Swanson Zinc Orotate is a dietary supplement containing zinc bound with orotic acid. Zinc is an important element regulating the functioning of over 300 enzymes in the organism.

What makes Swanson Zinc Orotate stand out among other supplements containing the element is its high bioavailability. The combination of zinc with orotic acid makes the microelement even 20% more assimilable than other forms.

Zinc – an essential mineral found in all tissues, organs and bodily fluids. It participates in over 300 enzymatic reactions, including the metabolism of nutrients, the synthesis of nucleic acids, and cell differentiation.

The human organism contains about 2-4 grams of zinc distributed all over the body. Its highest concentration can be observed in the brain, muscles, bones, kidneys and liver, as well as in the prostate gland and some parts of the eye.

Considerable amounts of zinc are found naturally in red meat, seafood, dairy products, nuts, and cocoa. It can also be found in spinach, broccoli and beans; however, it is worth remembering that zinc is absorbed much better from sources of animal origin.

Deficiencies of the element in the diet can lead to deterioration of immune system function, low energy levels, disorders in the senses of taste and smell, worse appetite, deteriorated cognitive functions, and more difficult wound healing.

Orotates are mineral salts of orotic acid, a substance found naturally in the organism. They participate in the system of transporting electrolyte carriers, which distribute minerals all over the body. Orotates also display affinity to specific cell systems and organs from which the minerals bound with them are released.

Great support for the immune system
Zinc is crucial for maintaining normal immunity and the functioning of innate immunity, as well as neutrophils and NK cells (natural killers). Zinc deficiency reduces the activity of the thymus, and long-lasting deficiency might even lead to atrophy. An insufficient amount of the element in the organism also has a negative effect on the growth and activity of T and B lymphocytes. Research confirms that regular supplementation with zinc can prevent common cold and make recovery faster.

Moreover, supplementation with zinc reduces inflammation markers, such as the C-reactive protein (CRP), interleukin-6 (IL-6), and, most important of all, the nuclear transcription factor NF-κB, which is the most important inflammation-inducing factor in the organism.

Protection against free radicals
Zinc has a positive effect on the reduction of free radical levels and DNA damage, as it is part of the enzyme copper-zinc superoxide dismutase (Cu/ZnSOD). Zinc supplementation reduces the amount of reactive oxygen species, which translates into increased stability of cell structures and their higher ability to regenerate. That can be related with the positive effect of the element on the process of wound healing.

Improved cognitive functions
Zinc participates in the process of signal transmission between neurons and modulates synaptic activity and neuroplasticity. People with low levels of the element are susceptible to deteriorated memory function and the development of neurodegenerative diseases. Proper zinc levels also reduce the symptoms of depression, and a study noted an increase of the brain-derived neurotrophic factor (BDNF), which is responsible for neuron development.

Higher testosterone levels in men
Zinc is able to increase the level of free testosterone in the male circulatory system, as it can catalyse the enzyme 17-beta reductase, responsible for the transformation of androstenedione into testosterone. Moreover, zinc deficiencies are connected with a reduction of the activity of luteinising hormone (LH), which stimulates steroidogenesis in the gonads.

Zinc deficiency can lead to disorders in the functioning of the gonads, including sperm production. Its supplementation, on the other hand, can have a beneficial effect on the quality of semen and male fertility.

Stabilised glucose levels
The preparation has a positive effect on insulin and glucose management, especially in overweight people. A positive correlation has been demonstrated of supplementation with zinc and insulin resistance, consisting in an increase of insulin binding with its receptor. Zinc is crucial for normal insulin secretion and can protect the organism from the development of diabetes by reducing blood glucose levels.

Healthy cardiovascular system
Zinc helps to improve the lipid profile. It reduces the level of low-density lipoproteins (LDL) and total cholesterol as well as inhibits lipid peroxidation. It also reduces the risk of platelet aggregation and has a positive effect on the process of coagulation. Research suggests a correlation between low zinc levels and the risk of atherosclerosis.

Improved condition of the skin and nails
Zinc is also positive for the regeneration of skin and nail cells, ensuring their healthy and rejuvenated appearance. Because of its ability to reduce inflammation and antioxidant potential, it protects the skin against toxins from the outside environment. Moreover, the element can boost hair growth and increase its volume.

To sum up, Swanson Zinc Orotate is a highly assimilable form of zinc ensuring the proper functioning of the entire organism. The essential element supports the functioning of the immune system, has a positive effect on the mood and cognitive functions, increases testosterone levels in men, and enhances the appearance of the skin. The easy-to-swallow veggie capsules cover almost 100% of the daily zinc requirement.
