Highly Bioavailable Chelated Zinc
Zinc Pro is a highly bioavailable zinc supplement featuring chelated zinc arginate and zinc glycinate. The chelation process bonds zinc with amino acids to enhance absorption and make it easier on the gastrointestinal (GI) tract than other forms of supplemental zinc, like zinc oxide.
Zinc is an essential mineral, often present in metalloenzymes, that plays key roles in many bodily tissues, working to modify gene expression, stabilize cell membranes, support immune function, assist reproductive health and more.
Furthermore, chelated zinc is well-documented in scientific research to support GI integrity and intestinal permeability.
Read on to learn how the chelated zinc in Zinc Pro works and its advantages over other forms of supplemental zinc.
How Zinc Pro Works
Zinc Pro includes chelated zinc alginate and zinc glycinate for enhancing bioavailability and tolerability compared to other forms of supplemental zinc. Research suggests chelated zinc is more gentle on the GI tract and may even support intestinal permeability.
What makes zinc such an important mineral is that it plays many roles throughout virtually every tissue in the body, ranging from the molecular formation of RNA, DNA, and proteins to mediating immune function to promoting reproductive health and fetal growth.
Recent evidence suggests that roughly 1 in every 5 people worldwide is at risk for inadequate zinc intake, which is a precipitous increase since 2005.5 While certain foods contain zinc, some people are unable to properly absorb it. In such instances, using Zinc Pro may help support adequate zinc status and reduce the risk of deficiency.
