Micro-minerals like zinc perform essential regulatory and structural functions in our bodies. As our soils become depleted, our foods more processed, and our bodies more stressed, micro-mineral supplementation is needed more than ever. Zinc is actually a common deficiency, both worldwide and in the USA (in a milder form). Zinc is essential to the proper functioning of our immune, reproductive, and digestive systems. It also aids in hair and skin health as well as blood sugar regulation, energy metabolism, and muscle/bone growth. Zinc, although present in vegetarian diets, is tied up by a compound called phytic acid, which can impede zinc's absorption. Zinc is most concentrated in animal protein sources but can still be lacking for some people due to digestive issues, intake of certain medications, or other common health issues.
Zinc supplementation can be very important for all these reasons. Our zinc comes to life in our whole-food fermentation process, which is designed to transform each mineral into a rich, synergistic matrix of nutrition. The result is a unique form of zinc made with organic ingredients that brings you the best of real, wholesome food. It's perfectly balanced, gentle, and compatible with your body. Shouldn't your supplements follow nature's lead?
