Zinc Picolinate

Zinc is a trace element that is necessary for a healthy immune system. A lack of zinc can make a person more susceptible to disease and illness. It is responsible for a number of functions in the human body, and it helps stimulate the activity of at least 100 different enzymes.


Human Nutrition

Only a small intake of zinc is necessary to reap the benefits. Zinc is vital for a healthy immune system,  correctly synthesizing DNA, promoting healthy growth during childhood, and healing wounds. According to the European Journal of Immunology, the human body needs zinc to activate T lymphocytes (T cells). 

Animal Nutrition

In animal nutrition after iron, zinc is the most plentiful essential trace mineral in your  dog’s body. It’s a powerful antioxidant and aids in various metabolic processes in the body. Zinc works by itself and with other nutrients, such as copper, B-complex vitamins,  vitamin A, calcium, and phosphorous, to support the body and aid in different essential  bodily functions.

Common symptoms of zinc deficiency can include: chronic digestive issues, dermatitis, under or over functioning immune systems, malfunctioning thyroid  gland, major organ failure seizures.

Immunity Support

For nearly a century, zinc has been known as an essential nutrient for both plants and animals.  Zinc deficiency causes marked reduction in the activation of many immune system enzymes and  transcription factor of T helper cells.
