Soothe a sore throat.
Due to poor diet, soil depletion, food processing, aging, and stress, most individuals do not receive enough zinc in their diet. In fact, statistics indicate that an average intake of 47% to 57% of the Recommended Daily Allowance (RDA) is not enough to prevent deficiency. And yet, zinc is an important mineral for supporting the immune system, as well as treating common cold symptoms like sore, scratchy throats.
Pure Essentials Ultra Throat Relief is a biocomplete, good-tasting formula combining three activated forms of zinc (citrate, aspartate, and glycinate) for direct transporter-activated absorption and utilization. Because every person absorbs zinc differently, Pure Essentials Ultra Throat Relief’s unique formulation acts effectively and quickly to resolve your cold and flu symptoms.
Additional nutrients in the formulation that function synergistically to further promote relief, include:
- Vitamin C, a proven antioxidant, to strengthen the immune system.
- Echinacea purpurea, an herb that boosts immune function and stimulates white blood cell production. Echinacea also has antibiotic, antiviral, and anti-inflammatory properties, which provide powerful synergy.
- Slippery elm (Ulmus fulva), an herb that soothes inflamed and irritated mucous membranes.
- Proanthocyanidin oligomers (OPCs), a type of flavanol. These active and soluble proanthocyanidins act as anti-inflammatory and antiviral agents, and also as an antioxidant and synergistic cofactor for the action of ascorbate (vitamin C)
