Zinc (62 products)

 

Zinc is an essential mineral found naturally in foods and available as a dietary Zinc supplement. Zinc aids in the maintenance of good health and wellbeing as it is found in every cell of the body and is involved in many enzymatic reactions.

 

Adequate levels of Zinc are essential in the proper functioning of the immune system. It is also important in wound healing and the maintenance of healthy skin.

 

Zinc also plays an essential role in male reproductive health and in the production of healthy sperm.

 

Zinc supports normal growth and development during pregnancy, childhood, and adolescence and is required for proper sense of taste and smell.

 

Natural Zinc is widely distributed in foods such as meat, fish, poultry, cereals and dairy foods.

 

In general, Zinc absorption from a diet high in animal protein will be greater than from a diet rich in plant derived proteins. The requirement for dietary Zinc may be as much as 50% greater for vegetarians.

 

Phytates—which are present in whole-grain breads, cereals, legumes, and some fruits and vegetable, bind Zinc and inhibit its absorption. Thus, the bioavailability of Zinc from grains and plant foods is lower than that from animal foods.

 

Zinc deficiency can be easily diagnosed with a Zinc tally test, hair mineral analysis or blood test. Zinc can be taken in the form of Zinc tablets, Zinc capsules,Zinc powder or liquid Zinc supplement. The best Zinc supplement to take should contain either a Zinc amino acid chelate, Zinc citrate, Zinc glycinate, Zinc picolinate or Zinc gluconate if in lozenge form.

 

Mr Vitamins stocks the very best Zinc supplements Australia has to offer.

 

Note: Zinc picolinate may need to be purchased instore via a consultation with a Naturopath.
