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%.*

A Fundamental Mineral for our Immune System

Unlike arginine, most people are familiar with the central role zinc plays in the immune system. This mineral affects virtually all aspects of our immune system, 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.
