Product Description

Liposomal Zinc 16oz

Description

Liposomal Zinc supports the replenishment of one of nature's most crucial minerals in a delicious and highly bioavailable form. Healthy and normal levels of Zinc support adaptive and innate immunity, DNA replication, lung function, and gastrointestinal health, metabolism, vision, and healthy aging.

Product Overview

Why Liposomal ZINC?

Living organisms cannot make the minerals that they need; they obtain them from plants and animal sources in their diets. Minerals are also present in drinking water; however, the types of minerals and the amounts vary with the water source and the geographical location.

For humans macrominerals are those that are required in amounts greater than 100 milligrams per day, while the microminerals are needed in amounts less than 100 milligrams per day. Zinc is a micromineral with an RDA of 8-11 mg per day for adults. The zinc that is present in meat, eggs and seafood has relatively high bioavailability, while the zinc in whole grains and legumes is less bioavailable due to their high phytate content. Phytate inhibits the absorption of zinc. Overall, your body absorbs about 20-40% of dietary zinc.

While zinc deficiency is not common in developed countries, there may be times when it is desirable to maximize cellular zinc levels. The ideal is to raise zinc levels intracellularly without excessively raising serum zinc levels. DesBio Liposomal Zinc provides a moderate dose of a highly absorbable liposomal zinc gluconate to safely augment cellular zinc levels.

Long term consumption of zinc in excess of the tolerable upper intake level of 40 mg/day for adults can interfere with copper bioavailability. When supplemented in very high amounts zinc can actually weaken the functioning of the immune system.

THE NEED FOR LIPOSOMAL ZINC SUPPLEMENTATION

Zinc is found in every cell in the body, and many aspects of cellular metabolism are zinc dependent. Zinc is necessary for reproduction, growth and development, neurotransmission, vision, and immune function. Zinc mediates many specific and non-specific immunological functions. One important function is immune modulation - the tamping down of the inflammatory immune response when it creates high levels of inflammatory mediators. In addition, zinc is believed to inhibit viral binding to ACE2 receptors on cell membranes where viruses latch on as a first step to invading cells. It also inhibits the functioning of viral replication enzymes, such as retroviral RNA replicase.

In situations where a higher level of intracellular zinc is desirable it is important to realize that only a tiny fraction of total intracellular zinc, called "labile zinc," is loosely bound to proteins and easily interchangeable to modulate the activity of numerous signaling and metabolic pathways. In vitro research has shown that dietary phenols act as zinc ionophores, i.e., they transport zinc cations through the plasma membrane. triggering the raising of labile zinc levels in cells.

Margolin et al. state that: Increasing intracellular Zn+2 concentration via zinc ionophores can efficiently impair intracellular replication of a variety of RNA viruses ..."

DesBio's Liposomal Zinc Bisglycinate will enable your patients to obtain the maximum value from their zinc supplement. The zinc ions are transported by tiny phospholipid bubbles to convey sensitive nutrients more efficiently than oral delivery.
