It also supports cardiovascular and circulatory health and allows absorption of iron from the vegetables you consume.* It gives immunity support for seasonal health conditions, helps maintain healthy tissue in the body and promotes healthy aging.
Zinc is not as popular as Vitamin C, but it should be because of the powerful immune support it provides, therefore making it another great and essential addition to your supplement regimen.
