This product may be used in one of two ways:
(i) as a food supplement and
(ii) as a taste test to indicate zinc status
Take one 5ml spoon of Zincatest daily. You may wish to dilute this liquid in water or orange juice.
As a taste test to indicate zinc status:
Take the test at least one hour after food or drink. Simply add 5ml of Zincatest solution to 60ml of water and immediately swirl one 5ml spoonful of the diluted mixture around in the mouth for 10 seconds (this mixture can then be swallowed or spat out).
The taste sensation that results from this test provides an indication of zinc status:
Solution tastes like water : Your zinc status is low*
Slightly dry, furry, mineral-like or even : Your zinc status is marginally low*
sweet taste develops after a few seconds
Definite taste, which intensifies with time : Marginally positive zinc status*
Strong unpleasant taste noticed : Your zinc status is positive*
* If your status is low or marginally low, use a zinc supplement or Zincatest until response improves to a positive status. A 3-6 month course of zinc supplementation may be necessary.
A fresh solution should be made up each time a test is required.
After opening, replace cap and store in a refrigerator.
Each 5ml provides 15mg zinc sulphate
