Product Information

Zinc is essential for growth, immune system function, testosterone metabolism, as a cofactor for the antioxidant enzyme superoxide dismutase, and for many other functions in the body.* Zinc is involved in the functioning of over 200 enzymes and plays a key role in genetic expression, cell division, and growth.*

Zinc deficiency has been associated with adverse impacts on a number of structures and functions of the body.* Individuals susceptible to zinc deficiency include the elderly, the immuno-compromised, those on parenteral nutrition, and burn victims.*

Clinical studies demonstrate zinc supplementation can increase general wellness, and that it has a beneficial impact on connective tissue as well as reproductive health and eye health.*

Low-molecular-weight organic acids, such as citrate, have a positive effect on zinc absorption.* Certain dietary factors, such as phytic acid found in grains, can interfere with the body's absorption of minerals. An animal study found citrate can offset the negative effects of dietary phytic acid on zinc absorption.*
