Zinc Picolinate 60 Vegetarian Caps
Allergy research group Zinc Picolinate
Zinc is a trace mineral that is involved in more than 30 enzyme reactions in the body, and is an essential metal cofactor for one kind of superoxide dismutase (SOD), a major class of antioxidant enzymes.
Suggested use: As a dietary supplement, 1 capsule daily with a meal, or as directed by a healthcare practitioner.
Other ingredients: Hydroxypropyl methylcellulose, microcrystalline cellulose, silicon dioxide, magnesium stearate.
This nutrient is of the highest quality and purity obtainable, free of all common allergens (antigens), and does not contain preservatives, diluents, or artificial additives.
Storage: Keep in a cool, dry place, tightly capped.
GAPS Comments: Zinc has a complex absorption mechanism and needs good stomach acid in order to absorb it. GAPs Patients almost without exception have low stamach acid so this needs to be supplemented with Betaine HCl or HCl and Pepsin. Sauerkraut with every main meal will also help aid in digestion.
