What is Zinc Picolinate?
Zinc is a trace mineral found in almost every cell of the body. The mineral is essential for human life as it forms the active site of over 20 enzymes. The average human body maintains 2.5g of Zinc which is absorbed through dietary sources. Our bodies can't make the element so the only way we can obtain Zinc is through the diet and supplementation. Zinc-rich foods include herring, beef, lamb, sunflower seeds and cheese.
Zinc Picolinate is a form of Zinc that is readily absorbed, perhaps absorbed even more easily than Zinc in its purest form.
Benefits of Zinc Picolinate
Zinc Picolinate has several health benefits, including its contribution to macronutrient (carbohydrates, fat and protein) metabolism. Zinc also acts as an antioxidant to prevent the damage of DNA, proteins and lipids. The essential mineral is well known to contribute to the health of our immune system, maintaining fertility and male health by ensuring that the serum testosterone levels in the blood are maintained. In addition, Zinc contributes to the maintenance of normal hair, nails, skin, vision and normal bones.
