The Unsung Hero of Immunity and Beyond!
Zinc is crucial for bolstering our immune defenses, supporting cell growth and DNA synthesis, and ensuring proper wound healing and sensory functions.
The Importance of Zinc
Zinc is an essential trace mineral that plays a vital role in numerous biological processes in the human body. It is essential for immune function, protein synthesis, wound healing, DNA synthesis, and cell division. It also supports normal growth and development during pregnancy, childhood, and adolescence, and is required for proper sense of taste and smell.
Since Zinc cannot be stored by the body, getting enough from the diet can be difficult. Taking Zinc as a dietary supplement is an excellent idea and our Zinc is one of the most bioavailable forms of zinc. Zinc Picolinate is one of several forms of zinc that can be ingested as a supplement. The term “picolinate” refers to picolinic acid, which is a natural acid found in the body. Zinc picolinate is considered to be a more absorbable form of zinc, meaning the body takes in and use more zinc from zinc picolinate than from other forms.
