Zinc is a mineral co-factor in hundreds of enzymatic reactions related to protein and carbohydrate metabolism, RNA/DNA synthesis and intercellular signaling. Zinc is essential to the normal function of many organs and systems within the body; supporting healthy immune, skeletal, neurological, and endocrine functions. Dietary bioavailability of zinc is relatively poor, so NOW Zinc Glycinate (also known as Bisglycinate) is chelated to improve absorption and bioavailability. NOW uniquely offers Zinc Glycinate in a softgel capsule with Pumpkin Seed Oil as a healthy synergist.

Zinc (from Zinc Glycinate)
Pumpkin Seed Oil (Cold-Pressed)
