Zinc plays an important role in supporting the body’s defense system, and is associated with the normal absorption and actions of the B vitamins. Zinc tablets supply zinc monomethionine, a chemically defined, patented organic compound which provides zinc and the amino acid methionine in a 1:1 ratio. Each tablet contains 20 mg of elemental zinc, exclusively in the form of zinc monomethionine.

20 mg As Monomethionine
Zinc tablets supply zinc monomethionine, a chemically
defined, patented organic compound which provides zinc
and the amino acid methionine in a 1:1 ratio. Each tablet
contains 20 mg of elemental zinc, exclusively in the form
of zinc monomethionine. This form of zinc has been
shown in numerous studies to be better absorbed, retained
longer and be more effective than other forms of zinc.
Zinc is an essential trace element involved in most major
metabolic pathways. General signs of human zinc
deficiency indicate that zinc has important functions in
maintaining immune function, reproduction, healthy skin,
and growth. Numerous studies support the fundamental
role of zinc in normal immune response in humans.
Immune cells must be able to rapidly divide in order to
respond to daily challenges. Like all rapidly dividing cells,
immune cells depend on adequate amounts of dietary zinc.
As a cofactor of the antioxidant enzyme superoxide
dismutase (SOD), zinc can be considered an antioxidant
nutrient. Zinc supplementation has been shown to increase
the antioxidant activity of SOD, and provide increased
free radical protection. Zinc deficiency is associated with
increased oxidative damage.
Absorption of toxic heavy metals, especially cadmium and
lead, is lower in individuals with high zinc status
compared to those with low zinc status. The body pool of
readily available zinc appears to be small, which renders
the body susceptible to deficiency and therefore
dependent on a steady dietary supply of bioavailable zinc.
While typical zinc intake in U.S. adults are between 10
and 15 mg per day, which approach the RDA, intakes in
the elderly are often low. Pregnant women are also at risk
for zinc deficiency, since they have a higher requirement
for this trace element. Frequently, vegetarians and
chronically depressed individuals have been found to have
low zinc status. Human and animal studies show that zinc
monomethionine is well absorbed and retained compared
to many other zinc supplements tested.
Zinc 20 mg may be a useful nutritional adjunct for
individuals who wish to increase their intake of zinc.
