Product Overview

Description
  • Dietary Supplement
  • Hypoallergenic
  • A High Bioavailability Zinc Supplement
  • Our Best-Absorbed Zinc Supplement
  • Essential for Growth and Immune Function
  • Promotes Reproductive Health
  • Without Preservatives, Magnesium Stearate, or Other Lubricants and Diluents

Zinc is essential for growth, immune system function, testosterone metabolism, as a cofactor for the antioxidant enzyme superoxide dismutase, and for many other functions in the body. Zinc is involved in the functioning of over 200 enzymes and plays a key role in genetic expression, cell division, and growth.

Zinc deficiency has been associated with adverse impacts on a number of structures and functions of the body. Individuals susceptible to zinc deficiency include the elderly, the immuno-compromised, those on parenteral nutrition, and burn victims.

Clinical studies demonstrate zinc supplementation can increase general wellness, and that it has a beneficial impact on connective tissue as well as reproductive health and eye health.

Because of zinc's essential role in human nutrition and metabolism, there is much interest in the absorption of zinc from both dietary intake and dietary supplements. While dietary zinc intake is effective in most situations, not all zinc dietary supplements have equal bioavailability.

Picolinic acid is a natural mineral chelator produced in the body. It is produced from the amino acid tryptophan in the liver and kidneys and is transported to the pancreas. During digestion, it is secreted from the pancreas into the small intestine, where it binds to minerals to facilitate their absorption.

Because picolinic acid facilitates the absorption of minerals, Zinc Picolinate is absorbed to a higher degree than is other zinc supplements.

Suggested Use

Take 1 capsule one to two times daily or as recommended by your health-care practitioner.

Microcrystalline cellulose, hypromellose (derived from cellulose) capsule, leucine, silicon dioxide.

Nutritionist grade

Posted by 5023433076629972616 on May 02, 2016

This was initially prescribed for me by my Nutritionist. It is great to be able to get it online as I need it instead of having to drive 30mins each way to get it from the Nutritionist, nut know it is the same high quality product.

Not vegan

Posted by bornsloppy on Apr 28, 2016

Bought this one but it is not vegan, the L-leucine comes from birds feathers. Too bad so only 1 star of 5 for this one. Otherwise high quality from Thorne.

Very good brand and product

Posted by 4780315284233451830 on Feb 18, 2016

I really like the Thorn brand as I always know I'm going to get a high quality product. My only criticism would be that at 15mg - it is insufficient zinc for me in one capsule. I think the dose should be increased to at least 30 mg. It is a small tablet so it's easy to swallow.
