    Office of Dietary Supplements - Zinc
    Zinc is another part of the triad of immune protection for a health body in a compromised world of CCP immunity.

    HK> I have experienced complaints from Vets as to why the daily dose of a vitamin supplement provided by the VA does not cover the needs of CCP Virus protection. It is a simple fact that you would end up with a compromised pill in size and as well as a problem with the interaction of the components. Just time to take what is proven for your health.

    or information on zinc and COVID-19, see Dietary Supplements in the Time of COVID-19.
    What is zinc and what does it do?

    Zinc is a nutrient that people need to stay healthy. Zinc is found in cells throughout the body. It helps the immune system fight off invading bacteria and viruses. The body also needs zinc to make proteins and DNA, the genetic material in all cells. During pregnancy, infancy, and childhood, the body needs zinc to grow and develop properly. Zinc also helps wounds heal and is important for proper senses of taste and smell.

    I get 11 mg in my multi-vitamin tablet each morning...and 50 mg in a Zinc supplement each night. Zinc absorption is difficult for your body (remember it's a mineral) so always try to get your zinc in chelated form (most of the better supplements are), or just take Ivermectin with you zinc and kill two birds with one stone.(y)

    Stomach irritation and vomiting have occurred at doses of 2000 mg per day. However the chelated form of zinc taken in reasonable amounts in non-toxic.

    I take 25mg of zinc picolinate every day because it is easier for your body to absorb it. The human body has a lot of trouble getting into your cells so the best way to do that is to supplement 500mg of Quercetin every day with it.

    It is pretty hard to find stuff made in America and not flooded with Chinese poisons but Natural-Sourced Multivitamins, Minerals & Skincare | Country Life Vitamins is one of them. I'm not affiliated with them.

    At the start of Covid someone recommended that I take a specific Zinc supplement because it had special properties to attach and absorb without the normal zinc nausea. I cannot recall all the science why but I take them a few times a week, not daily unless I am feeling ill.

    Expensive but it helps manage a healthy cytokines which is something that that keeps getting mentioned in battling Covid.

    Zinc is most important one for our body health, at the same time many of them are nowadays consuming zinc tablets for better body health condition. But lots of natural food contains rich amount of zinc. So better to take fresh natural food items will surely providing zinc to the body.
