Maintaining healthy levels of Zinc in our bodies is crucial to our growth, our immune systems and even to our intellectual capacity. However, Zinc has proven to be a tricky mineral for our body to ingest effectively. By chelating it with Picolinic acid, Swanson Zinc Picolinate guarantees far higher levels of absorption than of Zinc by itself.

What is Zinc Picolinate?

Swanson Zinc Picolinate is a compound of Zinc and Picolinic acid which aids and expedites the diffusion of Zinc into our systems. Zinc may be a trace element in our bodies but it is a vital one. Its role in the creation of over 300 enzymes in our bodies mean that we need it to repair our body tissue, for maintenance of our senses of smell and taste and vision and it even contributes to our rates of metabolism.

Because ingesting Zinc into our bodies requires it to pass through not just our intestinal membranes but also through our bloodstream and into each of our cells, it has, until now, proven one of the tougher mineral supplements for our bodies to ingest.

Swanson Zinc Picolinate is a compound designed to hurdle that very problem. In fact, In studies designed to test the efficacy of Zinc absorption by different methods, Swanson Zinc Picolinate proved to be up to five times more effective than that of other Zinc absorption methods such as Zinc Citrate or Zinc Gluconate.

What is Swanson Zinc Picolinate used for?
