Zinc is a fully reacted, proprietary TRAACS® amino acid chelate formulated for enhanced absorption. As an essential mineral, zinc serves catalytic, structural, and regulatory functions in the body. Zinc ultimately supports immune and neurological function, growth, taste acuity, nutrient metabolism, and reproductive health.*
Deficiency is common and can result from poor dietary intake, poor absorption, excessive losses through urine, stool, perspiration, or lactation, taking certain drugs, certain herbs, poor kidney function, excessive alcohol intake, and drinking mostly “soft” water can contribute to magnesium depletion as well. Albion’s TRAACS® magnesium lysinate glycinate is an excellent delivery system for magnesium, is resistant to competitive minerals, and does not weaken the action of vitamins.

Zinc Glycinate is a fully reacted, proprietary TRAACS® amino acid chelate formulated for enhanced absorption. It’s estimated that at least 12% of the American population is deficient in zinc due to poor absorption and dietary intake. As an essential mineral, zinc serves catalytic, structural, and regulatory functions in the body. Zinc supports immune and neurological function, growth, taste acuity, nutrient metabolism, and reproductive health.
