Zinc is essential for normal growth and immune system function, for normal testosterone metabolism, as a cofactor for the antioxidant enzyme superoxide dismutase, and for many other functions in the body.* Zinc is involved in more than 200 enzyme processes and plays a key role in genetic expression, cell division, and growth.*

Zinc deficiency is associated with adverse impacts on a number of structures and functions of the body.* Individuals susceptible to zinc deficiency include the elderly, the immuno-compromised, those on parenteral nutrition, and burn victims.

Clinical studies demonstrate that zinc supplementation can increase general wellness, as well as having particular beneficial impacts on connective tissue, reproductive health, and eye health.*

Because of zinc's essential role in human nutrition and metabolism, zinc’s absorbability, whether from dietary intake or nutritional supplementation, is important. Although dietary zinc intake is effective in most situations, not all zinc nutritional supplements are of equal absorbability.  Picolinic acid is a natural mineral chelator produced in the body – it is produced from the amino acid tryptophan in the liver and kidneys and is transported to the pancreas. During digestion, picolinic acid is secreted from the pancreas into the small intestine, where it binds to minerals to facilitate their absorption.* The picolinic acid chelated with zinc in Double Strength Zinc Picolinate serves the same purpose.*
