Zinc is an essential trace element and is an important role in reproduction, maintaining immune function, and healthy skin and growth. Cells and tissues in our body are threatened continuously by damage caused by toxic free radicals, by chemical reactions, and by toxic agents in the environment. Free radicals, once formed, are capable of disrupting metabolic activity and cell structure. When this occurs, additional free radicals are produced which, in turn, can result in more extensive damage to cells and tissues. Adding Zinc Picolinate daily will support immune function, reduce the effects of oxidative stress and promote optimal health.* One bottle contains 100, 50 mg Capsules.
