Zinconat 10 mg
• Highly bioavailable zinc gluconate
• Gastric juice-resistant capsules
• Optimal intake
• Protects the stomach
• Covers the total daily zinc requirement
• 100% vegan and vegetarian
Your body can not produce the essential zinc by itself. Since the trace element is vital, the supply through the diet or, if needed also through dietary supplements, is important. Zinc has many functions in the body and supports around 300 enzymes!
It contributes to the maintenance of normal skin and supports normal protein synthesis. The trace element also helps maintain a normal level of testosterone in the blood and contributes to a healthy carbohydrate metabolism. Zinc is also valuable for your hair, nails, bones and even your cognitive functions. Apart from that, it performs a role in cell division and also helps protect your cells from oxidative stress.
Pay attention to quality!
How well your body can absorb zinc, depends on the form in which 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, i.e. absorption capacity. Zinc gluconate is a particularly well bioavailable organic zinc compound. According to a study from 2014, the water-soluble zinc gluconate is significantly more bioavailable than the zinc oxide.
The commonly available zinc oxide is a cheap, but also a badly absorbed by the body zinc compound. Therefore, pay close attention to the form in which zinc is present in zinc products.
Most zinc products are available in normal non-enteric capsules. With these products it is difficult to understand, whether the zinc is optimally absorbed and can really work.
A question of timing - the release
Avoid inhibitory interactions with food components!
With the enteric-coated capsules, the zinc is released only in the small intestine, where it is also absorbed. This will ensure that the zinc gluconate passes your stomach safely and unrestrained. With normal capsules, there is a high risk that food components or also beverages, such as black tea, bind zinc, and thus prevent its absorption in the body.
Take full effect of zinc with the zinconat 10 mg gastro-resistant capsules.
Natural protection for the contained zinc. Protection for the contained zinc
The zinconat 10 mg capsules give you pure herbal gastro-resistant capsules. For several years, research was conducted to develop a capsule that the gastric acid withstands withoutchemical addition. The used DrCaps ™ are completely enteric-free, without any additives or coating agents. They consist solely of vegetable cellulose and the dietary fiber gellan.
The used DrCaps ™ are therefore even award-winning! In 2012, DrCaps ™ became a winner of the Nutraceutical Business and Technology Award.
Thanks to the enteric liquid-resistant capsules, zinc is optimally protected within the zinconate capsules! In this way, the zinc gluconate is protected against the your stomach acid. This ensures that the zinc is not released in the stomach, since its intake in it would be easily inhibited by other food components. Such inhibitory foods are, for instance:
• Black tea or wine with tannins
• Wheat bran with fiber
• Radish, mustard, cabbage or cress with mustard oil glycosides
• Liver, mushrooms or shellfishes with calcium
• Cereals and legumes with phytic acid
• High doses of copper, iron or also cadmium
In addition, protect your stomach with the enteric-coated zinconate 10 mg capsules! Many preparations, without enteric liquid-resistant capsules, sometimes cause discomfort in the gastrointestinal tract, especially in sensitive individuals.
Free of impurities
100 % vegan and vegetarian
With the Zinkonat capsules you get 100% vegetarian and vegan capsules. That should be so because vegans and vegetarians can benefit from the intake.
The so-called phytic acid is contained in vegetable food in huge quantities. These acids in turn complex zinc and thus prevent the uptake of the trace element into the intestine. We are aware of that! Therefore, the Zinkonate capsules are designed to be absolutely suitable for both vegans and vegetarians. The capsules contain no animal ingredients. Cellulose is also used exclusively for the capsule shells, which vegans and vegetarians can eat without hesitation.
Zinc: A versatile help
Zinc is one of the most versatile minerals in our body, and therefore essential for many functions:
• Preservation of normal skin, hair and nails
• Protects the cells from oxidative stress
• Contributes to the maintenance of normal vision
• Function in cell division and DNA synthesis
• For normal physical defense
• Preservation of a normal testosterone level in the blood
• Preservation of normal bones
• Normal metabolism of macronutrients
• Supports the normal carbohydrate and fatty acid metabolism
• Plays a role in normal protein synthesis
• Contributes to normal fertility
• Supports the normal cognitive function
• Maintenance of normal acid-base metabolism
• For physically hardworking people
• Pregnant women
Already 1 capsule covers your daily requirement
The Zinkonat capsules are equally developed and portioned to cover your daily need in zinc with just one 10 mg capsule; according to the German Nutrition Society which recommends the consumption of exactly 10 mg of zinc per day.
In diseases, such as diabetes or infections and allergies, the zinc requirement may be partly higher than in healthy people. The same applies to athletes and physically hardworking people, as they lose over the sweat large amounts of the trace element.
