Zinc is an essential mineral which, when deficient, can lead to prolonged wound healing, inflammatory and infectious processes in lung, intestine and soft tissue. Zinc is frequently deficient in the elderly and in those hospitalized for infections.

Raising your zinc levels prior to exposure to a virus will likely shorten the time to recovery. Zinc is widely available as liquid, tablet and capsule in most health related stores. Zinc chelated with organic compounds enhances its absorbtion. Take 50 mg/day at meal time. Zinc is also available in a liquid form for children.
