Maintaining a healthy immune system is best achieved with the powerful mineral zinc, but long-term use often depletes the body's natural copper levels. Balanced Zinc is a unique formulation for robust immunity, tissue development, and repair that includes important co-factors such as copper that allow for long-term use.
Added co-factors: copper, Vitamin C, and B6
Vitamin C enhances the immune-boosting properties of Zinc
Easy way to boost your immune system
- Suitable for long-term daily use
Zinc is an important mineral when it comes to boosting the immune system, but supplementation can often be tricky. Zinc competes with copper for absorption in the body, therefore adding too much zinc without copper can leave the body deficient in one or the other. By adding copper to this formulation, Balanced Zinc helps ensure the body receives adequate supplementation of both key minerals. The immune-boosting properties are bolstered by the addition of vitamin C, a powerful antioxidant that helps protect the body.
Zinc is needed for a wide range of functions within the body. It plays a key role in immunity, supporting the body against harmful invaders, DNA synthesis, reproduction, bone formation, growth, and wound healing. Zinc has also been studied for the role it plays in cognitive function.
Several studies have shown that zinc supports a positive mood. The addition of Vitamin C and B6 provide antioxidant support and create a more balanced and powerful immune system booster. Zinc is a constituent of over two dozen enzymes involved in digestion and metabolism, including healthy storage and metabolism of carbohydrates. It is also related to the normal absorption and actions of the B vitamin family.
