Immune System Support Formula*
Zinc Glycinate features the 100% fully reacted TRAACS™ zinc bisglycinate chelate by Albion Laboratories, Inc. Zinc is essential for the development and proper functioning of the reproductive organs, including healthy prostate function, and has been shown to support healthy immune system function.* Zinc also supports enzyme activity associated with tissue synthesis, energy metabolism, and bone mineralization.* Zinc Glycinate is readily bioavailable and easily absorbed as an intact chelate.* It is superior to other forms of zinc because it does not get ionized in the gut before it is absorbed.* Instead, it appears to be metabolized in the body right at the target tissue.* Deficiencies in zinc can lead to an impaired immune system, decreased glucose metabolism, hormonal imbalance and slower wound healing.*
Zinc glycinate is a compound of zinc and glycine — the smallest essential amino acid. Combining the two results in better absorption across the intestinal wall and into the bloodstream—partnering more effectively than any other amino acid or other material. Only then can zinc fulfill its vital contribution to the function of various body systems, including:
- Immune system
- Neurological system
- Cardiovascular system
- Reproductive system
- Digestive system
- Skin and bone formation
More is not always better. Higher dose supplements can lead to zinc dominance and copper deficiency. That’s why PLV’s Zinc Glycinate aims to replenish the body’s zinc stores with only 23 mg of highly absorbable elemental zinc per capsule. Adults can take two capsules initially to replenish and then dose down to just one capsule ongoing to maintain zinc levels.
