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.
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.
effective, works well

I am a nutritionist and I have absolute faith in Thorne products. I think they are very pure and contain no fillers or other nasties. This zinc is fantastic too. I definitely notice a change in my skin and hormones after taking it when I feel a bit depleted. Excellent price point too!
~Easy to swallow~
