Zinc Disclaimer

32 Effervescent Breath Crystals utilize Zinc as part of its bad-breath eliminating formula. Zinc is an essential mineral that is part of a healthy, balanced diet, and just about everybody can benefit from having Zinc in their diet.

32 Effervescent Breath Crystals includes 1.8mg of Zinc, which is 12% of the US Recommended Daily Allowance (RDA). We give this information on the box, and here on the website as a service to individuals who are sensitive to Zinc and/or similar.

While Zinc is considered healthy, too much of anything can be harmful. Excessive amounts of zinc can inhibit copper and iron absorption; can interfere with stomach acid; and can damage nerve receptors in the nose (which, in turn, can cause anosmia). Zinc can also be toxic to pets, particularly dogs and parrots.

The above is not meant to alarm – it’s simply a guideline / information for those who know they are sensitive. It’s quite possible (and even likely) your multi-vitamin contains more Zinc than the US RDA.
