Why Zinc Lozenges Works

Zinc is sometimes considered the second most important mineral in the human body after magnesium. Zinc acts as a cofactor for many important enzymes. There are over 3000 proteins in the human body that have zinc binding sites.

Some of these proteins are enzymes that require zinc to facilitate reactions in the cells. Zinc helps stabilize antioxidant enzymes like metallothionein and superoxide dismutase. This aids in the normal excretion and transformation of harmful metals and superoxide ions, reducing free radicals.

Zinc also plays an integral role in stabilizing other proteins called transcription factors. These proteins help read portions of your genes. When working properly, cellular function and cell replication is normalized.

When levels of zinc decline (zinc deficiency), the “reading” or expression of certain genes may decline. This is most noticeable in cells built daily. The reading of genes allows for cells to make the building blocks for new cells and tissues. Intestinal cells need to be replaced approximately every 6 days. Cell manufacturing requires a tremendous amount of “reading” of genes.

Zinc bioavailability within intestinal cells is correlated with intestinal cell health. Any fast dividing cell will need sources of zinc in order to be healthy. This would include all skin cells, hair cells, as well as the intestinal cells.

Immune cells are another important type of cell that relies on zinc. Immune cells interact with the entire body. Zinc helps them function and communicate with other cells in the immune network. Scientifically, there are a variety of benefits of having normal levels of zinc.

The dietary intake of zinc supplements may result in helping support the following processes:

  • Normal immune functions
  • Zinc acts as a DNA modifier to support immune cell function. Adequate zinc levels have been shown to determine the type of T cell expressed. When zinc is present, there are likely more regulatory T cells that assist maintaining a healthy immune response.
  • Optimal cell replication and formation, especially for skin, hair, eyes, and the intestinal lining.
  • This is especially important for fast-dividing tissues Aldehyde metabolism formed in the catecholamine pathways.
  • Zinc is an important cofactor for the BHMT and MTR enzymes associated with the methylation pathway. It is also a cofactor for enzymes needed to clear aldehydes from the body including the ALDH2 enzyme.

Unlike other sources of zinc, Seeking Health’s Zinc Lozenge is made with a form that is gentler on digestion. It’s made with a chelated form that supports optimal zinc absorption. We use Albion TRAACS™, a proprietary form of zinc bound to glycine, designed to improve absorption and intestinal tolerance.


Product Information & FAQ's

Who Needs Zinc Lozenges

Your body's healthy immune response is well supported by an essential mineral, zinc. Due to its important role in the immune system, zinc deficiency is a known cause of immune system issues. Zinc Lozenge provides a potent and bioavailable form of zinc for optimal absorption.

Zinc Lozenge by Seeking Health features a high-quality, bioavailable brand-name form of zinc, TRAACS™ zinc bisglycinate chelate. Each delicious, chewable tablet provides 15 mg of chelated elemental zinc. While some other forms of zinc may upset the intestinal tract, this gentle form of zinc supplement is well-tolerated. Being an essential trace mineral, there are many health benefits of zinc.

Many randomized clinical trials have been conducted by organizations such as the National Institute of Health (NIH) regarding the benefits of zinc. These randomized clinical trials suggest that supplemental zinc may help support the following:

  • Healthy immune responses
  • Lung and respiratory health
  • Maintaining a normal sense of taste
  • Maintaining a normal sense of smell
  • Supporting healthy blood pressure and cholesterol levels
  • Normal metabolism and body weight
  • Healthy blood sugar levels
  • Normal hair health and growth
  • Healthy adrenal function
  • Normal hormone production
  • Healthy vision function
  • Healthy stomach and intestinal tissues
  • Healthy antioxidant enzyme activity
