Next to iron, zinc is the most abundant trace mineral in the body. Normal growth and tissue repair depend upon adequate zinc levels.

Stored primarily in muscle, zinc is also found in high concentrations in red and white blood cells, the retina of the eye, bones, skin, kidneys, liver, and pancreas. Some of the symptoms of zinc deficiency include loss of appetite, poor growth, weight loss, impaired taste or smell, poor wound healing, skin abnormalities (such as acne, atopic dermatitis and psoriasis), hair loss, night blindness, hypogonadism and delayed sexual maturation, white spots on the fingernails and feelings of depression.Zinc supplementation has been shown to reduce the duration and severity of diarrhea in populations of children with a high incidence of zinc deficiency, and also to reduce the frequency of recurrences in the subsequent 2-3 months.Indications:Smart zinc is indicated in the correction of dietary deficiencies for patients who have a lack of zinc in the diet.Identification:Tablet - a flat round white coloured tablet with break line on one side and plain on the other side.Syrup - a yellowish brown colour syrup with pineapple flavour.Presentation:Tablets - 10 tablets packed in a blister strip. 1 or 10 such strips packed in a box.Syrup - 150 ml syrup in a amber colour glass bottle.
