Highly Absorbable zinc as TRAACS® Amino Acid Chelate. Zinc Glycinate features the 100% fully reacted TRAACS® zinc bisglycinate chelate by Albion® Laboratories, Inc. Zinc is essential for the development and proper functioning of the reproductive organs, including healthy prostate function, and has been shown to provide support for a healthy immune system function. Zinc also supports enzyme activity associated with tissue synthesis, energy metabolism, and bone mineralization. Zinc Glycinate™ is readily bioavailable and easily absorbed as an intact chelate as it does not get ionized in the gut before it is absorbed. Instead, it appears to be metabolized in the body right at the target tissue. Deficiencies in zinc can lead to an impaired immune system, decreased glucose metabolism, hormone imbalance and slower wound healing. Benefits may also include: Promotes proper immune system function Maintains healthy glucose metabolism Supports hormone balance May assist with wound healing SUGGESTED USAGE Take one capsule daily or as directed by your healthcare practitioner.
