Zinc Glycinate features 100% fully reacted TRAACS zinc bisglycinate chelate by Albion Laboratories. Zinc is essential for the development and proper functioning of the reproductive organs, healthy prostate function, and supports healthy immune function. Zinc also supports enzyme activity associated with tissue synthesis, energy metabolism, and bone mineralization. Zinc glycinate is readily bioavailable and easily absorbed as an intact chelate. It appears superior to other forms of zinc because it does not get ionized in the gut before it is absorbed. Deficiencies in zinc can lead to an impaired immune system, decreased glucose metabolism, hormonal imbalance, and slower wound healing.
