What is Ionic Zinc?
The importance of zinc has been known throughout the world for generations. One of the first cultures to see the significance of using zinc was the Chinese. The Chinese knew of the benefits of zinc and used it for prostate problems many centuries before other countries ever addressed zinc's' benefits.
Zinc is very important to health. At least 160 different human enzymes rely on zinc in part of their composition and function. Zinc enzymes are involved in digestion, metabolism and tissue respiration, both DNA and RNA need zinc enzymes for proper functioning.
Medically, it's possible zinc is the most underrated and misunderstood of minerals, yet it is one of the most important elements in the human body. It is essential for so many different in the body. Its depletion can produce dangerous effects. In spite of this a majority of physicians do not test for it, when they do, often incorrect testing techniques are used by assessing blood samples instead of tissue samples such as hair.
Absorption is a vital factor. By looking at list of foods containing zinc it becomes obvious that there are not that many when compared with those containing iron and calcium, yet zinc is the key to many bodily functions and it's lack is a cornerstone which contributes to nutritional disorders.
It is interesting to look at how zinc is absorbed by the body because this will bring an understanding of how the body so readily becomes depleted of it.
At meal times the pancreas produces picolinic acid, this is due to the release of hydrochloric acid from the stomach. The picolinic acid then binds to the zinc and aids its absorption. Therefore zinc's absorption is dependent on a reasonable level of hydrochloric acid being present in the stomach. If this is at low levels, (from antacid or overzealous use of acid blocking agents), then zinc depletion is likely to occur.
Zinc is also needed for the synthesis of hormones serotonin, dopamine, melatonin, and noradrenaline. Therefore, low levels can result in decreased alertness, a lessened capacity for abstract thinking, lowered ability to perform repetitive and multi-task jobs, moodiness and memory failure.
Zinc’s vital functions
A co-factor in the production of collagen within the body and especially used by the B vitamins to ensure proper absorption.
Involved in the human immune system and is a vital catalyst in the metabolism of essential fatty acids, which are important for proper immune function
Is needed in the release of insulin by the pancreas and for the release of vitamin A from liver stores.
Plays an important part in the metabolism of the pituitary gland, the adrenal glands, the ovaries and the testes
Is vital for the production of male sperm and female ova
Necessary for a healthy liver metabolism and is needed by the fetus in order to grow properly
