Zinc for Immune Support
Zinc Picolinate from Allergy Research is a dietary supplement containing a trace mineral essential for good health, as it may help wounds heal and your immune system fight off bacteria and viruses.
Found in cells throughout your body, zinc is involved in more than 30 enzyme reactions in the body and is an essential metal cofactor for a kind of superoxide dismutase (SOD), a major class of antioxidant enzymes.
Its immune-enhancing properties include regulation of T lymphocytes, CD4 cells, natural killer cells, and interleukin-2. And zinc may also possess antiviral activity.
Formulations like Zinc Picolinate have been used since ancient Egyptian times to enhance wound healing. More recently, zinc has become popular as an aid to avoid the common cold.
Zinc benefits may also include help in managing such conditions as
- Skin conditions
- Gastric ulcers
- Attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD)
- Immune disorders
- Sickle cell anemia
- Leg ulcers
- Wilson's disease, or too much copper in body tissues
- Taste or smell disorders
Rare in North America, zinc deficiency can lead to slow growth in infants and children, delayed sexual development in adolescents, and impotence in men.
It can also cause hair loss, diarrhea, eye and skin sores, and loss of appetite.
