Zinc picolinate with vitamin C – 90 capsules

Zinc strengthens the immune system, provides beautiful skin and hair

Many cellular functions are influenced by zinc: It is a component of many enzymes, regulates the hormonal balance, is involved in the synthesis of DNA, RNA or proteins and affects the cellular and humoral immunity.

In most living beings zinc is an essential trace element and in the human body the most common besides iron. Higher concentrations of zinc can be found in the red blood cells, the eyes, the skin, the hair, the prostate and the liver.

Zinc´s function in the metabolism

Zinc is the cofactor of numerous enzyme systems and plays a role in the vitamin A, carbohydrate and lipid metabolism. It also fulfils important tasks in the metabolism of nucleic acids and proteins. Zinc is involved in the cell growth and cell differentiation.

Zinc can be of importance for the immune system, the body growth, the health of the hair, skin and nails as well as the female and male fertility.

Foods containing high amounts of zinc

Zinc from animal-based foods can be utilised better by the body than zinc from plant-based foods. High amounts of zinc can be found in shrimps, peanuts, corn, egg yolk, parmesan, Brazil nuts, lentils, sunflower seeds, beef, pumpkin seeds, oatmeal, calf´s liver, Edam cheese, bran, cocoa, meat, fish, wholemeal and vegetables.

Zinc picolinate is an organic compound which is excellently resorbable

Dietary supplements containing zinc are available in different forms. Apart from zinc picolinate, there are further forms such as zinc citrate, zinc oxide or zinc gluconate.
Zinc picolinate is a chemical combination of zinc and picolinic acid, which is an organic compound.

Studies show that zinc picolinate, compared to zinc citrate and zinc gluconate, can be resorbed best in the human organism.
