Zinc is the second most important trace element in the human body (after iron). Zinc is contained in all cells, especially in the cells of the eyes, liver, brain, muscles and genitals (in men - in the prostate gland).
It is interesting to know that 5,000 years ago, the Egyptians used zinc ointment for quick healing of wounds, and about 100 years ago, scientists discovered that both plants and people need this element. Experiments were also conducted on rats and studies showed that taking zinc accelerates the healing of wounds and burns.
Zinc is a very important component of our enzymes, bones, tissues and skin. It is present in every cell of our body. More than 70 proteins contain zinc.
With a deficiency of this trace element, immunity decreases, nails become brittle, white dots appear on the nails, dry skin, hair falls out, the skin does not recover well, visual acuity is lost, and fatigue increases. The lack of this trace element of beauty and health is most often experienced by people who are on diets, vegetarians (because zinc is poorly absorbed from plant foods), athletes, pregnant women, people who take drugs that impair the absorption of zinc. Zinc deficiency is also felt by people who who suffer from chronic diseases of the gastrointestinal tract, liver and thyroid gland disorders, people who drink alcohol.
Zinc plays a special role during sports. This is determined by the ability of enzymes, which include zinc, to cleanse the body of harmful oxidized metabolic products. The daily dosage of zinc for athletes depends on the degree and period of stress. During exercise, athletes lose twice as much zinc as during rest days, and these reserves must be replenished to ensure maximum antioxidant protection of the body.
Zinc affects the growth of children, because the lack of zinc in a child slows down the growth process. It's all about the ability of zinc to increase the level of growth hormones. Therefore, children are often prescribed food with a high zinc content.
Zinc for pregnant women Zinc is extremely important for the well-being of pregnant women and for the normal development of the child in the womb, because it takes part in the formation of the sky, eyes, heart, bones, lungs, nervous system, genitourinary system. Zinc also prevents bleeding.
In order to prevent zinc deficiency, the American brand Now foods has developed a special supplement with this important trace element Zinc Picolinate Veg Capsules in the form of vegetarian capsules, which is excellent for vegans, and you should also pay attention to the very important advantage that zinc is presented in the supplement as much as possible bioavailable form of picolinate.
Each capsule contains 50 mg of zinc picolinate. What is zinc picolinate?
It is zinc bound to picolinic acid, which aids in the absorption of minerals, so zinc picolinate is much better absorbed than other zinc supplements. Let's find out what picolinic acid is.
Picolinic acid is a natural mineral chelator produced by our body, which is made from the amino acid tryptophan in the liver and kidneys.
During food digestion, picolinic acid is released from the pancreas into the large intestine, where it attaches to mineral elements, improving their digestibility.
It is also important to know that zinc picolinate is absorbed in conditions of reduced acidity, and usually acidity decreases after 40 years.
