Health First Zinc Citrate
Balanced Ratio of Core Minerals to help support immune function and maintain healthy skin, hair, and nails.
Feel like you get enough zinc in your diet? Surprisingly, Health Canada estimates that 10‑35% of Canadians are not getting enough! If you’re noticing a loss of appetite, increased infections, slower wound healing, skin issues, hair loss, and/or poor mental performance, you may need a little boost via zinc supplementation.
Health First Zinc Plus Copper contains zinc citrate, a more bioavailable form of zinc compared to the zinc gluconate and zinc oxide found in other supplements. What’s unique about this formula is the addition of the trace mineral, copper: zinc supplementation without copper may cause a copper deficiency, so it’s important to look for a formula that combines the two!
Copper is another essential nutrient. Together with iron, it enables the body to form red blood cells. It helps to maintain healthy bones, blood vessels, nerves, and immune function and contributes to iron absorption. Health First Zinc Plus Copper is a winning combination!
Features & Benefits:
- Contains 50 mg of zinc citrate and 2 mg of copper

Zinc helps to strengthen the immune system and to ward off infections. Specifically, a Zinc deficiency reduces the number of T-cells affecting the functioning of white blood cells. Like Vitamin C, Zinc has antiviral properties. Zinc is needed for cellular growth and plays a major role in wound healing.
Zinc deficiencies can disrupt normal sexual functioning in males. Both prostate enlargement and male infertility due to low sperm count are associated with Zinc deficiency. Sufficient Zinc is required for proper vision, taste, and smell. A Zinc deficiency can result in impaired sensory functioning. Zinc is also important to maintaining healthy skin and helps to treat acne conditions.
