Zinc Citrate (EBV)
Zinc has long been known as an effective anti-viral compound. Commonly found in lozenges marketed to speed healing from cold or flu, it is thought that having optimal zinc levels in the body inhibits the replication of viruses.
This is because zinc potentiates human cytokine interferon-alpha which is a protein whose primary role is to inhibit viral replication . Zinc also supports the production of a powerful antioxidant call superoxide dismutase which protects your cells from the damaging effects of viral pathogens.
Finally, zinc helps to downregulate the inflammatory response of the body which can help keep the immune system functioning properly. It is estimated that 25% of the world’s population is zinc deficient so this one is important!
