Jarrow Formulas Zinc Balance is a dietary supplement which contains two elements necessary for the functioning of the human body system: zinc (zinc monomethionine) and copper (copper gluconate). Both are important co-factors for many enzymes in the body system which catalyze redox reactions. The most important of them is the superoxide dismutase, which shows strong antioxidant potential. The product is designed to enrich the poor in these minerals diet and to make up of their deficiencies (provided there are any).
L-OptiZinc® is a unique zinc chelate containing an amino acid – L-methionine. The scientific studies have shown that L-OptiZinc® is better absorbed and that plasma levels are higher in comparison to other forms of zinc.
Zinc is an important mineral component involved in the regulation of many enzymes. It has antioxidant properties and supports the immune system. It is the most commonly used in order to improve and maintain optimal levels of testosterone.
Among people with zinc deficiencies and those who suffer from diabetes or impaired tissue sensitivity to insulin, the compensation of zinc levels can help to normalize the parameter of glucose metabolism and to improve insulin sensitivity.
The studies show that daily supplementation with zinc reduces the occurrence of colds. This fact, together with the earlier oxidative potential of this element, may contribute to the support of the immune system functions.
Zinc deficiencies are mainly related to the pathologies of cognitive processes (memory, mood) and impaired growth, occurring in youth. They may also cause a decrease in the expression of androgen receptors and testosterone synthesis. Both of these actions contribute to the reduction of the total action of testosterone in the human body system.
Some animal studies suggest that high doses of zinc can increase the concentration of testosterone. Among people with zinc deficiencies, the supplementation with relatively low doses seems to be able to increase the level of testosterone to the physiological level.
It has been also demonstrated that the zinc levels among people with acne are lower than among people without such problems. It is considered to be a therapeutic factor in this kind of problems, because it reduces the migration of skin immune cells and possibly reduces the impact of androgens on the skin.
Copper is one of the key and essential minerals which are present in traces in the human body system. It is present in many enzymes which are responsible for the synthesis of various tissues, for example collagen and elastin. It also shows an activity against free radicals. The studies show that it can help in the process of wound healing.
The main functions of copper in the human body system: helps to maintain the proper state of connective tissues affects the proper energetic metabolism. plays a role in the proper functioning of the nervous system helps to maintain the proper hair and skin pigmentation participates in the proper transport of iron in the body system takes part in the protection of cells from oxidative stress contributes to the proper functioning of the immune system
To sum it all up, Jarrow Formulas Zinc Balance is a product for all people who are vulnerable to zinc deficiency and symptoms related to it. The element is sweat away, so the supplementation is recommended for people who sweat intensively and for athletes who do not provide their body systems with the proper amount of zinc.
Another group exposed to zinc deficits may be vegans and vegetarians. People with diabetes (both type I and type II) seem to be more vulnerable to zinc deficiencies than healthy people and in this case the supplementation is also recommend in order to compensate these deficiencies.
Copper deficiency is a rare phenomenon, but also possible. The cases in which a copper deficiency can occur include patients with gastric bypass and chronic users of proton pump inhibitors (medicines used in the treatment of upper gastrointestinal disorders).
The recommended dose may be taken each day. People at risk of zinc deficiency should, after consultation with the doctor use higher doses. Please note that in the case of the supplementation of calcium, magnesium and iron, the bioavailability of zinc may be reduced.
