Zinc Amino Acid Chelate To Improve the Body’s Zinc Profile and Enjoy Better Health:
Zinc is necessary for the body to maintain proper physiological function.* The body needs at least 20 milligrams per day, but the problem with zinc is its rate of absorption. The rate of absorption for zinc largely depends on the form that it exists in. Elemental zinc, for instance, is poorly absorbed by the gut thus it needs to be attached to a chelating agent. This is the reason why Solaray’s chelated zinc supplement is very important.
• Higher absorption compared with elemental zinc
• Better overall health
• Contains 50 mg of zinc amino acid chelate
• Also contains pumpkin seeds
• Products are constantly screened for quality
What Is Chelated Zinc?:
Chelated zinc is divided into two categories: organic acids and amino acids. Amino acids that are attached to zinc include monomethionine, methionine, and aspartic acid. Many supplemental zinc contain an organic acid. However, those with amino acids are also beneficial because they contain essential amino acids to support different organs and functions in the body. What makes chelated zinc more effective than elemental zinc is that it is easily absorbed in the stomach.
The Health Benefits Of Chelated Zinc:
The National Institute of Health recommends that an average adult should consume at the most 13 milligrams of zinc while large individuals need to take more. It is important for people not to skimp on zinc. Zinc is beneficial to the immune system.* There are many reasons why one should consider supplementing with zinc.
Made From Organic Raw Materials:
To make the Zinc amino acid chelate, Solaray only uses high quality organic raw materials. The amino acids are derived from whole rice concentrate instead of soy, milk protein or yeast. Studies noted that the special rice concentrate used in this supplement is seven times higher than the amino acids contained in ordinary rice. Moreover, the amino acid profile of this whole rice concentrate is higher than that found in soy or yeast. Thus, the chelating agents obtained is higher than what is conventional.
Zinc Amino Acid Chelate And More:
This supplement contains 50 milligrams of zinc amino acid chelate. This is more than enough of what the body’s daily needs. Thus, it is important to take only one (1) vegetable capsule of this supplement. Aside from zinc amino acid chelate, this supplement also contains 50 milligrams of pumpkin seeds. Pumpkin seed is a good source of zinc organic acid chelate thus it also improves the Zinc profile of the body.
Solaray takes pride in making supplements that come with the highest quality. Solaray uses quality control standards in all aspects during the product development. This means that the raw materials are identified and authenticated by laboratory analysts to ensure their potency and efficacy. Moreover, the supplements are always screened for the presence of microbes, pathogens, and environmental toxins. The company rejects herbs and batches of supplements that are found to have contaminants.
