Description

Used for the Immune System, Pregnancy, Rheumatoid Arthritis, Alcoholism, Wound Healing, Prostate Enlargement & Acne. The total amount of zinc in the human adult has been estimated to be approximately 2 grammes, of which more than 80% is found in bone, hair and skin and as a component of many biological processes. Interest in zinc nutrition was first shown in 1963 when a study on adolescent boys from the Nile delta was shown to link low zinc intakes with dwarfism and delayed sexual maturation.

Zinc, when ingested, forms a complex with picolinic acid which enhances the rate of absorption of zinc. The quantity of zinc absorbed is directly related to the availability of picolinic acid which is synthesised from tryptophan. If this conversion is impaired, or there is a deficiency of vitamin B6 which is required for the conversion, then the result will be impaired zinc absorption. Therefore, providing zinc picolinate enables the body to bypass this stage and leads to effective absorption.

90 Tablets supplied.
