Zinc supplement – 110 capsules
Zinc is one of the most important mineral in the human body .It stimulates the activity of over a 300 enzymes and is present in every tissue and is directly needed for cell division. The benefits on the immune function are already well known but it’s also really important for the proper function of red blood cells. Zinc is a powerful antioxidant and is directly involved in proper endocrine function and maintenance of ideal hormonal levels. It is closely involved in the actions of insulin and IGF-1, influences the absorption and the activation of vitamin A but arguably most important role in the body is in cell repair and growth. A slight deficiency in Zinc can have disastrous effect on the body, it will affect virility in both men and women, decrease resistance to oxidative stress and accelerate cellular aging.
This form of zinc is one of the most readily available form of Zinc . It is combined with the amino acid Methionine , who has really good antioxidant properties due to it’s sulphur atom. This combination will also resist interference from fiber and phytates that could impair zinc absorption.
The Zinc-Glycine combination is the best form for bioavailability.
Copper is a trace element present in all tissues and is required for cellular respiration, neurotransmitter biosynthesis, pigment formation, and connective tissue strength. . Adequate copper levels are essential for the growth of new blood vessels, wound healing, and recovering from heart attacks and strokes.Copper is a cofactor for numerous enzymes and plays an important role in central nervous system development; low concentrations of copper may result in incomplete development. Copper and Zinc need to be in balance to have their most beneficial effect.
Selenium ( Selenomethionine )
Selenium , with zinc and copper , is involved in cellular respiration, cellular utilization of oxygen, DNA and RNA reproduction, maintenance of cell membrane integrity, and sequestration of free radicals. Copper, zinc, and selenium are also involved in destruction of free radicals. It is also really important for the proper function of the immune system.
Biotin ( formerly Vitamin B7 )
This vitamin is quite important in the regulation of the immune function . It’s also vital for many metabolic functions , is part in the regulation of blood glucose , helps convert food into energy , helps reduces surplus fat , required for growth , maintenance and repair of tissues and is essential for the normal metabolism of fat , carbohydrates and protein.
