For Immune System Support

Support for

  • Healthy skin, hair and nails

  • Healing wounds

  • Healthy sperm production

Also available in 120 tabs 



Zinc is an essential mineral which acts as a co-factor to more than 25 enzymes in the body. Zinc plays an important role in:
  • a healthy immune system
  • maintaining the general health of the skin with research suggesting it may assist in the healing of wounds
  • helping support the production of healthy sperm. In many cases it has proven effective for impotency and some prostate conditions

How do you know if you are Zinc deficient?

  • Ridges and/or white spotted fingernails
  • Slow wound healing
  • Hair loss 


Are there any side effects associated with taking Zinc?
Zinc is relatively non toxic, however high doses can produce side effects. If side effects result, reduce the dosage. Too much zinc can give a need for other minerals, such as copper. It is advisable people stick to 15mg per day (1 capsule of abeeco Optimum Zinc). If needing to take more, they should also take a multi-mineral complex to help "balance" these levels up.
Can I take Zinc with other supplements?
Yes you can. Bee Pollen and Evening Primrose Oil are good complementary supplements. Bee Pollen contains Vitamin B6 which helps to increase the level of zinc cells. It also contains trace amounts of copper which is important if you're taking zinc in large doses (see below).
What is the recommended daily dosage of Zinc?
The recommended daily amount (RDA) of zinc for both men and women is 15mg per day. Pregnant women need 30mg per day. Men with prostate problems need 30-50mg per day.

At doses of more than 30mg a day, it is advisable to also take copper. Bee Pollen contains trace amounts of copper, so this could help to balance these levels up.



Adults take 1 tablet daily 10 minutes before food, or as professionally prescribed.
