Physiological Function
• Supports the replenishment of normal healthy zinc levels.
• Zinc blocks the intestinal absorption of copper from the diet.
• Zinc is involved in numerous aspects of cellular metabolism. It is required for the catalytic activity of approximately 100 enzymes and it plays a role in immune function, protein synthesis, wound healing, DNA synthesis, and cell division.

Absorption and Tissue Deposition
Most exogenous zinc is absorbed transcellularly in the small intestine, where the jejunum exhibits the greatest transport rate. Absorption kinetics are saturable, and efficiency of intestinal zinc absorption increases with transit time and zinc deficiency. Over 85 percent of total body zinc is incorporated into skeletal muscle and bone. Plasma zinc, bound primarily to albumin at a concentration of approximately 10-15 umol/L, represents only 0.1% of total body levels.

Formulating Techniques
Good dissolution profile, contains minimal excipients, contains no excipients that will cause allergic reactions.

Side Effects
Zinc is considered to be relatively nontoxic, particularly if taken orally. However, manifestations of overt toxicity symptoms (nausea, vomiting, epigastric pain, lethargy, and fatigue) will occur with extremely high zinc intakes. Even lower levels of zinc supplementation, closer in amount to the Recommended Dietary Allowance (RDA) (100-300 mg Zn/d vs. an RDA of 15 mg Zn/d), have been suggested to interfere with the utilization of copper and iron and to adversely affect HDL cholesterol concentrations. Individuals using zinc supplements should be aware of the possible complications attendant to their use. Do not exceed recommended dose.

Keep out of reach of children. Store in a cool, dry place.
