What is Zinc?
An essential mineral required by every cell in the body, zinc is concentrated in the muscles, bones, skin, kidneys, liver, pancreas, eyes, and, in men, the prostate. Because your body does not produce zinc, it depends on external sources for its supply. It is a key component to supporting a healthy immune function yet a surprising number of Americans don’t get enough in their daily diet.*
Zinc and copper are considered essential trace minerals. Our Zinc is formulated with copper because it is important to take extra copper when using zinc for longer than a month, because zinc may interfere with copper absorption. Our Zinc is also chelated for easy absorption in the body.*
