ZINC PICOLINATE 25MG CAPSULES
To get zinc into your blood stream you need to have a specific acid that is excreted by the pancreas. This acid is called “picolinic acid” When food containing zinc or zinc supplements reache the small intestine, duodenum, the pancreas excretes picolinic acid. This acid binds with zinc and moves it across your intestinal wall and into your blood stream.
Picolinic acid is created in the liver and kidneys from the amino acid tryptoph. This amino acid then moves into the pancreas. If you have diabetes or if your pancreas is overworked or weak, you will not be excreting enough picolinic acid and will not be providing enough zinc to your brain. You will need to supplement your diet with zinc.
The type of zinc you need is one that is bound with picolinic acid. This type is called “zinc picolinate.” There are other type of zinc supplements such as zinc citrate and zinc gluconate, but they are not absorb as good as zinc picolinate. If you cannot get zinc picolinate then the next best is zinc gluconate.
