Zinc Glycinate features the 100% fully reacted TRAACS® zinc bisglycinate chelate by Albion® Laboratories, Inc. Zinc is essential for the development and proper functioning of the reproductive organs, including healthy prostate function, and has been shown to support healthy immune system function.* Zinc also supports enzyme activity associated with tissue synthesis, energy metabolism, and bone mineralization.* Zinc Glycinate is readily bioavailable and easily absorbed as an intact chelate.* It is superior to other forms of zinc because it does not get ionized in the gut before it is absorbed.* Instead, it appears to be metabolized in the body right at the target tissue.* Deficiencies in zinc can lead to an impaired immune system, decreased glucose metabolism, hormonal imbalance and slower wound healing.*
