Zinc is found in almost every cell of our body and is a component of 200 or more enzymes. In fact, it participates in more enzymatic reactions than any other metal. The average human body contains 1.4 to 2.5 g of zinc, which is stored by 65% in muscles, red and white blood cells. High concentrations of zinc are found in bones, skin, kidneys, liver, pancreas, retina and prostate.
Immune Enhancement – Zinc is involved in almost every function of the immune system. It contributes significantly to the production of serum thymoline (hormone of the thyroid gland). As we age, thymoline levels decrease. The reduction of these hormones results in the weakening of the immune system.
Antibiotic action – Zinc, like vitamin C, has a direct antibiotic action. This action also includes protection against the common cold. According to clinical trials, taking a zinc supplement in lozenge form resulted in a 7-day reduction in disease symptoms.
Anti- inflammatory – Zinc has a strong antioxidant effect, contributing significantly to the formation of the powerful antioxidant superoxide dismutase (SOD).
Male Sexual Function – Zinc is involved in almost every function of the male reproductive system, such as hormone metabolism, synthesis, production and motility of sperm.
Acne – According to a wealth of research and clinical trials, zinc shows results similar to those of tetracycline in the treatment of superficial and deeper acne. It is necessary for the efficient release and use of vitamin A by the liver. Vitamin A is a nutrient extremely beneficial in cases of acne treatment.
Alzheimer's disease - Zinc deficiency is one of the most common nutrient deficiencies in the elderly. In fact, it is an important factor in the development of Alzheimer's disease. A significant lack of zinc in the human body results in the destruction of nerve cells and the dysfunction of the entire nervous system. In people with Alzheimer's, zinc levels in the brain and cerebrospinal fluid are extremely low.
The role of copper
Copper is contained in this formulation because zinc is likely to neutralize copper levels in the body if the required proportions of the two components (almost 10:1) are not met. Relative or absolute copper deficiency and increased zinc ratio have been shown to result in increased blood cholesterol, damage to the myocardium and arteries, and increased mortality rates.
Copper also participates in the formation of superoxide dismutase (SOD) along with zinc. At the same time, the lack of copper causes iron deficiency anemia, as copper is necessary for the absorption and use of iron by the body. Also, copper is an important element in activating an enzyme, lysyl oxidase, which is essential in the formation of elastin and collagen, elements of vital importance for the health of hair, skin, bones, blood vessels and joints.
The role of vitamin A
Vitamin A is added to the recipe in order to strengthen the synergy-interaction of the elements and to stimulate the immune system, vision and skin health.
