Why is Pico-Zinc® One of the Best Zinc Supplements?
Pico Zinc® follows the tradition of our ReMag®, ReMyte®, ReCalcia®, and Pico Silver™ as a stabilized pico-meter-ion of zinc. The source of Pico Zinc® is pure zinc lactate. Its ions are smaller in diameter than the body’s cell mineral ion channels which makes it easier to digest and absorb than a pill or powder*
What is Zinc and What Does It Do?
Zinc is a mineral. It’s called an ‘essential trace element because very small amounts of zinc are essential to human health that people need to stay healthy*. Nearly 100 different enzymes rely on zinc for their activity*. Zinc is found in cells throughout the body. The body needs zinc to make proteins and DNA, the genetic material in all cells*. During pregnancy, a growing fetus needs zinc to grow and develop properly*. Zinc is important for proper senses of taste and smell*.
Since the body does not store excess zinc, it must be consumed regularly as part of the diet. Common dietary sources of zinc include red meat, poultry, and fish. But not everyone obtains enough through their diet. Perhaps one of the biggest benefits of taking zinc supplements is the fact they can help you get enough zinc on a daily basis. Taking zinc supplements is very common and generally recognized as safe.
