Zinc is a mineral co-factor in hundreds of enzymatic reactions related to protein and carbohydrate metabolism, RNA/DNA synthesis and intercellular signaling. Zinc is essential to the normal function of many organs and systems within the body; supporting healthy immune, skeletal, neurological, and endocrine functions.
Dietary bioavailability of zinc is relatively poor, so NOW® Zinc Glycinate (also known as Bisglycinate) is chelated to improve absorption and bioavailability. NOW uniquely offers Zinc Glycinate in a softgel capsule with Pumpkin Seed Oil as a healthy synergist.

Zinc (from Zinc Glycinate)(Amino Acid Chelate)(TRAACS®)(Albion®) 30 mg
