Zinc Citrate Powder
Health Benefits Provided by Zinc Citrate
This supplement is traditionally used as a treatment for deficiency. Those that have below-average levels of Zinc will experience negative symptoms such as poor night vision, slower healing after sustaining wounds, a reduction in the senses of both smell and taste and a lack of development in the reproductive organs (if the person is younger or still developing).
Reduction of Zinc levels in children can stunt growth, cause greater receptiveness to infection and disease. There are around 800,000 deaths per year reported where Zinc deficiency was either a direct or indirect cause. In fact, Zinc deficiency is credited with being the fifth-highest risk factor in disease development. A quarter of the world's population may be at risk of developing a Zinc deficiency.
Zinc is also an important component in many different enzymatic reactions that contribute to the regularity of the body's development. Specifically, collagen and Vitamin A are both dependent upon Zinc for their metabolism. Zinc also affects the ability to taste and smell, the appetite, and the levels of Vitamin E found in the blood. Zinc is commonly used to protect the skin and as an antiseptic.

ZINC CITRATE SIDE EFFECTS
As long as suggested serving sizes are adhered to, this product is considered safe. However, taking too much Zinc can have an adverse effect on the body's ability to absorb copper and iron. It is recommended that you supplement iron and copper as well, with an emphasis on the copper, if you are taking more than 50mg of pure Zinc per day.
Taking too much Zinc may also harm the immune system and even affect the body's absorption of prescription drugs. This is why suggested serving sizes should always be followed.
This supplement is only partially soluble in water and will have a cloudy texture when mixed. However, it is perfectly safe to do so and may be mixed with water or juice and then consumed.
