Zinc


Zinc is an essential trace mineral important to many functions of human health. It plays a role in maintaining cellular metabolism and gene expression, as well as a number of physiological processes including immune function, hormone balance, tissue repair, vision and neuro-transmission. Because the body has no specialized way to store zinc, it is important to maintain consistent intake through supplementation. This highly concentrated and absorbable formula is ideal for boosting immune function and much more.

Zinc is one of the most critical trace minerals for maintaining optimal health and function in the body, yet it is second only to iron in worldwide incidence of deficiency. In addition, the body has no specialized zinc storage system, making it extremely important to maintain adequate levels in the body through proper diet and supplementation (1).

Zinc is also fundamental to the activity of over 100 enzymes and supports immune function, protein synthesis, tissue growth, DNA synthesis and cell division (2-6). Zinc also helps tissue repair and is important for adequate functioning of the senses of taste and smell.

Our Zinc is highly-absorbable and ideally formulated using an amino acid chelate form of zinc (zinc glycinate) for enhanced absorption, optimal utilization and gastrointestinal comfort. Supplementing the right form of zinc is key to maintaining healthy levels within the body and compliance to a supplement regimen. Zinc plays a crucial role in boosting immune function, maintaining healthy tissue growth, and increasing the antioxidant reserves that protect the body from free radical damage.

POTENTIAL SIGNS OF ZINC DEFICIENCY

  • Hair loss
  • Fatigue
  • Low immunity
  • Poor concentration or memory
  • Digestive issues
  • Hormonal imbalances
  • Change in taste, smell or appetite
  • Slowed ability to heal
  • Aging skin
  • Poor muscle tone

OTHER CLINICAL USES FOR ZINC

Immune Function

Zinc plays a key role in speeding up the activity of macrophages, neutrophils and natural killer cells which are all complementary activities when it comes to immune function (7). Keeping zinc at optimal levels in the body is important when it comes to a healthy immune system response.

Tissue Growth

Zinc plays a role in maintaining the integrity of skin and mucosal membranes (7). Using zinc has been shown to boost the thickness and vitality of the skin (8).

Eye Health

As we age, free radicals can impact in the retina, causing a normal decline in visual acuity. By slowing down free radicals, zinc has been shown to support the retina in order to help maintain our vision (9,10).

This highly concentrated and absorbable formula is a superior formulation, safe for daily use.

Family First

Every product on this website was formulated with the mindset that my family and I would be using each nutritional supplement.

When you go into a product formulation knowing that your own family and children will use these products it ensures there will never be any compromise…

Plus, I want only the best for my online community and private practice clients. And, since people come to me for results after failing many times in the past, I have to know that every one of these products are truly the best of the best and will help people on their healing journey…

 

Functional Medicine Formulations

It’s important to understand that not all nutritional supplements are created equal.

For example, in a Functional Medicine practice only methylated or highly bio-available vitamins and minerals will be used in order to make it easy for the body to utilize.

Not only do these formula get better results, but they do not build up as toxins in the body or simply get excreted in the urine like most cheaper forms… 

 

Zero Compromise Policy

I made a promise to myself when I first started formulating the Equilibrium Nutrition line that I would not compromise on quality…

Even if a product cost me a few more dollars, I would not take any shortcuts in order to make a product for less.

This has enabled Equilibrium to set itself apart even in the Functional Medicine community as a leader in the best ingredients used.

 

GMP Certified

Besides never compromising on using the highest quality ingredients available when formulating our nutritional supplements, I make sure that each batch is 3rd Party tested for contaminants like:

  • Heavy metals
  • Mold
  • Bacteria
  • Impurities
  • Standard dosages

This then allows me to be confident when consuming these products myself and knowing that the dosages are what is stated on the bottle.

Again, this leads to better user results and happier customers and wellness clients!

 

Consistency & Freshness

Another way in which the Equilibrium Nutrition supplement line sets itself apart as the leader in the industry is by always producing fresh orders every couple of months.

Our products do not sit in warehouses for over a year…

Instead we maintain freshness with smaller continuous batch orders along with climate controlled fulfillment centers.

This guarantees purity, freshness, and taste.

This is a difference you can both see and taste with every bottle!

At Equilibrium Nutrition we strive to provide the fastest and most convenient shipping available!
