Zinc - High Potency
100 Veggie Capsules • 40 mg
This product is a high potency combination of zinc, copper, and spinach formulated to support the immune system.

Zinc is an essential mineral that is a component of over 300 enzymes needed to repair wounds, maintain fertility in adults and growth in children, protein synthesis, help cells reproduce, preserve vision, boost immune function, and protect against free radicals, among many other functions. More than 50 years ago, 1934, zinc essentially was first suggested. Not until early 1960, however, was it known that low intake or low body storage of zinc can cause deficiency symptoms. In recent years, since the discovery that this mineral is becoming less available in the soil and thus in the food chain, zinc has been given more attention, and increased research has produced much more information. Zinc absorption may vary from about 20-40 percent of ingested zinc, depending mainly on body needs and stomach acid concentrations. Like iron, zinc from animal foods where it is bound with proteins has been shown to be better absorbed. When bound with the phytates or oxalates found in grains and vegetables, less zinc is absorbed. Calcium, phosphorous, copper, iron, lead, and cadmium all compete with zinc absorption.

Copper is an essential trace element present in the diet and in the organism.
It is needed to absorb and utilize iron. It is also part of the antioxidant enzyme, superoxide dismutase (SOD). This mineral is needed to make adenosine triphosphate (ATP), the energy the body runs on. The intake of safe and adequate amounts is important since it is considered toxic in large amounts. Copper has been added in a small amount since zinc reduces the body’s ability to utilize this essential mineral.

Spinach is widely regarded as a functional food due to its diverse nutritional composition which includes several vitamins (vitamins A, B, C, E), minerals (iron, potassium, magnesium, calcium, copper, manganese, and zinc), and phytochemicals that promotes health beyond basic nutrition.
