PERQUE ZINC FORMULAS: BOTTOM LINE FOR IMMUNE SUPPORT

Due to poor diet, soil depletion, food processing, aging, and stress, zinc deficiency is widespread. Statistics indicate average intake ranges from 47% to 57% of Recommended Daily Allowance (RDA) -- not enough to prevent outright deficiency. PERQUE Zinc & Throat Guard Lozenges and PERQUE Energized Double Zinc Guard tablets provide a special blend of fully soluble, energized zinc and synergistic nutrients for maximum immune support for people of all ages.*

Because each person absorbs zinc differently, PERQUE Zinc & Throat Guard Lozenges is a biocomplete, good-tasting formula combining:

  • Three activated forms of zinc (citrate, aspartate, and glycinate) for direct transporter-activated absorption and utilization.*
  • Vitamin C, a proven antioxidant, to strengthen the immune system.*
  • Echinacea purpurea, which boosts immune function and stimulates white blood cell production. Echinacea also has antibiotic, antiviral, and anti-inflammatory properties, which provide powerful synergy.*
  • Slippery Elm to soothe inflamed and irritated mucous membranes.*
  • OPC 85+ (flavanol, active soluble proanthocyanidins), an anti-inflammatory and antiviral agent and an antioxidant and synergistic cofactor for the action of ascorbate (vitamin C).*
 

EFFECTIVE COLD AND FLU FIGHTER PLUS MUCH MORE

More than a dozen studies show that zinc supplementation reduces the incidence of cold symptoms and the duration of illness. Zinc can also inhibit the growth of cold-causing viruses. For sore throats, PERQUE Zinc & Throat Guard Lozenges can be taken every two hours while symptomatic.* Frequently, people take too little zinc and do not receive full benefit.

Unlike other zinc lozenges, PERQUE is a complete, immune-building formula. Other zinc lozenges not only lack synergistic nutrients for immune enhancement, but also commonly use poorly absorbed, insoluble, or poorly available forms of zinc.

PERQUE Zinc & Throat Guard Lozenges are the perfect chewable daily zinc supplement and immune system enhancer for children. PERQUE Zinc & Throat Guard Lozenges can be especially useful for children with poor growth and appetite.*

PERQUE ENERGIZED DOUBLE ZINC GUARD: THE ULTIMATE FORMULA

Zinc is involved in more body functions than any other mineral.* Experts estimate that over 10,000 enzyme reactions require zinc--many involved with immune defense and repair*. Zinc is essential for growth, development, sexual function, immune function, and chemical detoxification.* Without adequate zinc, healing cannot take place.*

DATA ON PERQUE DOUBLE ZINC: TIME TO MAXIMUM UPTAKE

Results indicate prompt and complete (95% to 100%) uptake of PERQUE Double Zinc.*

PERQUE ENERGIZED DOUBLE ZINC GUARD is a complete, immune-building formula using a blend of two ionized, fully soluble zinc sources for optimal absorption and utilization by every cell. The figure on the previous page indicates this rapid and optimal absorption. The PERQUE formula includes vitamin B-6 in its active form (pyridoxal- 5-phosphate) for increased uptake and activation of zinc.*

PERQUE ENERGIZED DOUBLE ZINC GUARD tablets are essential for teens. Reproductive hormones increase sharply during puberty, requiring significant amounts of zinc.* When zinc is in short supply, the skin suffers, resulting in a host of teenage skin problems, including acne.* Studies show that zinc is superior to tetracycline for treating acne.* For additional nutritional support for skin problems, include PERQUE2 Life Guard. Acne, burns, eczema, psoriasis, and wounds that heal slowly are all signs of low zinc status.*

POWERFUL BENEFITS FOR THE COMMON COLD

In a randomized, double blind, placebo-controlled clinical trial, researchers studied the effects of zinc lozenges on the common cold. Patients received either zinc lozenges or a placebo every two hours until their symptoms were gone. Researchers evaluated zinc’s effects on symptoms including cough, headache, scratchy throat, sore throat, sneezing, and fever. Zinc lozenges decreased the duration of cold symptoms by nearly half compared to the placebo group.*

In another study, researchers reviewed seven previous randomized, controlled trials on the effectiveness of zinc gluconate lozenges for treating the common cold. The study concluded that the evidence supports the use of zinc lozenges for reducing the symptoms and duration of the common cold.*
