What is Zinc? Zinc is an incredibly important mineral and unfortunately one that many of us don’t get enough of, according to the latest UK National Diet and Nutrition Survey. This is partly because we can’t store it in our bodies so we need to have a regular intake, but many experts also believe that modern farming and food processing practices have led to reduced levels in our diet. Zinc’s proven health benefits include supporting immunity and thinking functions, as well as helping to keep our bones, eyes, skin, hair and nails in top condition. It also contributes to normal macronutrient metabolism and protein synthesis. What’s more, it’s a key player in fertility, especially for men as it helps maintain healthy blood levels of the hormone testosterone. To complement zinc, we’ve included the full daily nutritional requirement of vitamin C, which boosts immune health and acts as an antioxidant, keeping cell damage in check. Why is ours better? We use zinc citrate, which is easily absorbed, helping to maximise the benefits of this amazing nutrient. Plus, it’s all packed into a one-a-day, easy-to-swallow tablet. Who is this for? This vitamin C and zinc formulation is ideal for those who want to look after their immunity, fertility, bones and overall wellbeing in one vegan, easy-swallow daily tablet. It is also important for those following a vegetarian or vegan diet (although zinc is found in whole grain cereals, most of its food sources are meat, shellfish and dairy products). Interested in more? As well as zinc supplements, men can benefit from taking a saw palmetto supplement. Saw Palmetto Complete is an advanced formulation for men which combines saw palmetto fruit extract, cold-pressed pumpkin seed oil, evening primrose oil, tomato extract, selenium and zinc.
