well, and the peach-raspberry flavour is light and refreshing. PLEASE READ THE INSTRUCTIONS ON THE BOTTLE CAREFULLY. You shouldn't eat one of them if you're hungry. On the bottle, I believe it says so. I tried that once by accident and was sick for the rest of the day. After that, take a bite and swallow your lozenge. Also, wait 30 minutes after taking zinc before eating or drinking citrous. I'm not sure whether it says so on the bottle, but it's very usual with zinc lozenges.
These lozenges have saved my skin! If you suffer from those terrible underground pimples I’ve referred to as “tumors” around your chin then you need to take this supplement. I took one pill after dinner and after a few weeks my skin cleared up. Do not take on an empty stomach, it will make you feel sick.
I have to admit I did not expect it to taste this good. It does have 2 grams of sugar (fructose) It is a large thin wafer (like a sweetart) that is not hard; it crumbles easily on a little pressure with the teeth. It says not to use for more than 3 days and not to take on empty stomach or with citrus juice (but does not say why so I am left with so many questions.) There are 120 in the bottle and its a good price; it will last a long time.
Zinc is needed for DNA synthesis, immune function, metabolism and growth. It may reduce inflammation and your risk of some age-related diseases. Most people meet the RDI of 11 mg for men and 8 mg for women through diet, but older adults and people with diseases that inhibit zinc absorption may need to supplement.
Source Naturals Wellness Zinc Lozenges are good value. When taken with Quercetin, a zinc ionophore which bridges cell walls to allow zinc entry, it is an effective way to block the spike proteins of SARS-Cov-2/Covid-19 from entering the cells. Besides Covid-19, Zinc Lozenges protect against all manner of viruses.
