Zinc Supreme™ offers chelated minerals by Albion Advanced Nutrition, the leader in mineral technology. These ideal chelates with a 2:1 molar ratio of 2 amino acids of glycine chemically bonded in liquid to 1 mineral ion of zinc or molybdenum for optimal absorption. These minerals are combined with other nutrients like vitamins B6 and taurine to provide superior results.

Why do we love this nutrient? 

Immune Health: Zinc is involved in virtually every aspect of immunity. Zinc has antiviral activity against several viruses that cause the common cold. A clinical study found that using zinc lozenges reduced cold symptoms from an average of seven days to four days. Supplementation with zinc stimulates white blood cell production—a key component infighting tumours–and supports the production of neutrophils, T lymphocytes, and natural tumour-fighting (NK) cells. Zinc is also required for producing thymulin, the major thymus hormone. A reduction of this thymus hormone leads to impaired immune function

Vision, Taste, and Smell: Zinc is essential for the maintenance of vision, taste, and smell; zinc deficiency often results in night blindness. Poor zinc status is prevalent among the elderly and loss of taste and smell is a common problem for this age group. Reduced dietary intake of red meat and dairy products leads to decreased zinc, calcium, vitamin D and folate in elderly Canadian women. Supplementation with zinc can improve taste and smell in some of these individuals.

Elevated Copper: Copper elevation can result from a zinc deficiency. e body needs a 15:1 balance of zinc to copper for proper function; loss of one mineral can lead to relative excess in the other. Poor diet, vegetarianism, and smoking can create zinc deficiency and subsequent copper excess. Ceruloplasmin is a copper-binding protein manufactured by the adrenal glands and is critical for copper utilization. Poor adrenal health reduces ceruloplasmin levels causing unusable copper build-up or copper toxicity. Taking birth control pills, hormone replacement therapy, and drinking tap water from copper-lined pipes can also lead to elevated copper and decreased zinc. It is an elevation in copper that can lead to migraine headaches, damage to the eyes and possibly macular degeneration, preeclampsia, breast cancer, lymphoma, depression, anxiety, schizophrenia, and chronic leukemia. Other symptoms of elevated copper are acne, adrenal insufficiency, anemia, PMS, mind racing, candida overgrowth, osteoarthritis, and viral infections

Stress: Stress lowers zinc body stores and leaves one vulnerable to immune weakness, fertility problems, acne, depression and other symptoms of elevated copper, potential prostate problems and Alzheimer's disease. The Canadian Mental Health Association reports rising levels of stress – even as much as a 30% increase in stress perceived among Canadians from 2008-2009.
