What is Zinc Glycinate?
Zinc is a mineral co-factor in hundreds of enzymatic reactions related to protein and carbohydrate metabolism, RNA/DNA synthesis and intercellular signalling. Zinc is essential to the normal function of many organs and systems within the body; supporting healthy immune, skeletal, neurological, and endocrine functions as well as a healthy prostate. Dietary bioavailability of zinc is relatively poor, so NOW® Zinc Glycinate is chelated to improve absorption and bioavailability and offered in an easy-to-swallow softgel.
Zinc is an important mineral for human health and is widely found in multivitamins and immune support supplements due its importance for overall health. It’s found in a variety of foods, but most vegetables and fruits are not good sources, so vegetarians and vegans in particular are at risk for zinc deficiency.
