Zinc is a component of every cell in the body and is involved in more enzymatic reactions than any other mineral. Its multiple roles in immune function, reproductive health, wound healing, skin health and more make it a crucial nutrient for maintenance of good health.
Terranova Zinc 15 mg Complex comprises zinc as bisglycinate chelate* (TRAACS™), a highly bioavailable form of zinc which allows for optimal absorption.
Various other nutrients, including copper, are necessary for zinc metabolism. For this reason, the MAGNIFOOD COMPLEX provides naturally occurring sources of copper and other nutrients.
TRAACS™ stands for The Real Amino Acid Chelate System and is Albion™ Human Nutrition’s branded trade name for a range of its exclusive patented products.
The TRAACS™ name is born out of many years of extensive research and is reflective of the unique technology which ensures that minerals are easily digested and well absorbed, stable, and well tolerated.
The amino acid glycine (which is an essential nutrient) is bound to the mineral to achieve a highly bioavailable form, even in low acid environments commonly found in a compromised gastrointestinal system. Furthermore, its solubility and stability are proven within the high-acid environment of the stomach. Glycine forms a highly stable bond with the mineral within the GI tract and is easily recognised and absorbed by the body.
Greater biological activity
Greater tolerance (no gastrointestinal disturbance)
Compounds that do not interact with other foods that prevent mineral absorption (fibre, phytates)
Hypoallergenic, gluten-free, and vegan ingredients
MAGNIFOOD COMPLEX features synergistic botanical and wholefood ingredients. The featured botanicals provide naturally occurring forms of zinc, catalysts for zinc absorption and metabolism.
STABILIZED RICE BRAN is a good source of zinc, but also contains a wide array of other micronutrients which are required in order for zinc to carry out its numerous functions within the body. Although cereal fibres can impair the absorption of various forms of zinc, fully- reacted zinc bisglycinate is not affected in this manner.
SPIRULINA is a source of zinc and provides a vast number of trace minerals, vitamins and other nutrients which assist zinc in its many biological functions. Spirulina also contains a significant amount of superoxide dismutase (SOD), a zinc dependent enzyme which is essential to protect the body from certain highly destructive forms of free radicals.
PUMPKIN SEED has a high content of zinc, as well as being a good source of copper, the most important nutrient to keep in proper balance with zinc. The seeds also provide a high concentration of certain fatty acids which complement the role of zinc within healthy prostate tissue.
ACAI BERRY not only supplies zinc, but also represents a particularly good source of copper.
