Vitacost Zinc Gluconate / Picolinate -- 50 mg - 180 Capsules

A combination of two forms of zinc that are easily absorbed.* Helps maintain healthy reproductive and immune systems.*. What is zinc? Zinc is a trace mineral essential for proper growth development and reproduction as well as numerous body processes from eye health to immune function to regulation of appetite taste and smell.* It’s also required for the proper function of approximately 300 enzymes. Zinc is necessary for the formation of superoxide dismutase (SOD) which is an important free radical scavenger in the body.* It’s also an antioxidant meaning it helps protect healthy cells from the potentially damaging effects of free radicals.*. How does zinc support health? Supports healthy protein and DNA synthesis*. Supports prostate tissue health sperm motility and testosterone metabolism*. Involved in healthy insulin production*. Zinc deficiency in the elderly can often accompany age-related immune decline*. Why choose Vitacost Zinc Gluconate/Picolinate? Combines two highly absorbable forms of zinc*. Supplies 50 mg per single-capsule serving. Contains 180 servings per bottle. Better value than similar products on the market. About Vitacost.

Maybe it's me...

"...but this particular formula of zinc supplement did not absorb into my body very well. My Spectracell results showed that I had a zinc insufficiency, in spite of my taking Vitacost Zinc for at least a year. It may work well for someone else--just not for me, so my doctor suggested I try another brand. I'm giving the product three stars, though, because it may very well be a great product, it didn't make me nauseous, and it's very affordable. Just be aware that not all zinc supplements are created equal..."
