Ortho Molecular - Reacted Zinc 60 CT
ORTHO MOLECULAR PRODUCTS REACTED ZINC
Reacted Zinc provides 50 mg of highly absorbed zinc, ideally formulated using the amino acid chelate form of zinc (zinc bisglycinate) for enhanced absorption, optimal utilization and gastrointestinal comfort. Supplementing the right form of zinc is key to maintaining healthy levels within the body and compliance to a supplement regimen. Zinc plays a crucial role in immune function.
Zinc is an essential trace mineral important to many functions of human health. Zinc is critical to a diverse group of physiological processes, such as immune function. It is second only to iron in worldwide incidence of deficiency, impacting 2 billion people in developing nations. Due to the wide range of functions regulated by zinc, deficiency, or even marginal deficiency, can have health implications.
Daily intake of zinc is necessary to maintain adequate levels within the body because the body has no specialized zinc storage system.1
The importance of bioavailability is obvious. If consuming a zinc supplement has little effect on improving the body’s zinc balance, there is no reason to ingest it. Signs of inferior mineral supplements include the use of cheap, poorly absorbed, rock- salt minerals. Reacted Zinc is formulated with the superior amino acid chelate form, zinc bisglycinate, which does not ionize in the gut and therefore is not impacted by dietary factors and is absorbed at a higher rate than those formulated with zinc salt forms (See Figure 1).
Mild to moderate zinc deficiency impacts immune function by slowing down the activity of macrophages, neutrophils, natural killer cells, and complement activity.2,3 Individuals with low zinc levels have shown below- normal immune activity that can be corrected by zinc supplementation.3-4 Optimizing zinc levels supports immune function.5-8
