Zinc, an essential trace elementZinc is a trace element, which means that it is only found in very small amounts in the body (only 2 g), but it is extremely important.
It is present in all cells and is essential for the proper functioning of more than 300 vital enzymatic processes such as protein synthesis, immune system, reproduction, vision, bone health and even insulin metabolism. Humans cannot produce Zinc themselves, which is why a regular, sufficient intake through the diet is necessary.
Dietary sources of zinc:
- Animal: meat, liver, eggs, poultry and seafood
- Vegetable: nuts, beans, seeds and certain leafy vegetables.
What role does Zinc play in our body?
In addition to being important for maintaining a normal functioning immune system, zinc also has other properties:
- Protects our body against oxidative stress
- Contributes to the production of cells and tissues
- Contributes to normal memory and learning ability
- Helps to maintain sharp vision
- Contributes to normal hormone balance in men and women (fertility and reproduction)
The absorption of Zinc as methionine
Zinc methionine is a zinc sulphate complex linked to L-methionine.Not only is zinc methionine better absorbed, it also remains in the tissue longer than any other zinc compound.
We therefore recommend taking zinc with meals. Simultaneous intake of zinc in combination with eating proteins improves absorption thanks to L-methionine.
The combination of both facilitates the passage of zinc through cell membranes thanks to specific transporters, after which it enters the bloodstream. Other Zinc compounds aid absorption through fiber and phytic acid, which are naturally present in the seeds and skins of many grains and legumes. These compounds bind to zinc salts and form indigestible complexes in the gut. However, due to the specific binding of Zinc to L-methionine, this effect is significantly attenuated.
