Chela Zinc by Olimp Labs is a dietary supplement which contains the highest-quality zinc in form of amino acid chelate, which is characterised by high bioavailability and absorption in the human digestive system. The product was granted with the Albion® recommendation, which guarantees the high quality of the mineral and its use of the body system.
Zinc – is a mineral considered to be necessary for keeping the body system healthy. This is because it is involved in numerous basic physiological processes and metabolic transformations. It is present in approximately 200 enzymes which play different biomechanical functions in the body system. The minimum demand for zinc amounts for 5 mg, however the recommended daily dose of the mineral is 15–20 mg.
Zinc deficiencies are the most frequent in people suffering from failures of kidneys and liver, abusing alcohol, elderly people, children and adolescents. The most common symptoms of zinc deficiency include reduced appetite, skin dryness (especially in the area of the mouth), low libido, low immunity, hair loss, fragile nails, problems with concentration and memory, problems with glucose balance and psoriasis-like lesions.
Support for the immune system
Zinc is a microelement important for the proper functioning of the immune system and the proper immune response. It is involved in the production of lymphocytes T, whose role is to protect the body system from bacterial and viral infections, parasites and other pathogens. It also restores the hormonal balance in people with autoimmune diseases.
Zinc for fertility
Zinc plays an important role in the maintenance of the proper sexual functions, particularly in men. The highest concentration of zinc in the human body system are reported in semen, sex organs and the prostate, which is why fertility problems are observed mainly in men whose level of zinc in blood is quite low. The microelement is involved in the production of testosterone which is responsible for good mood, vitality, high libido and the proper spermatogenesis in men. Zinc is also applied in case of low sperm mobility and activity as well as in case of period regulation in women.
Regulation of glucose management
Zinc shows positive influence on pancreatic beta cells, as it regulates and normalises insulin secretion by producing complexes which allow for its storage and release into cells. Zinc deficiency can seriously impair glucose-insulin balance. Low zinc level contributes both to type 1 diabetes (insulin-dependent) and type 2 diabetes.
Influence on the brain
Clinical studies on people suffering form neurodegenerative diseases (such as Alzheimer's and Parkinson’s disease) have demonstrated that low zinc level is strongly connected with low activity of neurons and impaired brain functions. It affects also good mood and well-being as well as reduces the risk of depression and anxiety.
Other health-promoting properties
Zinc regulates production and concentration of vitamin A in tissues, which affects the health of eyeballs and improves seeing at night. It is involved in bones mineralisation and regeneration of muscles and joints. Moreover, it has positive influence in case of all skin diseases, i.a. acne rosacea, psoriasis, atopic eczema or allergic lesions. It accelerates also healing of wounds and deep skin burns. It prevents fragility of hair and nails. It positively affects the functioning of intestines, heart and liver. Zinc is also important for pregnant women, as it prevents premature birth and reduces the risk of defects of the immune and nervous systems. Together with magnesium and vitamin B6, it supports regeneration of the body system and promotes long, efficient sleep.
To sum it all up, Chela Zinc by Olimp Labs is a dietary supplement which contains highly bioavailable and easily absorbable zinc which is immediately used by the human body system. The product is especially recommended in periods of frequent colds and in case of fertility problems in men.
Remember that using the preparation along with calcium, magnesium and iron supplements may negatively influence its assimilability, as these ingredients compete with one another for the assimilation place. The proposed dose may be used every day as a preventative measure, while the people prone to the risk of zinc deficits should take higher doses after consulting a specialist.
