Zinc is a trace mineral that is found in virtually every cell of the body and is a component in over 200 enzymes. Zinc supports our body’s natural defenses and is essential for healthy skin. It is needed for many hormones and supports a healthy reproductive system, hence it is widely used to maintain normal prostate function.* Zinc is necessary for our sense of smell, taste and vision. Zinc Citrate is an excellent form of zinc as citrates are extremely well absorbed and well-tolerated by the body.
