Vilgain Zinc - zinc in a unique, highly absorbable form

Vilgain Zinc contains zinc in the highly usable chelate bond of zinc bisglycinate.

The most absorbable form of zinc on the market

In a unique chelate bond, zinc is bound to the two amino acids glycine, which are completely natural to humans and are commonly consumed in the diet. Compared to other forms of zinc (gluconate, citrate, oxide or sulphate) it has a significantly higher absorption rate. Thus, chelated zinc is simply the most absorbable form on the market [1, 2, 3].

One of the most important trace elements of the human body, which is involved in a number of vital processes

Zinc is one of the most important essential trace elements in the human body, and even has antioxidant properties. It is important for the proper growth and development of the fetus during pregnancy, childhood and human adolescence. It is also involved in a number of immune functions, and all athletes will be interested to know that its proper levels are important for healthy testosterone levels [4].

Vilgain Zinc contributes to:

  • Normal metabolism of macronutrients, carbohydrates and fatty acids
  • Normal cognitive functions and normal vision
  • Normal immune system function and vitamin A metabolism
  • Normal DNA and protein synthesis
  • Normal fertility and reproductive maintenance
  • Normal bone, hair, nail and skin health
  • Maintenance of normal testosterone levels in the blood
  • Protection of cells from oxidative stress
  • Participates in the process of cell division

Vilgain Zinc in points:

  • Zinc bisglycinate in chelated form is the highest quality and most absorbable zinc on the market [1, 2, 3]
  • High availability to the organism
  • Suitable for athletes and people with increased physical activity
  • If zinc deficiency is assumed, it is advisable to approach its supplementation individually
  • In capsules without gelatin, suitable for vegetarians and vegans
