    Zinc Picolinate 30 mg (180's) Details

    Zinc is essential for growth, immune function, testosterone metabolism, and numerous other functions in the body.* Zinc is involved in more than 200 enzymatic reactions and plays a key role in genetic expression, cell division, and growth.* Clinical studies demonstrate zinc supplementation can increase general wellness, and that it has a beneficial impact on connective tissue, as well as reproductive and eye health.* However, not all zinc supplements are absorbed efficiently by the body. Picolinic acid is a natural mineral chelator produced from the amino acid tryptophan in the liver and kidneys, and then transported to the pancreas. During digestion, the picolinic acid is secreted from the pancreas into the small intestine, where it binds to minerals, such as zinc, to facilitate the mineral's absorption.*

    Individuals susceptible to zinc deficiency include the elderly, the immuno-compromised, those on parenteral nutrition, burn victims, and athletes.* Adequate Zinc levels are needed to support the body's normal production of testosterone, a hormone essential for promoting lean muscle mass.

    I can't believe Dr. Ron would sell a product containing Silicon Dioxide (SAND). Magnesium Stearate and Silicon Dioxide are used for the benefit of the manufacturer, NOT the consumer.
