OmniVegan® Zinc 3 contains 20 mg zinc per tablet from 3 easily absorbable organic sources: L-pidolate, bisglycinate and citrate.
What is zinc L-pidolate?
Pidolates are characterized in that they have a good bioavailability in the body, like other organic sources, such as. amino acid chelates. Pidolate - in this case Zinc-L-Pidolate - consists of elemental zinc linked to organic L-Pidolate (Pyrrolidon Caboxyl Acid (PCS)), which is a natural, physiologically active substance that is actively involved in vital processes in the body.
What is zinc bisglycinate?
Zinc bisglycinate has shown a very effective absorption. Zinc connects to the amino acid glycine. Glycine is one of the body’s smallest amino acids, and its low molecular weight makes it particularly suitable for being used as an amino acid complex. Glycine has several important metabolic functions in the body and is included, for example. in the formation of collagen, in the synthesis of creatine as well as as a neurotransmitter in the nervous system.
What is zinc citrate?
Zinc citrate is one of the richest organic-bound sources of zinc. Zinc connects to citric acid. Citric acid is part of Krebs’ cycle and contributes to cellular functioning and energy production. When coupled to zinc, the water solubility of the mineral increases, and thus also its bioavailability.
What are the benefits of zinc?
Immune system and antioxidant defense
Zinc helps the immune system to function normally. In cases of zinc deficiency several important functions of the immune system are inhibited - eg. the development of the immune system's cells and antibodies. This mineral is part of the body's antioxidant defense which protects the body's cells against oxidative stress. Our bodies are constantly exposed to free radicals which are extremely aggressive molecules that can cause oxidative damage to the cells in our body. The free radicals are formed during the body's normal combustion processes, but also when exposed to for example, sunlight, cigarette smoke, air pollution and hard physical activity. In order to neutralize the free radicals and avoid oxidative damage we need a good and varied supply of antioxidants.
Zinc helps maintain normal bones. This is because it forms a structural part of the bones, while also supporting the formation of bone tissue by activating important bone-forming enzymes.
Eyes, skin, hair and nails
This mineral is part of several enzymes necessary for the conversion of vitamin A, which is crucial for the eye’s ability to see. It also helps to maintain normal skin, hair and nails.
Zinc contributes to normal fertility and reproduction. The formation of sperm cells is dependent on this mineral. It also helps to maintain a normal testosterone level in the blood.
