Thorne Zinc Picolinate 30 mg 180 VCaps

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.

Dr. Michael Lebowitz D.C. Recommends:
Check it in the following problems: kinin-mediated allergies, prostaglandin imbalances, recurrent cranial faults, thyroid and adrenal problems, leukotriene excess, and fatigue. A zinc deficiency is also associated with acne, anorexia, apathy, sterility, irritability, impotence, impaired wound healing, and eczema. Be certain when you give zinc to also monitor copper levels so you do not create a copper deficiency. Also check Zinc Citrate, since it often shows when Zinc Picolinate is negative. Zinc and magnesium are the two single minerals that Dr. Michael Lebowitz prescribes the most.
