In recent years, zinc has been competing with magnesium to take home the most popular mineral award! It has been receiving a lot more attention for its ability to support immunity, and it also helps to support wound healing when our little ones get hurt, combat skin conditions through adolescence and beyond, and keep hair and nails strong and beautiful!
Surprisingly, it's estimated that 10-35% of Canadians are not getting enough zinc. Signs of deficiency include frequent infections, slower wound healing, skin conditions, hair loss, and lack of appetite.
Supplementation is important in such cases, but care must be taken to balance zinc intake with copper, as taking zinc without copper may cause a copper deficiency. Copper is a vital trace mineral that helps to enable iron absorption and red blood cell formation, repair connective tissue, and maintain blood vessels and nerves.
Family First Zinc Plus Copper is a winning combination because it combines the two! It features zinc citrate in a balanced ratio with copper. Zinc citrate is a more bioavailable form of zinc compared to zinc gluconate and zinc oxide, which are common in other supplements.
