How Zinc Pro Works
Zinc Pro includes chelated zinc arginate and zinc glycinate for enhancing bioavailability and tolerability compared to other forms of supplemental zinc. Research suggests chelated zinc is more gentle on the GI tract and may even support intestinal permeability.4
What makes zinc such an important mineral is that it plays many roles throughout virtually every tissue in the body, ranging from the molecular formation of RNA, DNA, and proteins to mediating immune function to promoting reproductive health and fetal growth.
Recent evidence suggests that roughly 1 in every 5 people worldwide is at risk for inadequate zinc intake, which is a precipitous increase since 2005.5 While certain foods contain zinc, some people are unable to properly absorb it. In such instances, using Zinc Pro may help support adequate zinc status and reduce the risk of deficiency.
Zinc Pro Supplementation
Zinc Pro is designed to help you meet your daily zinc needs by providing highly absorbable zinc arginate and zinc glycinate. Adequate zinc intake is crucial for many biological processes, such as:
- Promoting healthy immune function
- Supporting healthy cellular metabolism
- Supporting DNA integrity
- Promoting reproductive function
- Supporting GI integrity and permeability
