High, acute intake of Influ-Zinc may be useful for brief periods of 7-10 days, depending on the circumstances.
Why Pharma Nord Bio-InfluZinc + C supplement:
Zinc is an essential mineral and a trace element that is primarily found in cells and, to a lesser extent, in cellular fluid throughout the body. For instance, our white and red blood cells contain a substantial amount of zinc. Together with copper, zinc is an important constituent of the antioxidant enzyme superoxide dismutase (SOD).
Zinc has many different functions in the human body and supports about 200 different enzymes, including enzymes that are necessary for metabolizing nutrients and enzymes that are important for translation and expression of genetic coding. These are some of the most important functions of zinc:
Zinc is non-toxic in limited quantities. A high intake of zinc for extended periods (10-30 times RDA) may cause copper deficiency. Simultaneous intake of zinc and iron may have a negative influence on the body's zinc absorption. A high calcium intake may also reduce the body's uptake of zinc.
Vitamin C is a water-soluble vitamin, which was given the name ascorbic acid, when it was discovered. The term refers to the fact that it is an acid that prevents scurvy. Vitamin C has also other important functions such as:
Acerola is a large (2-3 cm) cherry-like, pit-containing fruit that is cultivated in South America and the Caribbean. There are several different Acerola varieties. The wild fruit is rather sour, but the Influ-Zinc contains a refined version. Acerola's vitamin C content is extremely high and provides 1,500-3,000 mg of vitamin per. 100 g. In comparison, an orange provides around 40-50 mg of vitamin C per 100 gram.
Pharma Nord recommends 3-6 pastilles per day at the onset of a cold, continue for between 7 to 10 days or when symptoms subside or as directed by a physician.
