Zinc (Zn) prescribing information

 



Zinc notes:

Zinc is an essential mineral that is naturally present and also available as a dietary supplement. It is also found in many cold lozenges and some over-the-counter drugs sold as cold remedies. Zinc is involved in numerous aspects of cellular metabolism. Zinc also supports normal growth and development during pregnancy, childhood and adolescence and is required for proper sense of taste and smell. Zinc benefits are related to immune system, skin, hear and nails, hormones, metabolism and digestion, prostate and reproductive organs as well as hear, smell and sight organs. A daily intake of zinc is required to maintain a steady state because the body has no specialized zinc storage system. Intake of zinc should be kept under 100 mg per day as larger amounts may result in nausea, diarrhea, dizziness, drowsiness and hallucinations. Zinc sources are found in muscle meat, poultry, fish, food and seafood, while grains, nuts, eggs, seeds and brewer's yeast also supply good quality zinc, other sources of zinc are natural medicines for colds, typically in the form of lozenges and nasal sprays and gels. It has been suggested by researchers that intake of zinc as well as Vitamin C and Vitamin E reduces the risk of AMD (age-related macular degeneration) and vision loss. Severe zinc deficiency depresses immune function and even mild to moderate degrees of zinc deficiency can impair macrophage and neutrophil functions, natural killer cell activity and complement activity. It is best to take zinc supplement with iron, copper, manganese and calcium as they may interfere with zinc absorption. Make sure that the zinc and iron is nearly in the same amounts. Zinc Chelate Oral is used to treat deficiency of zinc. Zinc in form of citrate is widely used for fighting acne, pneumonia, diarrhea and other infections. Zinc recommended doses are: For children 1 to 3 years. Meat is a better source of zinc as certain whole grains contain phytic acid which binds to zinc, making it un-absorbable and zinc is also lost through excessive sweating. It is not recommended to take Zinc together with Amiloride unless recommended by doctor.
