Zinc is an essential mineral that is present in most of cells. A human body contains approximately 2 to 3 g of zinc found in bone, teeth, hair, skin, liver, muscle, white cells, and testicle. Zinc stimulates the activities of enzymes which are catalysts of biological reactions in the body. Zinc is necessary for a healthy immune system with possibility of anti-infections and flu prevention. Zinc helps to heal wounds quickly, stimulate the growth of new cells, and restore cells wounded by free radicals. Zinc is also essential for DNA synthesis, stimulates the metabolism of vitamin A and the activities of vision and central nervous system.

In addition, zinc supports the normal growth and development of foetus in womb and during their childhood and teenager.

Protracted diarrhoea states lose a significant amount of zinc. The reduction of zinc in the body delays the reproduction and restoration processes of structures and functions of intestinal mucosal cells resulting in extending the diarrhoea condition. Therefore, the supplement of zinc is able to reduce diarrhoea in patients with protracted diarrhoea.


Absorption of zinc from the gastrointestinal tract is incomplete; bioavailability of dietary zinc is about 20 to 30%. Zinc is distributed throughout the body with the highest concentrations found in muscle, bone, skin, eye, and prostatic fluids. It is primarily excreted in the faeces; small amounts are lost in urine and perspiration.


Combining with oral rehydration salts solution in regimen of protracted diarrhoea treatment (according to WHO recommendation).

Adding zinc to daily dietary.

A gastric upset feeling has been rarely reported; this condition (if any) disappears after using the drug for few days.

Informs your physician about any adverse effects occur during the treatment.


In acute toxicity, zinc salt causes erosion due to the formation of zinc chloride under the effect of gastric acid. Treatment by giving milk, alkaline metal carbonates, or active charcoal to patients. Do not apply gastric lavage or emesis.

A prolonged use of zinc or zinc-contaminated dialysate will cause copper deficiency, leading to sideroblastic anemia, neutropenia. Zinc level in blood is reduced by the used of sodium calcium edetate.
