- Provides Highly Absorbed Zinc for a Variety of Protocols
- High-Concentration Zinc to Boost Immune Function
Zinc is an essential trace mineral important to many functions of human health. It plays a role in maintaining cellular metabolism and gene expression. Zinc is critical to a diverse group of physiological processes, such as immune function, insulin signaling, tissue repair, vision and neuro-transmission. It is second only to iron in worldwide incidence of deficiency, impacting 2 billion people in developing nations. Due to the wide range of functions regulated by zinc, deficiency, or even marginal deficiency, can have serious health implications.
1 or more capsules per day or as recommended by your health care professional.
The importance of bioavailability is obvious. If consuming a zinc supplement has little effect on improving the body’s zinc balance, there is no reason to ingest it. Signs of inferior mineral supplements include the use of cheap, poorly absorbed, rock-salt minerals. Zinc Active ON is formulated with the superior amino acid chelate form, zinc glycinate, which does not ionize in the gut and therefore is not impacted by dietary factors and is absorbed at a higher rate than those formulated with zinc salt forms.
Comparison studies have shown significantly superior absorption of mineral chelates compared to other mineral forms.
- Chelated zinc is 230% better absorbed than zinc sulfate
- Chelated zinc is 390% better absorbed than zinc oxide
- Chelated Zinc offers greater protection from interfering dietary factors
Zinc plays a crucial role in boosting immune function, maintaining healthy tissue growth, and increasing the antioxidant reserves that protect the body from free radical damage. Low zinc status has been associated with increased risk of immune challenges, skin weakness, and increased age-related visual decline.
