Zinc Defense with Copper
iThrive Essentials presents Zinc defence with copper.
Our Zinc product combines Zinc L-Methionine Sulfate and Copper Gluconate (in a 15:1 ratio). The methionine salt form allows zinc to be absorbed even in the presence of phytates from a regular diet of grains, nuts and seeds. Phytates otherwise inhibit zinc absorption. Zinc supports immune function. The reason Thrive Essentials Zinc includes copper is that supplemental zinc depletes copper.

Why zinc supplementation is important for everyone?
Research demonstrates that zinc deficiency is widespread, especially in the elderly. This deficiency may contribute to ageing-related impairment of immune function—or immunosenescence.
Scientists found that zinc supplementation offers an effective way to support ageing immune systems, as well as healthy inflammatory and antioxidant responses.
A longstanding problem is that zinc absorption can be limited and certain molecules in plant sources and grains can further inhibit absorption.
Beyond immune support, zinc plays other crucial roles. It is an essential component of superoxide dismutase, one of your body's most powerful natural antioxidants. Zinc stimulates the activity of about 300 enzymes that promote biochemical reactions in your body. This key mineral is also an integral component of vital hormones and supports protein and DNA synthesis, insulin production, as well as thyroid and bone metabolism. Zinc supports cardiovascular and neurological health and helps maintain vision in the elderly.
The age-related immune decline is partly due to the decreasing size and function of the thymus gland. Evidence suggests that zinc may help maintain the healthy function of the thymus gland in elderly people.
Why zinc methionine sulfate is the best absorbable supplemental form of zinc?
Research shows this formulation makes zinc more absorbable than other zinc compounds and therefore more readily available for the body’s needs. It has also been shown to be effective in reducing the severity of acne.
