Zinc can shorten the duration of a cold, but ConsumerLab.com found that few products provide a dosage that's been proven effective. Zinc can also slow the progression of advanced macular degeneration of the eye, but please choose products carefully -- ConsumerLab.com identifed two nearly identical products with proven eye formulas, but one cost significantly more than the other.
 
Zinc supplements may be useful in treating other conditions including acne, depression, and anorexia nervosa, as well as in preventing and correcting zinc deficiency. ConsumerLab.com identified a range of zinc products that meet quality standards — some costing as little as 3 cents per day!
