Zinc is essential for growth, immune system function, 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.* 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.*
Because Picolinic acid facilitates the absorption of minerals, Zinc Picolinate is absorbed to a higher degree than is other zinc supplements.*
Suggested Use: Take 1 capsule one to two times daily or as recommended by a health-care practitioner.
Children and pregnant or lactating women should consult their healthcare practitioner prior to use. Zinc can inhibit the absorption of copper. Long-term zinc supplementation should include copper in a 15:1 (Zn: Cu) ratio.
