Zinc is one of the most abundant minerals in the human body, and with good reason as it plays a critical role in over 300 enzymatic reactions, including the development and function of immune cells[i]. In fact, several studies have shown that zinc supplementation may reduce the length of the common cold by up to 33%[ii], and it can also significantly reduce the risk of infections and promote immune response in older adults[iii].
Additional benefits of zinc include skin health, metabolism function, DNA synthesis and protein production[iv],[v] .
HTN combines zinc with vitamin C in it’s non-GMO, natural flavored lozenge to further improve immune health and boost skin benefits.
