Zinc: essential for your health
Along with iron, zinc is the second most abundant trace element in the human body. As a key atom of many zinc metalloenzymes, it is involved in essential metabolic processes. As part of antioxidant enzymes, zinc helps protect cells from oxidative stress. Zinc contributes to a normal metabolism of the macronutrients (carbohydrate, fat and protein metabolism), as well as to the normal function of the immune system and to the maintenance of a normal testosterone level. Zinc is involved in the construction of the genetic material and plays a role in cell growth. In this context, zinc helps maintain normal bones, hair, skin and nails. ZeinPharma® Zinc Chelate 25 mg capsules offers you a highly bioavailable zinc chelate compound, which sufficiently supplies your body with just one capsule a day.
Very good bioavailability
In food, zinc is naturally bound to amino acids. The ZeinPharma® zinc chelate capsules contain zinc, which is also bound to amino acids (glycine) as in nature. In this form it is highly bioavailable. The bioavailability of this so-called zinc chelate even exceeds that of zinc gluconate, which in turn already has a superior bioavailability. Moreover, there are indications that the absorption of zinc bisglycinate by other food components (phytates) is far less affected compared to other zinc forms.
Be careful of the quality!
How well your body can absorb zinc depends on the form it is present. Some zinc compounds are less well absorbed by the body than others. Organic zinc compounds have been found to be favourable in terms of bioavailability, in other words absorption capacity. Zinc chelate is a particularly well bioavailable organic zinc compound.
The commonly available zinc oxide is inexpensive, but in a worse absorbed compound form. Thus, pay close attention to the form, in which zinc is present in zinc products.
Most zinc products are available on the market in normal, non-enteric capsules. With these products it is difficult to understand, whether the zinc is optimally absorbed and if the trace element can really be effective.
Stomach-friendly and highly-bioavailable
Since zinc is re-absorbed in the small intestine, it can irritate the stomach, while the capsule must “survive” the journey to the intestine and, hence, also the stomach acid. With the DrCaps we have developed gastro-resistant and stomach-friendly capsules for you, without any additives. On the one hand, this means that the contained zinc safely reaches the small intestine and is only released there. On the other hand, zinc in this form is particularly gentle on the stomach. So, if you have a sensitive stomach, you no longer need to divide your zinc supply into multiple doses. You can only take our zinc supplement once a day in order to optimally and easily supply your body with the necessary dosage.
Optimal product protection
5 Reasons for zinc
• Contributes to the maintenance of normal skin, hair and nails
• Contributes to the normal functioning of the immune system
• Contributes to normal fertility and reproduction
• Essential for the metabolism
• Dietary intake can be affected by many factors
When taking calcium and iron at the same time, it may affect the absorption of zinc. Thus, if you take more mineral- or trace element-supplements, we recommend keeping at least two hours between taking the various products in order to ensure optimal intake.
