The average diet frequently provides less than the RDA for zinc. Zinc deficiency is especially likely to occur in older adults and individuals with malabsorption problems.
Zinc Chelate is a highly absorbable form of the mineral zinc.
Note: Zinc may bind with the antibiotic tetracycline and other antibiotics called quinolones, decreasing the absorption and effectiveness of these drugs. Because of the possible drug interactions, please consult your physician for optimal times to dose as it may be necessary to take zinc approximately 2 hours before or after taking your medication.
