Zinc Sulfate (Pot of 60 capsules)

Share this product


Zinc sulphate is highly soluble zinc salt, with easy disassociation in the gut and good bioavailability.

Zinc generally is found throughout the body and is involved in a considerable number of processes and functions:

  • the metabolism of proteins, carbohydrates, lipids and vitamin A
  • keeping the immune system working
  • protein manufacture and the maintenance of healthy skin, hair and nails
  • muscle growth and reproductive health
  • DNA synthesis and cell division
  • as an antioxidant, protecting cells from oxidative damage
  • maintaining healthy bones
  • supporting cognitive performance
  • normal vision

Zinc sulphate in particular is used in the treatment of Wilson's disease (a condition of excess copper in the body). There are also reports of it being used to enhance wound healing.

The body is able to regulate its zinc levels so that within certain limits any excess is discarded. A supplement is only required in cases of deficiency, or in cases of clinical need for a specific targeted application of zinc.

The daily requirement of zinc is readily available in a balanced diet, including vegetarian diets if they include wholegrains and pulses (such as beans and lentils).

One capsule provides 9.9mg active zinc, which is approximately the RDA.

Excessive zinc consumption can have toxic effects, or could lead to anaemia. Do not take more than 25mg total zinc intake per day unless under specific medical advice. In case of doses above 50mg per day, about 5mg per day of additional copper should also be taken. Regular doses of about 50mg or more per day of zinc sulfate have been found to also cause nausea.

Zinc supplements are thought to be better absorbed if taken between meals.
