Zinc is present in every cell in the body and is also a component of over 200 enzymes and involved in more enzymatic reactions than any other mineral constituent in mammals.* Zinc is essential for normal skin, vision, smell, taste, reproduction, brain development, protein synthesis and wound healing.* It is also one of the most important factors in a healthy immune system.* Zinc is involved in just about every aspect of the immune system, including the immune system enhancing “T” cells that are necessary for immune system response.*
Zinc levels in the body may be lowered for many reasons including the following:
• occasional diarrhea;
• fiber consumption, which causes zinc excretion through the intestinal tract;
• high calcium and iron consumption;
• copper ingestion.

I bought the 8oz and everything was okay (it had a seal). Then, I bought this 16oz and it was missing the seal. Now, I have to return it. Also, one of my friends bought the 16oz and it came without seal - very disappointing !!
The bottle I received had a hole in the cap, as others have noted. I called Kirkman and they explained that this is to prevent it from exploding in transit due to pressure build-up. There *is* supposed to be both an outer shrink-wrap seal and a plastic/cardboard disc seal under the cap, both of which were present on the one I received.
This is a good zinc supplement. It has a funky pseudo-sweet taste that could be better, that's the only reason I'm dinging a star. It's kind of yuck. But mixing it with juice, it's okay. I can still taste it - it has a chemical taste I'm not fond of - but I do have to say that it works - does the trick. Having celiac I have trouble absorbing zinc. I also take Raw Zinc from Garden of Life which I like, as the capsules are easily absorbable. But on days I don't feel like taking capsules, I use this and am happy with it. I do feel that my body benefits from it and that it's effective. I like that it's alpha ketoglutarate, rather than the usual zinc sulfate, I think that's a better form that my body prefers.
So far ir is okay.
