Zinc deficiency, diarrhoea.
How it works
Zinc gluconate is necessary for the proper functioning of over 200 metalloenzymes, including carbonic anhydrase, carboxypeptidase A, alcohol dehydrogenase, alkaline phosphatase, and RNA polymerase. It is also required to maintain structure in nucleic acids, proteins, and cell membranes. Physiological functions that are zinc dependent include cell growth and division.
