As manufacturer of Zinc Picolinate we hereby state the following facts about the drug:

ANTIVIRAL ACTIVITY OF ZINC
Although zinc is a component of ∼10% of the human proteome (complement of proteins that can be expressed by a cell, tissue, or organism), it can stimulate a variety of signaling events, including the antiviral response.
In vitro studies have proved that free zinc may possess potent antiviral effects, and are supported by various trials.
Zinc treatment applied at a therapeutic dose and in the right form has the potential to drastically improve the clearance of both chronic and acute viral infections, as well as their accompanying pathologies and symptoms.
Zinc is an antiviral can be separated into 2 categories:
1. Zinc supplementation implemented to improve the antiviral response and systemic immunity in patients.
2. Zinc treatment is performed to specifically inhibit viral replication or infection-related symptoms.
Coronaviruses (CoV) are positive-stranded RNA viruses that infect millions of people worldwide each year.
Zinc acts against CoV through inhibition of the RNA-dependent RNA polymerase (RdRp). As concluded in one of the studies, severe acute respiratory syndrome (SARS) coronavirus RdRp template binding and elongation were inhibited by zinc in Vero-E6 cells.
