Albion Chelated Zinc

Albion Chelated Zinc is absorbed intact and breaks apart in the intestinal cell for transport.

This chelate binds zinc to two organic glycine ligands, resulting in a low pH, highly stable structure that is easily absorbed. In a study comparing the oral bioavailability of zinc bisglycinate chelate to zinc gluconate, Albion’s chelated form increased absorption more than 43%. Other studies have shown the absorption of zinc bisglycinate chelate was also higher than zinc picolinate, zinc glycinate and zinc oxide, sometimes by as much as 300%.*

Health Benefits

Zinc is a trace mineral which is needed by more than 300 enzymes to repair the body and protect against immune invaders. It also helps synthesize proteins, helps cells reproduce, protects against natural aging, and helps maintain fertility in adults. Strenuous exercise both requires and depletes zinc stores, and low zinc levels in the muscles correlate with reduced endurance capacity.

When added to foods, beverages, and supplements, zinc can help support:

  • Healthy vision
  • Healthy growth
  • Sports recovery
  • Electrolyte balance
  • Healthy immune function
  • Normal inflammation response

A Fundamental Mineral for our Immune System

Zinc minerals affect virtually all aspects of our immune systems, from the nonspecific barrier functions of the passive immune system (skin, mucous membranes, etc.), to the specific lymphocytic functions of the active immune system. Zinc is needed for the development of neutrophils (a type of white blood cell) and other natural killer cells in the nonspecific immune defense, and also offers vital support for other specific immune defenses.
