OmniVegan® Zinc 3
OmniVegan® Zinc 3
A combination of three readily absorbable organic zinc sources: L-pidolate, zinc bisglycinate and zinc citrate.
Zinc is important for a wide range of processes in the body, zinc is an essential mineral that forms in more than 300 enzymes.
It is also important for the immune system, the bones, the eyes, the skin, the hair, the nails and the hormone system.
OmniVegan® Zinc 3 is 100% vegan and is registered with The Vegan Society, England. Registration in this context is your guarantee for a 100% vegan product.
Recommended daily dose: 1 tablet.
Size: Available in pots with 120 tablets.
OmniVegan® Zinc 3 contains 20 mg zinc per tablet from 3 easily absorbable organic sources: L-pidolate, bisglycinate and citrate.
Immune system and antioxidant defence
Zinc helps the immune system to function normally. In cases of zinc deficiency several important functions of the immune system are inhibited – eg. the development of the immune system’s cells and antibodies.
This mineral is part of the body’s antioxidant defence which protects the body’s cells against oxidative stress. Our bodies are constantly exposed to free radicals which are extremely aggressive molecules that can cause oxidative damage to the cells in our body. The free radicals are formed during the body’s normal combustion processes, but also when exposed to for example, sunlight, cigarette smoke, air pollution and hard physical activity. In order to neutralise the free radicals and avoid oxidative damage we need a good and varied supply of antioxidants.
Zinc helps maintain normal bones. This is because it forms a structural part of the bones, while also supporting the formation of bone tissue by activating important bone-forming enzymes.
Eyes, skin, hair and nails
This mineral is part of several enzymes necessary for the conversion of vitamin A, which is crucial for the eye’s ability to see. It also helps to maintain normal skin, hair and nails.
Zinc contributes to normal fertility and reproduction. The formation of sperm cells is dependent on this mineral.
It also helps to maintain a normal testosterone level in the blood.
Also for vegetarians and vegans
OmniVegan® Zinc 3 is a vegan product and registered with The Vegan Society, England. Therefore the product can safely be taken by vegetarians and vegans.
Zinc L-pidolate is chosen as an organic zinc source OmniVegan® Zinc 3.
Pidolate – in this case Zinc-L-Pidolate – consists of elemental Zinc linked to organic L-Pidolate (Pyrrolidon Caboxyl Acid (PCS)) which is a naturally physiologically active substance that is actively involved in vital processes in body.
What is pidolat?
Pidolates are characterized in that they have a good absorption in the body, similar to other organic sources, such as amino acid chelates.
However, pidolates have the extra dimension that the ligand pidolates (from Latin: ligar = to bind) to which the elemental zinc is coupled, thereby forming an organic and highly bioavailable biomolecule, possessing unique physiological properties in itself, besides to act as a ligand for elementary minerals such as zinc.
What is zinc bisglycinate?
Zinc bisglycinate has shown a very effective absorption. Zinc connects to the amino acid glycine. Glycine is one of the body’s smallest amino acids, and its low molecular weight makes it particularly suitable for being used as an amino acid complex. Glycine has several important metabolic functions in the body and is included, for example in the formation of collagen, in the synthesis of creatine as well as as a neurotransmitter in the nervous system.
What is zinc citrate?
Zinc citrate is one of the richest organic-bound sources of zinc. Zinc connects to citric acid. Citric acid is part of Krebs’ cycle and contributes to cellular functioning and energy production. When coupled to zinc, the water solubility of the mineral increases, and thus also its bioavailability.
