ORGANIKA - Chelated Zinc - 45  Tablet(s) - NPN : 80005302

Hydrolyzed vegetable protein-bound zinc.  Zinc is an essential trace mineral with many important roles in the body, such as ensuring normal functioning of the immune cells. Elemental zinc on its own is poorly absorbed in the gut and inadequate amounts can compromise immune function. Organika’s Chelated Zinc offers a potent yet well-tolerated dose of this vital mineral to help the body fend off infection without stomach discomfort.

Features
Zinc is an essential trace mineral for human health. It plays an important role in various body functions, such as:

Immune function
The metabolism of proteins, carbohydrates and fats
The digestion of nutrients
Connective tissue formation
Wound healing

For the immune system in particular, zinc is vital - a lack of zinc can affect the normal functioning of immune cells. The immune system is complex and encompasses various different types of cells that work together to eliminate pathogens. Zinc is necessary for cell differentiation, allowing stem cells to become specialized immune cells.

While zinc is found in food sources, like meat and seafood, zinc deficiency can be a concern to certain groups, including those following a vegan or vegetarian diet, individuals with chronic diseases and the elderly. Signs of deficiency to watch out for include:
  • Impaired taste
  • Loss of appetite
  • Hair loss
  • Impaired wound healing
  • Immune disfunction
