Zinc and copper are considered essential trace minerals. Our Zinc 15mg is formulated with copper because it is important to take additional copper when using zinc for longer than a month because zinc may interfere with copper absorption. copper imbalances may lead to anemia and various other problems.

The zinc in this formula is chelated and easy for the body to absorb because we utilize zinc from zinc arginate, zinc histidinate and zinc glycinate. The copper comes from copper lysinate and copper glycinate.

Our Zinc 15mg is available in 60 and 120 count vegetarian capsules.

Zinc is considered an essential trace mineral which participates in more than 300 enzymatic functions in the body. Contributing in all major biochemical pathways and physiological processes, zinc's roles include maintenance of genetic material as well as cell division. Zinc is primarily stored in muscle, bones, and skin, with high concentrations in the retina of the eye, liver, kidneys, pancreas, and prostate gland in men. Every cell in the body needs zinc; hundreds of body processes rely upon it. Zinc is needed for normal growth and development. It has been shown to help regulate a wide variety of immune system. Studies indicate that Zinc may help to control blood sugar levels. In a small study conducted on children with insulin-dependent diabetes mellitus, zinc was found to have a positive effect on some symptoms. Additional studies show that zinc may be an important component of skin health. Zinc also has antioxidant properties, and is important to proper maintenance of Vitamin E levels in the blood. It also improves the activity of vitamin A. Moreover, it is a constituent of the powerful antioxidant superoxide dismutase (SOD). The body does not manufacture zinc so it is necessary to obtain through diet or supplementation. One of the first signs of zinc deficiency is a lost of taste and smell, elderly people and vegetarians have a greater risk of deficiency.
