ZINCCOMB® helps increase the levels of zinc and vitamin C in the body’s tissue. This is essential for when the body is exposed to viral or bacterial infections, which require an increased immune response. Zinc and vitamin C are also important nutritional factors in wound healing and cellular repair, from trauma and injury.
ZINCCOMB contains vitamin C, zinc and citrus bioflavonoids, which when combined, can aid in the prevention, duration and re occurrence of viral infections, as well as promote healing at a cellular level.
The body uses vitamin C to strengthen the immune system, fight viral infections, produce tissue, promote wound healing, as well as fight free radicals. Many clinical studies have proven that vitamin C can reduce the duration of the common cold by 37%.
Vitamin C is probably the most recognized nutritional substance in the world. It has a beneficial role in so many biological functions that is virtually impossible to enumerate them. It has been clinically linked to immune response, viral infections, collagen formation, skin integrity, cellular and antioxidant protection and numerous degenerative conditions involving everything from joints to eyes.
Bioflavonoids. While many companies have declared that they were the first to introduce these potent nutriceuticals a quick glance at a Vitaminerals’ catalog from the 1940s will show that Vitaminerals pioneered their inclusion in formulas decades before most of these companies even existed. We were the first to recognize not only their importance but their synergistic relationship with Vitamin C especially as it applied to circulatory health. When using high amounts of Vitamin C maximum uptake is obtained by decelerating the release over a period of time to allow receptors to absorb the Vitamin C. These receptors are located in a specific area of the digestive tract at the beginning of the small intestine.Ingested nutrients pass this point about four hours after ingestion. All Vitamin C must be available in this time frame. Thus time release mechanisms of 8 or 12 hours simply waste half or two thirds of the Vitamin C. All of Vitaminerals decelerated release products ALWAYS attain full release within the body’s proscribed limits.
Zinc is used by the body on a number of levels, from the production of hair follicles to DNA synthesis. Zinc is also responsible for a variety of biological processes, including boosting the immune system via white blood cells, which use zinc for creating antibodies to combat viral infections.
Our citrus bioflavonoids have been derived from oranges and lemons. These flavonoids can help with the absorption of vitamin C and they are packed with antioxidants, anti-inflammatory properties and can inhibit retroviruses.
