Why take Zinc Supplements?
Zinc is considered an 'essential' trace mineral; this is because small amounts of Zinc are essential for our health. Our Zinc tablets provide 15mg, 150% of your daily NRV/RDA. It uses a highly bio available source of zinc in the form of Zinc Citrate.
Zinc plays an essential role in numerous biomechanical pathways; organ systems, central nervous system and skeletal system. It plays vital roles in hormone production, growth & repair and digestion. It is involved in over 300 enzymes in the body and makes up part of 3000 different proteins in the body. Muscles (60%) and bones (30%) contain 90% of the body’s zinc.
Those involved in intense exercise require higher levels of Zinc. Therefore, it is important adequate levels of Zinc are obtained for optimum athletic performance and strength development. Its role in hormone production allows a stable release of testosterone, growth hormone and insulin-like growth factor (IGF-1). This will aid performance, strength adaptations and recovery.
Zinc is considered to be lacking in modern diets, which often results in deficiencies. It is thought that between 20-30% of the population are zinc deficient.
