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.

This is another great product from Thorne with no toxic expidients and great quality supplement. I get tested by a kinesiologist for my supplements and when they are Thorne, it always shows up as being beneficial and when they aren't, it usually is a different story. My only regret with this product is that they only offer a 60 capsule option as I would buy it in a larger bottle to save on cost and packaging. The capsules are tiny and easy to swallow.

I never know whether supplements work or not so I just keep taking them :D. I like these as they are a really easy capsule to swallow and they are vegan. Will buy again.

Great product! My nails are growing for the first time in years. No side effects either which I sometimes experience from supplements

I'm an Australian customer. Poor immune function and multiple food sensitivities are some things I have to manage. I've only been taking these for 2 weeks. I'm taking two a day (200% dv). They are doing their job of keeping skin breakouts to a minimum, and have kept me from feeling like the flu that I had before starting on them is not still lurking about. Usually if I get sick it likes to come back again and again. The smaller sized capsules are much nicer to swallow than the average zinc tablets you buy from the chemist or supermarket - of which I would normally have to take 4 + daily to get a result. Better price than the zinc powders (which from memory where like $30 -$40). I bought 2 products: these and Thorne's B-Complex#12. I'm happy with both. I thought postage costs and delivery time where good. I'm happy to keep going with these and would recommend Thorne products to friends.
