Zinc plus Copper are two essential minerals that regulate the function of every cell in our body. For example, zinc is involved in more than 100 reactions in the cell. From energy production to immune system health to glucose metabolism, zinc and copper are are important players. In addition, Zinc and copper act as a strong anti-oxidant. In this way, these important minerals protect our cells from the harmful effects of free oxygen radicals.
For years, Dr. Z’s Zinc plus Copper was available only to Dr. Zaidi’s patients. He saw these patients on a regular basis and carefully monitored them for any side-effects. During a period of fifteen years, thousand of patients received Dr. Z’s Zinc plus Copper . It was found to be effective in the vast majority of patients. At the same time, no side-effects were noted.*
Meanwhile, Dr. Zaidi observed some amazing health benefits in his patients.*

Why ZINC plus COPPER?
Zinc should be taken with copper if you plan to take it for the long term.* Why? Because, if you take zinc in a dose of more than 60 mg per day on a chronic basis, you can become low in copper. Then, deficiency of copper may manifest as anemia and neurologic symptoms . In addition, zinc and copper are two minerals that work together inside the cells.
For this reason, we have created this unique formula of Zinc and Copper in the optimal amounts.* In particular, we use Chelated ZINC and COPPER, which have better absorption.* Because Zinc is a mineral that is difficult to absorb. Especially phytates in our food significantly interfere with zinc absorption. What are phytates? These are natural chemicals present in whole grains (rice, wheat, corn) , seeds, nuts, and legumes such as beans and lentils. That’s why zinc and copper should be taken on a daily basis to prevent their deficiency.*

Zinc Deficiency and COVID-19
Zinc plays an important role in keeping our immune system healthy. Therefore, scientists wondered if zinc deficiency was putting people at risk of severe disease from Coronavirus. For example, researchers from India checked out Zinc level in COVID-19 patients at the time of hospitalization. They found that more than 50% of COVID-19 patients were deficient in zinc as compared to healthy people. In addition, zinc deficiency was also associated with a prolonged hospital stay and increased mortality. (1)
Similarly, in a study from Brazil, 79.6% of critically ill patients with COVID-19 were low in zinc.(2) In addition, researchers from Spain found that COVID-19 patients with low zinc had a higher mortality rate. (3)
In short, there is enough scientific data to support the concept that zinc deficiency may be a risk factor for increased complications and mortality from COVID-19.*
Zinc Supplementation for Preventing and Treating COVID-19*
Zinc supplementation is an integral part of the “Prevention & Treatment Protocols for COVID-19” by the Front Line COVID-19 Critical Care Alliance in the US. (4)
Zinc and Copper play an important role in the normal functioning of the cells. Unfortunately most people are low in zinc and copper. Therefore, consider adding a Zinc Copper supplement if you think you may be low in Zinc.
