Immune Boosting Zinc
Due to poor diet, soil depletion, food processing, aging, and stress, zinc deficiency is widespread. Statistics indicate average intake ranges from 47% to 57% of Recommended Daily Allowance (RDA) is not enough to prevent outright deficiency.
Aceva Zinc Lozenges provide a special blend of fully soluble, energized zinc and synergistic nutrients for maximum immune support for people of all ages.*
Because each person absorbs zinc differently, Aceva Zinc Lozenges are a bio-complete, good-tasting formula combining:
Three activated forms of zinc (citrate, aspartate, and glycinate) for direct transporter-activated absorption and utilization.
Vitamin C, a proven antioxidant, to strengthen the immune system.*
Echinacea purpurea, which boosts immune function and stimulates white blood cell production. Echinacea also has antibiotic, antiviral, and anti-inflammatory properties, which provide powerful synergy.*
Slippery Elm to soothe inflamed and irritated mucous membranes.*
OPC 85+(flavanol, active soluble proanthocyanidins), an anti-inflammatory, antiviral agent, an antioxidant and synergistic cofactor for the action of ascorbate (vitamin C).*
Effective Cold and Flu Fighter Plus Much More
More than a dozen studies show that zinc supplementation reduces the incidence of cold symptoms and the duration of illness. Zinc can also inhibit the growth of cold-causing viruses.
Unlike other zinc lozenges, Aceva has a complete, immune-building formula. Other zinc lozenges not only lack synergistic nutrients for immune enhancement, but also commonly use poorly absorbed, insoluble, or poorly available forms of zinc. Aceva Zinc Lozenges are the perfect chewable daily zinc supplement and immune system enhancer for children.
Aceva Zinc Lozenges can be especially useful for children with poor growth and appetite.*
Zinc is involved in more body functions than any other mineral. Experts estimate that over 10,000 enzyme reactions require zinc and many are involved with immune defense and repair. Zinc is essential for growth, development, sexual function, immune function, and chemical detoxification.* Without adequate zinc, healing cannot take place.
Powerful Benefits For the Common Cold
In a randomized, double blind, placebo-controlled clinical trial1, researchers studied the effects of zinc lozenges on the common cold. Patients received either zinc lozenges or a placebo every two hours until their symptoms were gone.
Researchers evaluated zinc's effects on symptoms including cough, headache, scratchy throat, sore throat, sneezing, and fever. Zinc lozenges decreased the duration of cold symptoms by nearly half compared to the placebo group.*
In another study, researchers reviewed seven previous randomized, controlled trials on the effectiveness of zinc gluconate lozenges for treating the common cold. The study concluded that the evidence supports the use of zinc lozenges for reducing the symptoms and duration of the common cold.*2
When zinc is in short supply, the skin suffers, resulting in a host of teenage skin problems, including acne. Studies show that zinc is superior to tetracycline for treating acne.
