  • People wishing to protect themselves against common infections – winter colds and flu, environmental exposure (teachers and childcare workers, hospital employees), and those under physical/mental stress whose immunity could be weakened
  • People with sensitivities. Vitamin C and zinc may help to support healthy immune function
  • People who avoid eating fruit due to sugar content, allergy or salicylate sensitivity
  • People who, due to intrinsic soil zinc deficiency, produce food of lower zinc content than optimal.
  • Men planning conception or who ejaculate frequently and require additional zinc supplementation (seminal zinc loss)
  • Teenagers who have an increased demand for zinc during their growing phase, for managing acne-prone skin
  • Those with connective tissue weakness, ageing tissues or easy bruising tendency
  • Those with chronic stress exposure which depletes adrenal Vitamin C stores
  • Elderly Australians with photo-aging of the lens of the eye due to chronic sunlight exposure. They may be protected against this condition due to the antioxidant activity of Vitamin C.
