Zinplex Junior has been purposely formulated for children aged two months to six years. It consists of a unique mixture of Zinc Picolinate, Selenium Amino Acid Chelate and Vitamin C to help improve the immune system. Zinc Picolinate improves the functions of various organs and is vital for normal growth and mental development. Zinc also helps to protect the skin against skin problems like eczema, dermatitis and skin rashes.
The idea and manufacturing of Zinplex was put into practice in 1985 by its owner and now CEO of the company, Mr Ockert Fourie. With 53 years of pharmaceutical experience behind him and following the enormous success of Zinplex in adults, Zinplex Junior was borne.
“Parents started asking for the preface of Syrup for babies, toddlers and small children to enable them to obtain the benefits of Zinc and Selenium in a liquid form as tables are generally a problem for children to swallow. Because of the effectiveness of Zinplex Junior it is now also used by government institutions including the Red Cross Children's Hospital in Cape Town and Arthur Lethule Hospital, Kimberly,” says Fourie.
This year Zinplex will be exhibiting their products at The Baby Expo in Joburg, Durban and Cape Town. “The Baby Expo is known for showcasing innovative and ground-breaking products, which has ensured that we are the biggest and most successful baby and parenting exhibition in South Africa. Zinplex Junior is exactly the type of product that our visitors are searching for,” says Projeni Pather, managing director of Exposure Marketing & Communication, the team behind The Baby Expo.
“We are looking forward to this year's exhibitions as The Baby Expo provides the perfect platform for companies such as ourselves to introduce our products to a new group of parents; a captive target audience under one roof. Being endorsed by adult users, government institutions and now The Baby Expo, proves the worth of our products. I believe Zinplex Junior is the perfect fit for The Baby Expo,” says Eric Fookes from The House of Zinplex.
With a multitude of benefits associated with zinc, including reducing the incidence of diarrhoea, helping with weight gain in under-weight children, reducing hyperactivity, and ultimately improving the immune systems of infants and small children, Zinplex Junior is bound to set parents' minds at ease.
