About Zinc Glycinate

Zinc glycinate is a compound of zinc and glycine — the smallest essential amino acid. Combining the two results in better absorption across the intestinal wall and into the bloodstream—partnering more effectively than any other amino acid or other material. Only then can zinc fulfill its vital contribution to the function of various body systems, including:

  • Immune system
  • Neurological system
  • Cardiovascular system
  • Reproductive system
  • Digestive system
  • Skin and bone formation

More is not always better. Higher dose supplements can lead to zinc dominance and copper deficiency. That’s why PLV’s Zinc Glycinate aims to replenish the body’s zinc stores with only 23 mg of highly absorbable elemental zinc per capsule. Adults can take two capsules initially to replenish and then dose down to just one capsule ongoing to maintain zinc levels.

Common conditions that increase one’s zinc requirements:

  • Acne
  • Stress
  • Surgery
  • Infections
  • Prostatitis
  • Injury
  • Sexual activity
  • Peptic ulcer
  • Vegetarian diet
  • Puberty
  • Pregnancy
  • Antacids
  • Osteopenia / Osteoporosis
  • Benign prostate hypertrophy (BPH)
  • Birth control pills
