Zinc is a trace mineral that is a component in over 200 enzymes and is involved in more than 30 enzyme reactions in the body. It is an essential metal cofactor for one kind of superoxide dismutase (SOD), a major class of antioxidant enzymes.
Zinc supports the body’s immune function and natural defenses and is essential for healthy skin. It is needed for many hormones and supports a healthy reproductive system in both men and women. Zinc is necessary for smell, taste, and vision health.
Zinc citrate is well-tolerated by the body’s digestive tract and is extremely well absorbed, making it the easiest form of the mineral for the body to utilize.
