Zinc, 30 mg 100 capsules
- Supports thyroid function*
- Antioxidant properties*
- Supports learning and memory capacity*
Zinc is a trace mineral needed in only small amounts, but it participates in many crucial life sustaining functions. These small amounts help to regulate growth, development, neurological functions, genetic expression, blood sugar levels, and much more.
The antioxidant properties support immunity response and help our cells to fight the damaging effects of free radicals, which can alter cell structure and contributes to aging and disease formation.*
Zinc plays some key roles in the way our bodies use and respond to energy. Our metabolic rate, or the rate at which we create and use energy, needs zinc to regulate these processes. These functions are also influenced by the output of hormones from the thyroid gland. Incidentally, during times of zinc deficiency, the hormone output from the thyroid decreases, further hampering metabolism.*
Additionally, zinc aids in the stabilization of blood sugar levels. Insufficient zinc decreases insulin response and hinders the hormone’s ability to usher glucose out of the blood stream, thus throwing off the balance.*
Brain function relies on the adequate availability of zinc. Proper neurological function requires the delicate transmission and receipt of nerve impulses. Zinc is present in the part of the nerve cells that facilitates communication between neurons. There is a high zinc concentration in the neurons of the hippocampus, which are associated with learning and memory capabilities. Zinc deficiency has been looked at as a contributing source to the broken communication causing impaired learning and memory.*
