Zinc is an essential trace mineral required for optimum health. It is responsible for multiple metabolic processes including cellular function, sexual development, reproductive function, cognitive function, and immune system function. Zinc is also an essential component of many enzymes involved in the metabolism of proteins and nucleic acids.
Recent studies show that a deficiency in zinc leads to symptoms such as hair loss, lack of alertness, and a reduced sense of taste and smell. Zinc cannot be produced within the body therefore we must get it from our food or through supplementation. That being said, not all zinc supplements are equal. In fact, most Zinc supplements sold on the market are not readily absorbed or well tolerated.
Cymbiotika’s Zinc Complex is a blend of three forms of Zinc, all backed by clinical data providing superior absorption and utilization. We also added Copper and Selenium, two essential elements that work synergistically to support multiple functions in the body. Copper and Zinc work together in processes such as immune system function, nervous system function, and healthy metabolism. They act as antagonists; When levels of one decrease, the other increases. Additional studies indicate copper supplementation with Zinc helps balance the absorption of both nutrients. Cymbiotika is confident that our new mineral complex is the most advanced zinc, copper, selenium formula to date.
Zinc Picolinate: An acid form of zinc with high absorption rates through the intestinal membranes, bloodstream, and finally individual cells. Its effects can be noticed faster and for a longer period. This particular nutrient is needed by the body to maintain a healthy metabolism.
OptiZinc®: OptiZinc® offers benefits for dietary supplements and food and beverages. OptiZinc® is a 1:1 complex of zinc and methionine, an amino acid that is well-absorbed by the body. Compared to other forms of Zinc tested, Zinc mono-L-methionine has superior absorption, retention, and antioxidant, and cell protectant properties.
Sucrosomial® Zinc: Promotes immunity defense, enhancing healthy immune cell proliferation, activation, and function. Using enhanced absorption and bioavailability mineral technology, phospholipid bilayer micro-encapsulation technology protects minerals in the gastrointestinal lumen to increase dissolubility and easily cross membranes.
SelenoExcell® Selenium: This organic selenium supplement originates from a non-pathogenic, non-GMO Saccharomyces cerevisiae yeast strain. It creates a yeast supplement product that is the closest to food forms of selenium, similar to what is found in Brazil nuts, eggs, peas, poultry, and meats. The form of selenium in SelenoExcell® is what researchers call organic, meaning it is attached to several amino acids. This factor may make it more bioavailable than others.
Copper Sebacate: A salt form of copper. Copper is an essential trace mineral responsible for a variety of enzymatic reactions in the body.
Copper Gluconate: A salt form of copper from D-gluconic acid.
