Zinc

  • Zinc is an essential cofactor for hundreds of important ­enzymes, including those ­involved in growth, repro­duction, tissue repair, immune function, antioxidant protection, digestion, and vision, among others (Environ Health Perspect 1994;102:5-46).
  • Clinical studies have shown zinc supplements to be helpful for diverse conditions, such as maintaining clear, healthy skin (Acta Dermatovener [Stockholm] 1980; Suppl 89:87-93), supporting optimum function of male sperm (Annu Rev Nutr 1985;5:43-68), and ensuring optimum tissue repair after trauma (Lancet 1996;347:706-7).
  • Zinc supplements help protect the macula to ensure long-term maintenance of vision (Arch Ophthalmol 2001;119:1417-36).
  • Zinc supplementation may help children achieve optimal growth (Am J Clin Nutr 2002;75:1062-71).
  • Zinc picolinate provides a highly absorbable form of zinc, allowing reduced doses while maintaining effectiveness (Nutr Rev 1980;38:148-9).
