Product overview: Zinc from zinc aspartate
Convenient tablet format
Adequate zinc status is critical for immune function. Zinc deficiency reduces generation of T cells, depresses humoral and cell-mediated immunity, leads to lymphopenia and thymic atrophy, and increases the frequency and number of infections. A prospective, randomized, controlled clinical trial was conducted involving 231 HIV-infected adults with low plasma zinc levels, who were randomly assigned to receive zinc (12 mg of elemental zinc for women and 15 mg for men) or placebo for 18 months. Zinc supplementation given to HIV-infected adults resulted in a 4-fold decrease in the likelihood of immunological failure, defined as a decrease of CD4+ cell count to <200 cells/mm3, after 18 months of use, compared with placebo. Zinc supplementation also significantly reduced diarrhea, compared with placebo. Zinc helps to maintain immune function, helps to maintain healthy skin, helps in connective tissue formation and helps the body metabolize carbohydrates, proteins and fats.
Zinc aspartate is source material of zinc in Genestra Brands TM Zinc. In a clinical trial, 300 mg of zinc aspartate (equal to 60 mg elemental zinc per day) was administered to 14 patients with inactive to moderately active inflammatory bowel disease for 4 weeks in order to evaluate the effect of oral zinc supplementation on metallothionein and superoxide dismutase levels in these patients. The plasma zinc concentration of these patients was significantly lower at the start of the study when compared to that of 22 healthy controls, but increased significantly towards the levels of controls during the supplementation period.
