Thompson, Zinc Picolinate 25 mg,
60 Tablets, Made In USA
Zinc is essential for growth, immune system function, testosterone metabolism,
as 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.
Zinc deficiency has been associated with adverse impacts on a number of structures
and functions of the body. 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 of zinc's essential role in human nutrition and
metabolism, there is much interest in the absorption of zinc from both dietary
intake and dietary supplements. While dietary zinc intake is effective in most
situations, not all zinc dietary supplements have equal bioavailability.
Picolinic acid is a natural mineral chelator produced in the body. It is produced
from the amino acid tryptophan in the liver and kidneys and is transported to
the pancreas. During digestion, it is secreted from the pancreas into the small
intestine, where it binds to minerals to facilitate their absorption. Because
picolinic acid facilitates the absorption of minerals, Zinc Picolinate is
absorbed to a higher degree than is other zinc supplements.
