Zinc is a mineral that’s essential to a wide range of chemical reactions that take place within your body‚ including those that control your immune system and regulate the growth and repair of your cells. Zinc is also needed for the healthy functioning of the male reproductive system‚ and is involved in the breaking down‚ use‚ and storage of carbohydrates. If you have suffered from physical trauma‚ you may need extra zinc to heal your wounds. Pregnant women also require additional zinc to support your baby’s growth and development.
No matter what the reason‚ Karuna Health’s Zinc Picolinate Plus serves as a convenient source of the mineral. Zinc is typically found in natural‚ unprocessed foods; seafood is a good source of zinc‚ as is meat‚ dairy produce‚ and whole grain breads and cereals. If you’re unable to eat a balanced diet regularly‚ you may be at risk for a zinc deficiency. Your doctor can take a blood sample from you to measure your zinc levels; however‚ since it’s found throughout your body‚ it may be difficult to determine those levels through a blood test alone. For this reason‚ your doctor will take your age‚ general health‚ and diet into consideration when determining your need for zinc supplements.
Zinc deficiency is more common in the elderly and malnourished‚ so you may require supplementation as you age. Zinc deficiency produces symptoms such as hair loss‚ inflamed skin‚ nail deformities‚ and slow wound healing.
These capsules contain zinc in an easy-to-digest form‚ zinc picolinate‚ which may be helpful in restoring your zinc levels. Zinc picolinate is a mineral that promotes immune health‚ increases the speed of wound healing‚ and helps cells repair themselves.
Each bottle of Zinc Picolinate Plus by Karuna Health contains 60 capsules‚ which is enough to last for up to two months‚ depending on your dosage.
