Due to the fact that not everyone absorbs zinc in the same way and in equal amounts and that zinc is not stored by your body, supplements can be helpful. The Berocca range can help support the levels of zinc in your body.
There are some groups of people who are more at risk of not getting enough zinc than others. They include:
- vegetarians and vegans,
- people on medically recommended restrictive diets,
- pregnant and breastfeeding women,
- people with certain medical conditions that can cause malabsorption. Please always make sure to carefully read the label and consult your healthcare professional before taking other medicines.
Zinc is needed in various processes in your body and plays an important role as an antioxidant, in DNA synthesis and in growth and development. Hence, it is good to remember to eat plenty of foods rich in zinc and, if needed, to take a vitamin and mineral dietary supplement to supplement a healthy and balanced diet.
