Indications: A nutritional complementary mineral supplement containing zinc and selenium. Zinc is an essential element of nutrition. It is a constituent of many enzyme reactions and is present in all tissues. Zinc assists with the maintenance of rapidly-dividing tissues such as the skin, the immune system and the intestinal mucosa. (Ref. 1). Selenium is an essential trace element and is an integral part of the enzyme system glutathione peroxidase; this enzyme protects intracellular structures against oxidative damage. (Ref. 2). Selenium may help protect against cancers of the lung, colon, rectum and prostate. (Ref. 4). Contra-indications: Hypersensitivity to any of the ingredients. Interactions: The absorption of zinc may be reduced by calcium (milk), iron supplements, penicillamine, phosphorus-containing preparations of tetracyclines. Zinc supplements may in overdose reduce the absorption of copper, fluoroquinolones, iron, penicillamine and tetracycline. (Ref. 1). Pregnancy and lactation: The safety of this preparation in pregnancy and lactation has not been established. Known symptoms of overdosage and particulars of its treatments: Most frequent adverse effects of zinc salts administered by mouth are gastrointestinal and include abdominal pain, dyspepsia, nausea, vomiting, diarrhoea, gastric irritation and gastritis. (Ref. 1) These symptoms are greatly reduced through the use of Zinplex® (zinc picolinate). Overdosage of selenium has been associated with hair loss, nail changes, diarrhoea, dermatitis, garlic odour of breath, fatigue and peripheral neuropathy. (Ref. 2).
