Highly Absorbable Liquid Zinc for Brain, Adrenal & Whole Body Support
An essential mineral for life, zinc holds the center position in healthy RNA and DNA. If zinc is deficient, optimal health is difficult to achieve. Everyone is vulnerable, especially children through adolescence. Zinc is the second most abundant trace mineral in the human body and is found in every bodily tissue and tissue fluid. Biochemical functions in which zinc plays an integral role include enzyme function, protein synthesis, nucleic acid metabolism, the immune system, brain development/function and adrenal function
Zinc's Many Important Roles
Zinc plays a key role in maintaining a healthy attitude and mood. In animal studies, zinc deficiency produced significant behavorial changes such as aggression. In human studies, zinc deficiency created anxiety and mood disturbances. Zinc is also plays an important role at adrenal hormone receptor sites. Lowered zinc levels may inhibit adequate adrenal function and the body's ability to respond to stress.
Zinc Deficiency Symptoms:
- Slow wound healing
- Taste & smell disorders
- Impaired growth & sexual development
- Impaired Adrenal Function
- Skin disorders
- Irritable Bowel Syndrome
- Iron nonresponsive anemia
- Pica (eating dirt)
- Eating disorders (such as anorexia, bulimia)
For those wanting to replete their zinc status very quickly, the infallible absorption of Zinc Assay offers the most rapid response. Zinc and other nutrients are most commonly transported into the blood via the villi of the small intestine; however, with the flattening of the villi, it becomes necessary to give zinc-deficient individuals a form of zinc that can be better absorbed. Zinc Assay, a form of liquid zinc sulfate septahydrate, helps overcome this problem, since it can be efficiently absorbed through the lining of the stomach. Other forms of zinc may be very difficult to absorb in compromised individuals.
The Zinc Assay Taste Test
To determine if you have sufficient zinc levels, you may take the Zinc Assay Taste Test. This is a simple taste test reported in the medical journal, The Lancet. If you have sufficient zinc levels, Zinc Assay will taste bitter. If you are deficient in zinc, Zinc Assay will taste like water.
1) Optimal zinc levels—An immediate, unpleasant, obviously adverse taste, at which the patient normally grimaces.
2) Adequate Zinc Levels—A definite but not strongly unpleasant taste is noted immediately and tends to intensify with time.
3) Quite Zinc Deficient—No taste noted initially, but develops in 10-15 seconds.
4) Very Zinc Deficient—Tasteless or "tastes like water".
100% Purified Water
PRL uses 100% purified water (not filtered water) as the base in our Zinc Assay. The use of purified water is critical since using tap water or only partially purified (filtered) water may contain impurities which alter the taste. During the Zinc Taste Test, a person deficient in zinc should experience a bland taste; however, if the liquid zinc contains impurities, the taste may be altered and give a false negative.

Recommended Use: To test: Hold 1 teaspoon in the mouth for 15 seconds. If an immediate taste perception occurs, the individual may have an adequate zinc status. A lack of taste or delay in taste perception may indicate a zinc deficiency. Liquid Zinc Assay is not harmful and may be swallowed after testing.
To take as a supplement, take 1 teaspoon in water or juice daily or as directed by a healthcare professional. Our liquid zinc is made using 100% purified water, not filtered or tap water which may contain impurities.
