Zinc is a vital trace mineral that is critical to the performance of multiple human health functions. Zinc works to maintain gene expression and cellular metabolism. It is essential to a diverse range of physiological processes, such as tissue repair, immune building, vision and neuro transmission, and insulin signaling.
However, when it comes to the incidence of deficiency, zinc is second only to iron worldwide. Considering its extensive role in immune function, even a minor deficiency of zinc can have adverse health effects. This is where zinc supplementation in the form of reacted zinc can be very valuable.
American Integrative Pharmacy (AIP), led by Dr. Neema Yazdanpanah, provides safe and proven compounding medications to patients in Long Beach, Torrance, Los Angeles, South Bay Orange County, Southern California areas, and online nationwide.
Why Daily Intake of Zinc is Important?
Zinc is fundamental to the activities of more than a hundred different enzymes and supports tissue growth, protein synthesis, immunity process, cell division, and DNA synthesis. At the time of pregnancy as well as during infancy and childhood, the human body requires zinc for growth and development.
Zinc is also useful in promoting the functioning of the sense of smell and taste. Everyone needs a daily intake of zinc to maintain its correct levels in the body because human body does not have a specialized system for zinc storage.
Reacted Zinc from Ortho Molecular
American Integrative Pharmacy offers Reacted Zinc from Ortho Molecular Products. Reacted Zinc includes highly absorbed zinc, which is essential for a variety of body protocols. Reacted Zinc contains 54 mg of highly absorbed zinc, which is formulated ideally using zinc glycinate (the amino acid chelate form of zinc) for improved absorption, maximum utilization, and GI tract comfort.
Using the right form of zinc supplementation is critical to maintain the right levels of the mineral within the body and for proper compliance to supplement regimen. Correct supplementation boosts immunity and increases the antioxidant reserves that are designed to protect human body against free radical damage.
Clinical applications of Reacted Zinc from Ortho Molecular include:
- High concentration zinc supplement to promote immune function
- Provides highly absorbed zinc to support a range of body protocols
Bioavailability is a critically important requirement. Reacted Zinc supplementation helps improve the zinc balance in the body. If inferior mineral supplements are used, they will have little effect because they contain poor absorbed, low quality rock salt minerals. Reacted Zinc, on the other hand, is formulated with the advanced form of amino acid chelate (zinc glycinate).
Zinc glycinate does not ionize in the gut. As a result, it is not affected by the dietary factors and delivers high rate absorption compared to any other supplement that is formulated with different forms of zinc salt. Research studies have demonstrated that the absorption of mineral chelates is superior to other mineral forms as follows:
- Chelated zinc delivers 230% higher absorption than zinc sulfate
- Chelated zinc delivers 390% higher absorption than zinc oxide
- Chelated Zinc provides stronger protection against interfering dietary factors
