- Comes in 120 Capsules
- For immune and reproductive health
- Maintain antioxidant activity
- Support important physiological processes and enzymatic reactions
Xymogen’s ‘Zinc Glycinate’ is a fully reacted amino acid chelate formula designed for optimal enhanced absorption. As an extremely important and essential mineral, zinc is vital to many physiological processes in the body. Zinc supports immune function, neurological function, normal cellular function, growth, nutrient metabolism, and reproductive organ health.
Dosage and Directions for Use
Serving Size: 1 Capsule. Provides 20 mg zinc bis-glycinate chelate, for 182% DV of zinc.
Take one capsule daily, or as directed by a healthcare practitioner or professional. Although zinc is well tolerated and an essential mineral, it can still bioaccumulate and interfere with the absorption of other important minerals like copper.
We recommend consulting with a naturopath or health care professional prior to use if you are on any pre-existing medications or have any current health conditions.
Like most other Xymogen products, Zinc Glycinate is completely free of wheat, gluten, corn, yeast, soy, dairy, and animal products. It also does not contain any fish, shellfish, peanuts, tree nuts, eggs, GMO ingredients, artificial colors, artificial sweeteners, or preservatives.
The Importance of a High-Quality Zinc Supplement
Zinc is considered an essential ‘trace’ mineral, and plays a role in the normal functioning of the body, as more than 300 different enzymatic reactions rely on zinc for cellular metabolism.
Zinc contributes to effective carbohydrate and protein metabolism as a ‘cofactor’ and regulates immune function including T lymphocytes, natural killer cells, and interleukin II. This is why zinc is often included in many “ani-viral” formulations, and the popularity of zinc as a supplement soared during the peak of the pandemic.
The regular bio-availability of zinc can often be compromised through dietary sources, as elements found in plant-based founds like phytic acid can bind to minerals and prevent their absorption. Other minerals like iron and calcium can also interfere with zinc absorption, especially when in supplemental form.
In Zymogen’s zinc formula, zinc is combined with two glycine molecules to “facilitate its absorption across the intestinal wall and reduce interference from phytic acid and competing minerals.”
