Zinc Balance 15mg 100 capsules - synergistic combination of zinc and copper | Jarrow Formulas
Jarrow Formulas Zinc Balance is a synergistic combination of Zinc L-Methionine and Copper Gluconate in a 15:1 ratio of zinc to copper. Zinc L-Methionine resists absorption interference from fiber and phytic acid.
The mineral zinc supports skeletal and immune health. Both zinc and copper are needed to support super oxide dismutase (SOD) activity, which plays a critical role in the body’s endogenous antioxidant network.
Zinc Balance is most useful for those looking to preserve health and the body's intrinsic antioxidant production.
Zinc Balance is specially designed to preserve the copper-zinc ratio
Zinc Balance resists interference in absorption by phytic acid and fibers
Zinc L-Monomethionine promotes skeletal and immune health and is involved in super oxide dismutase activity.
Copper gluconate is involved in super oxide dismutase activity (SOD) and plays a role in bone health
Zinc Balance® is a synergistic combination of zinc L-monomethionine and copper gluconate in a 15:1 ratio. Zinc Lmonomethionine resists absorption interference from fiber and phytic acid. L-OptiZinc® is standardized to 20% zinc and consists of zinc bound to the purified “L” form of methionine.
Copper is included primarily to balance any potential interference with normal uptake due to supplemental zinc.
Orally, zinc is used for management and prevention of zinc deficiency. The mineral zinc promotes skeletal, skin, and immune health. Both zinc and copper are needed to promote super oxide dismutase (SOD) activity, which plays a critical role in the body’s endogenous antioxidant network.
Copper supplements are used to prevent or support the treatment of copper deficiency. The body needs copper for normal growth and health and a deficiency may lead to anemia and osteoporosis. The balance of zinc and copper is critical.
Mechanisms of action
Zinc is widely used in the body as a component of enzymes involved in digestion, metabolism, respiration and immune function. It is a component of insulin, it influences the absorption and the activation of vitamin A, it is crucial to reproductive health and bone growth, etc., but its most important role in the body is in cell repair and growth. Proper growth, prostate health, a healthy immune system, and normal healing, all require optimized zinc status. When zinc is deficient, taste sensitivity is also impaired.
Some researchers believe that zinc may be important for learning. More specifically, zinc plays an important role in immune function and inflammatory response as well as in the areas of skeletal, neurological and endocrine health.
Some research indicates that L-methionine is the best absorbed of the amino acids and therefore a superior carrier for uptake of zinc into the body. A daily intake of zinc is required to maintain a steady state because the body has no specialized zinc storage system.
Safety, adverse reactions and interactions
Safe when used as directed. Zinc supplements may interact with cisplatin, penicillamine, quinolone and tetracycline antibiotics. In addition, captopril, cholestyramine, corticosteroids, deferoxamine, disulfiram, EDTA and EDTA derviatives, estrogens, ethambutol, H2-blockers, phenytoin, proton pump inhibitors, thiazide diuretics, and valproic acid may increase the need for zinc. .
Some supplements are suitable for both men and women of all ages as well as children. But other supplements are specifically targeted to the aging woman or man. Another supplement is especially suitable for athletes, regardless of gender.
