Zinc is an essential mineral that must be obtained daily from the diet. Found in almost every cell in the body, zinc is crucial for healthy metabolism as it activates more than 100 enzymes needed for biochemical reactions, including those that assist with protein synthesis and wound healing. For optimal assimilation, zinc in this supplement is combined with the amino acid glycine forming zinc glycinate, a well-absorbed “chelated” form of this essential mineral.

Some of the key functions zinc serves in the body include:

  • ‍Supports a healthy immune system
  • Required for wound healing
  • Helps maintain sense of taste and smell
  • Needed for DNA synthesis
  • Supports normal growth and development
