The beneficial effects of zinc are extensive due to the fact that zinc is involved in over 200 enzymes and biological processes in the body. Zinc is found in every cell in the body and is essential for the proper action of many hormones in the body, such as insulin, growth hormone and the sex hormones in both men and women. In men zinc supports male sex hormones, prostate health and fertility. Zinc is essential for protein production to support growth, repair and wound healing. Adolescents and the very young can use up their zinc stores during rapid growth spurts.
Although severe zinc deficiency is rare, marginal deficiencies are common due to poor dietary choices and zinc being deficient in New Zealand soil. The elderly, adolescents and the young being more at risk. Zinc deficiency may present as white spots on finger nails, loss of sense of taste and smell, poor night vision, delayed wound healing, skin problems and an increased susceptibility to infection.

Clinicians products support rather than compete with modern medicines. As medicines can deplete nutrients in the body, it was important to develop nutritional products that replenish the nutrients lost. Clinicians products, if taken on a regular basis, can also reduce the dependency on modern medicines.
Back in 1997, two pharmacists - Mike Cushman and Denis Kay - came to realise that the current pharmaceutical model was limited. Simply put, it couldn’t provide the total answer to delivering wellness for their customers. Mike and Denis researched general and specific conditions to understand key drivers that triggered the imbalances that caused specific conditions. Along with this they researched the impact of modern medicines on body processes and their contribution to these imbalances.
And the result? The Clinicians product range of nutritional support. The product range developed includes not only general vitamin and mineral supplements, but also products for specific conditions and now a Works With Medicine range.
