Zinc is essential for growth, immune system function, testosterone
metabolism, as a cofactor for the antioxidant enzyme superoxide
dismutase, and for many other functions in the body. Zinc is involved
in the functioning of over 200 enzymes and plays a key role in genetic
expression, cell division, and growth.

Zinc deficiency has been
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 zinc supplementation can
increase general wellness, and that it has a beneficial impact on
connective tissue as well as reproductive health and eye health.

Because
of zinc's essential role in human nutrition and metabolism, there is
much interest in the absorption of zinc from both dietary intake and
dietary supplements. While dietary zinc intake is effective in most
situations, not all zinc dietary supplements have equal bioavailability.

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, it is secreted from the
pancreas into the small intestine, where it binds to minerals to
facilitate their absorption.

Because picolinic acid facilitates
the absorption of minerals, Zinc Picolinate is absorbed to a higher
degree than is other zinc supplements.
