When choosing a zinc supplement it is important to consider how absorbable and bioavailable the zinc supplied is. Zinc Picolinate provides zinc chelated (joined) with picolinic acid to increase the absorbability of Zinc. Our body naturally uses picolinic acid to absorb and transport certain minerals. Zinc Picolinate also contains vitamin C to support immune system function.
Each Zinc Picolinate capsule delivers 15mg of zinc and 60mg of vitamin C.
Zinc is a crucially important mineral that’s involved in ALL areas of the body, including, cognitive (brain) function, immunity, hormones, bones and vision. It’s involved in over 300 reactions in the body!

- Zinc plays an active role in normal cell division, and is therefore important in wound healing.
- Hormones, fertility and reproduction will not work properly without zinc. The reproductive organs cannot grow and develop; DNA synthesis and the division of cells aren’t possible without zinc. Zinc is essential for normal testosterone levels in the blood.
- Zinc contributes to the normal maintenance of bones, hair, nails and skin – necessary to keep us in top shape on the outside and the inside!
- Zinc is involved in normal carbohydrate, protein and fat metabolism. It’s also crucial for the normal pH within the body, playing a role in the acid/alkaline balance.
