We have devised our own functional taste test for assessing zinc levels. It is one of the first tests we do with clients at the BePure clinic. Utilising blood testing for zinc status is unreliable because your body will hold zinc in the blood even if you are chronically deficient.
Why do we need zinc?
Zinc is involved in over 200 enzyme reactions within our bodies. Zinc deficiency often means poorer absorption of zinc from high zinc foods. Meaning it simply isn’t possible to restore zinc levels through diet alone.
Taking the Zinc Taste Test is quick and easy and anyone in your family can do it.
Here’s how the zinc taste test works
Detecting the naturally bitter or unpleasant taste of zinc is dependent on having enough zinc in your body to detect it. For many people, they can take a liquid sample of zinc and it tastes just like water.
If you find your zinc levels are low BePure Zinc Restore is an easy and effective way to build them up to healthy levels once again.
