The Asportek formula provides the consumer with a simple and inexpensive screening method to determine the need for zinc. By using the zinc tester to determine one's zinc requirements and by carrying out a new test after 30 days of supplementation, one can, not only determine his/her zinc requirements but also assess if the zinc supplements taken as part of a program are properly absorbed.
Zinc Tester may provide a simple method for evaluating zinc status. After placing 10 mL of Zinc Tester in the mouth, a lack of taste or a delayed taste perception suggests a possible zinc insufficiency. An immediate taste perception suggests zinc status may be adequate.
