What is Zinc?
An essential mineral required by every cell in the body, zinc is concentrated in the muscles, bones, skin, kidneys, liver, pancreas, eyes, and, in men, the prostate. Because your body does not produce zinc, it depends on external sources for its supply. It is a key component to supporting a healthy immune function yet a surprising number of Americans don't get enough in their daily diet.*
Zinc and copper are considered essential trace minerals. Our Zinc is formulated with copper because it is important to take extra copper when using zinc for longer than a month, because zinc may interfere with copper absorption. Our Zinc is also chelated for easy absorption in the body.*
What does Zinc do?
Zinc plays a critical role in hundreds of body processes -- from cell growth to sexual maturation, even for taste and smell. Consequently, everyone who takes a daily multivitamin and mineral supplement should check it's zinc content.*
Zinc exerts beneficial effects on various hormones, including the sex and thyroid hormones. It shows promise for enhancing fertility in both men and women. Zinc may be beneficial for prostate health.*
Did you know? Almonds are a rich source of zinc for vegetarians, who may be deficient in it: 4 ounces provide about 6 mg - half the RDA of zinc for women.
