Uses & Benefits
Natural Factors Zinc Bisglycinate is an easy-to-absorb zinc supplement that is gentle on the stomach, supporting the maintenance of good health. Zinc is well known for supporting and protecting the immune system, but it is also an essential trace mineral needed for numerous other functions throughout the body.
Zinc helps in connective tissue formation and supports the maintenance of healthy skin and membranes, such as in wound healing. It also helps maintain healthy hair, nails, and bones. Zinc is needed to maintain the body’s ability to metabolize nutrients and is a constituent of over 200 enzymes involved in digestion and metabolism. This includes the enzymes with roles in detoxification, bone metabolism, protein digestion, and energy production. In addition, it is a component of insulin and is needed to break down alcohol.
Zinc Bisglycinate comes in one-per-day vegetarian capsules and is available in two potencies: 25 mg or 50 mg of elemental zinc. In this highly absorbable, gentle bisglycinate form, zinc is bound to two glycine molecules, allowing it to be absorbed without stomach acidity or reactions with other minerals and food components in the digestive tract. It is a great choice for people with low stomach acid levels or absorption issues that increase the risk of zinc insufficiency.
