Quick Overview

    Product Description

    Because of zinc’s essential role in human nutrition and metabolism, there is concern regarding the absorption of zinc, both from dietary intake and nutritional supplements. While oral zinc supplementation is efficacious in most zinc deficiency conditions, not all zinc preparations have equal
    bioavailability. Acrodermatitis enteropathica (AE), a rare genetic disorder characterized by a severe zinc deficit, provides an excellent model for understanding zinc deficiency and absorption in humans. Patients with AE have a defect in tryptophan metabolism, which may predispose them
    to producing decreased levels of picolinic acid. Zinc picolinate appears to have the greatest efficacy in reversing the zinc deficiency of AE and is also absorbed to a higher degree in normal subjects than other zinc supplements.
