The Importance of Zinc
Zinc is an essential trace mineral which plays a major role in immune function, creation of DNA, cell growth and processing the nutrients in our food.
The body does not produce or store zinc on its own; as such, it must be obtained from
our diet or supplementation.
There are several forms of zinc and zinc picolinate is one of the most readily absorbable.
Zinc for Prostate Health
Over the past decade, scientific research has increasingly highlighted the important role that zinc can play in the maintenance of prostate health; both in terms of protecting cellular DNA from oxidative damage and improving the strength and stability of individual prostate cells. This is unsurprising given that the male prostate gland contains and uses more zinc than any other tissue.
Who is it for?
Zinc picolinate is ideal for people who cannot get their daily requirement of zinc from food. Meat is a good source of zinc and protein helps the body to absorb zinc, so vegetarians, vegans and people on restrictive diets may benefit from a zinc supplement. Zinc deficiency can also be a problem in older people and people with gut problems as they may have problems absorbing the nutrients from their food.
