Metabolics products are "starting materials" designed for compounding to be extemporaneously dispensed in a clinical setting.
Metabolics Super Zinc is made from Zinc Chloride and Zinc Sulphate which is highly soluble and contains readily dissociated Zinc ions. This makes it highly bioavailable and already accessible to be transported immediately into the cells upon ingestion.
This form of Zinc is ideal for people with sensitive stomachs, children and people who have difficulty swallowing capsules. This form of zinc is remarkably effective in increasing zinc status without creating excess nausea. However recommended to be taken after food.
This is a much high dose of zinc for people who are quite deficient.
