Zinc starves the bacteria that need to feed off manganese, an essential metal, in order to thrive and attack the body. By blocking this process, Zinc weakens the bacteria and makes the job of the immune system so much easier.

The essential mineral Zinc, is one of the very best anti-bacterial agents.
