The balance of Zinc, Copper and Vitamin C promote the health of the immune system and regulate the correct hormonal balance.
Our Zinc is sourced from Zinc Citrate and our formula provides 15mg of elemental Zinc in each tablet. Zinc occurs naturally in herring, beef, lamb, sunflower seeds and cheese. Other sources include shellfish, other dairy products, bread and cereal products. The Recommended Nutrient Intake (or RNI) for men is 9.5mg, whereas women require 7mg per day. The average quantity of Zinc absorbed within the human body is 15mg per day, although the human body stores 2.5g total Zinc across all organs, tissues, fluids and secretions. The health benefits of Zinc include its contribution to the process of cell division, DNA synthesis, fertility and reproduction. In addition, Zinc acts as an antioxidant to protect cells from oxidative stress and aid the functioning of the immune system. Zinc is also well known for its properties in macronutrient metabolism, including carbohydrates, fatty acids and acid-base metabolism, as well as contributing to normal hair, skin, nails, vision and testosterone levels.
Copper exists in the body in two forms: cuprous and cupric. The element has been used for centuries, as early as 9000BC, mainly in the building industry. Our Copper is sourced from Copper Gluconate which is biologically available for absorption. Copper is largely available in foods such as Brazil nuts, pistachio nuts, oysters and shellfish. Copper has several uses, many of which are vital for the full functionality of the body. For starters, Copper contributes to the maintenance of normal connective tissues and protects cells from oxidative stress, as an antioxidant. Copper is also commonly used to benefit the normal function of the immune system, aid normal energy metabolism and functioning of the nervous system. Lastly, Copper is used for normal skin and hair pigmentation, as well as to support the transport of iron in the body.
Vitamin C is a water-soluble antioxidant, also known as Ascorbic acid and Ascorbate. Vitamin C is best known for its history to cure scurvy. Public Health England recommends a minimum consumption of 40mg of Vitamin C a day as the vitamin can’t be stored in the body. Vitamin C has several roles within the body but is most commonly known for its ability to maintain the normal function of the immune system during and after intense physical activity. Vitamin C also works in conjunction with Iron, aiding the absorption of non-haem Iron to increase absorption levels and prevent deficiency. Vitamin C is a potent antioxidant that helps to scavenge free radicals, reduce oxidative stress and reduce tiredness and fatigue. Vitamin C also contributes to the regeneration of the reduced form of Vitamin E, another common antioxidant. Additionally, Vitamin C is well known to contribute to the formation of bones, cartilage, gums, skin and teeth.
