1 tablet contains 50mg (333%DV) of zinc gluconate, cellulose, vegetable-source magnesium stearate, silica, and vegetable coating Advantages: (1)Zinc gluconate is always lower in cadmium than all other forms of zinc supplements. (2)No copper has been added. Like iron, manganese, and aluminum, copper is a pro-oxidant that, in excess, will damage every cell in our bodies and increase our risk of death from heart disease, cancer, and a dozen other killer diseases. (3)The price is affordable. (4)Absorption is adequate. Zinc gluconate is not as well-absorbed as zinc monomethionine, chelated zinc, or zinc picolinate but it is absorbed as well or better than all of the remaining zinc choices.

Great product, thanks NOW PLEASE BE CAREFUL when taking Zinc for the first time. ONE 50mg CAPSULE can cause severe reaction, and can cause sever gastrointestinal distress, vomiting, and severe nausea. Zinc must be gradually increased even from 10-15mg (1/4 capsule in water) up to a full capsule over a few days or even a week time. After that, it’s great mineral anti-oxidant protection and supplement. Take care.
