Thorne Research Zinc Citrate Product Information
Zinc may be essential for growth, immune system function, testosterone metabolism, as a cofactor for the antioxidant enzyme superoxide dismutase, and for many other functions in the body.* Zinc is involved in the functioning of over 200 enzymes and plays a potential role in genetic expression, cell division, and growth.*
Zinc deficiency has been associated with adverse impacts on a number of structures and functions of the body. Individuals susceptible to zinc deficiency include the elderly, the immuno-compromised, those on parenteral nutrition, and burn victims.*
Low-molecular-weight organic acids, such as citrate, have a positive effect on zinc absorption. Certain dietary factors, such as phytic acid found in grains, can interfere with the body's absorption of minerals.*
