Beskrivning av artikel

Ionic zinc   delivers zinc in a form that passes more directly to where it can be absorbed   by the intestine. The zinc is easily broken down in the stomach so is more   readily available. This supplement provides a low dose of zinc, so it is   suitable for gradual addition to the diet.

Zinc is found   throughout the body. It's involved in a considerable number of processes and   functions:


  • the metabolism   of proteins, carbohydrates, lipids and vitamin A
  •   keeping the immune system working
  • protein   manufacture and the maintenance of healthy skin, hair and nails
  •   muscle growth and reproductive health
  •   DNA synthesis and cell division
  • as an   antioxidant, protecting cells from oxidative damage
  •   maintaining healthy bones
  •   supporting cognitive performance
  •   normal vision

The body can regulate its zinc levels so that within   certain limits any excess is discarded. A supplement is only required in   cases of deficiency, or in cases of clinical need for a specific targeted   application of zinc.

The daily requirement of zinc is readily available   in a balanced diet, including vegetarian diets if they include wholegrains   and pulses (such as beans and lentils). Deficiency should only arise through   lack of sufficient sources in the diet, or through problems with the body's   capacity to absorb and use zinc.

The recommended daily intake of zinc is 10mg.

One dose provides 1.4mg active zinc. This is a   fraction of the RDA but allows for measured supplementation of zinc when   other dietary sources are taken into consideration.

Excessive zinc consumption can have toxic effects,   or could lead to anaemia. Do not take more than 25mg total zinc intake per   day unless under specific medical advice. In case of doses above 50mg per   day, about 5mg per day of additional copper should also be taken.
