PERQUE ZINC -  BOTTOM LINE FOR IMMUNE SUPPORT. Due to poor diet, soil depletion, food processing, aging, andstress, zinc de ciency is widespread. Statistics indicate average intake ranges from 47% to 57% of Recommended Daily Allowance (RDA) — not enough to prevent outright de ciency. PERQUE Zinc & Throat Guard lozenges and PERQUE Energized Double Zinc tabsules provide a special blend of fully soluble, energized zinc and synergistic nutrients for maximum immune support for people of all ages.*

Because each person absorbs zinc di erently, PERQUE Zinc & Throat Guard lozenges is a biocomplete, good-tasting formula combining:

  • Three activated forms of zinc (citrate, aspartate, andglycinate) for direct transporter-activated absorption and utilization.*

  • Vitamin C, a proven antioxidant, to strengthen the immune system.*

  • Echinacea purpurea, which boosts immune function and stimulates white blood cell production. Echinacea also has antibiotic, antiviral, and anti-in ammatory properties, which provide powerful synergy.*

  • Slippery Elm to soothe in amed and irritated mucous membranes.*

  • OPC ( avanol, active soluble proanthocyanidins), an anti- in ammatory and antiviral agent and an antioxidant and synergistic cofactor for the action of ascorbate (vitamin C).*


    More than a dozen studies show that zinc supplementation reduces the incidence of cold symptoms and the duration of illness. Zinc can also inhibit the growth of cold-causing viruses.*



For sore throats, PERQUE Zinc & Throat Guard lozenges can be taken every two hours while symptomatic.* Frequently,people take too little zinc and do not receive full benefit.

Unlike other zinc lozenges, PERQUE Zinc & Throat Guard is a complete, immune-building formula. Other zinc lozenges not only lack synergistic nutrients for immune enhancement, but also commonly use poorly absorbed, insoluble, or poorly available forms of zinc.*

PERQUE Zinc & Throat Guard lozenges are the perfect chewable daily zinc supplement and immune system enhancer for children. PERQUE Zinc & Throat Guard lozenges can be especially useful for children with poor growth and appetite.

In a randomised, double blind, placebo-controlled clinical trial, researchers studied the effects
of zinc lozenges on the common cold. 
Patients received either zinc lozenges or a placebo every two hours until their symptoms were gone. Researchers evaluated zinc’s effects on symptoms including cough, headache, scratchy throat, sore throat, sneezing, and fever. Zinc lozenges decreased the duration of cold symptoms by nearly half compared to the placebo group. 

In another study, researchers reviewed seven previousrandomized, controlled trials onthe e ectiveness of zinc gluconate lozenges for treating the common cold. The study concluded that the evidence supports the use of zinc lozenges for reducing the symptoms and duration of the common cold.
