Zinc is a trace mineral that is important for healthy functioning of all organs. It is essential for more than 30 enzyme reactions that feed into a variety of homeostatic functions. Zinc is located at the active site of superoxide dismutase (SOD), a major protective antioxidant enzyme, and zinc dependent enzymes are involved in growth, immunity, and tissue renewal.
Contraindicated with use of aluminum containing drugs. Higher intakes of zinc may deplete body stores of copper.
As a dietary supplement, 1 capsule per day between meals, or as directed by a healthcare practitioner.
