In addition to Zincatest® (liquid), do you offer other taste test products for other nutrients?
R/ There is no similar test to Zincatest® for any other Lamberts® nutrient. The reason why Zincatest® works in a taste response is that zinc ions are involved in the activity of human taste buds and, therefore, have a direct interaction with our tongue to indicate a high or low level of zinc in the body. No other nutrient has this same effect.
Zincatest® liquid was developed by Dr. Derek Bryce-Smith as a reliable and easy-to-administer method to assess zinc status. Dr. Bryce-Smith (who was Professor of Organic Chemistry at the University of Reading) published his findings in a study titled Anorexia, Depression and Zinc Deficiency, and also published a book called Zinc Solution.
