It is difficult to cover the demand for zinc with a diet alone, so it should also be supplemented also by individuals who perform heavy workouts. This is because of the increasing deficiencies of zinc as a result of its excretion with sweat.
Zinc (chemical element from transition group 12) belongs to the trace elements, it helps maintain acid-base balance of the body, protein, energy, lipid and carbohydrate metabolism. It provides bone metabolism and transport of oxygen. It protects the body against free radicals. Necessary for the proper operation of the senses of taste and smell. Positive impact on the process of insulin metabolism in the pancreas. It supports visual adaptation to the dark, has a significant influence on brain function. It is helpful in the treatment of infertility and mental illness.

Dosage: Daily 12-15 mg zinc. Exceeding the daily dose of 20 mg cause symptoms of poisoning of the body.
Zinc citrate - an organic form of zinc with very good assimilability and bioavailability. In one molecule of zinc citrate, zinc ions constitute 34% of the compound’s mass. Therefore, 100 mg of the substance will provide 34 mg of zinc ions. It should be borne in mind when buying dietary supplements, in which only the mass of the whole compound in a portion is provided. Supplementation with zinc in the form of citrate in some people may cause ailments of the digestive system - nausea, appetite drop or stomachache. Zinc in the form of zinc citrate should be best taken between meals, due to the fact that many food products may limit the absorption of this element, especially products rich in phytates, dairy products or fiber.
Zinc gluconate - a highly bioavailable form of zinc, a trace element belonging to the group of essential microelements. Being the component of numerous enzymatic systems in the human organism, it demonstrates considerable influence on its functioning.
It is an important regulator of work of the immune system, it regulates the processes of production and activity of leukocytes. It promotes the efficiency of the immunity barrier of the organism, has direct antibacterial influence, which is taken advantage of in topical application of zinc preparations.
Supplementation with zinc is also used in order to increase the level of testosterone in the organism. It demonstrates an inhibiting influence on the activity of aromatase P450, which transforms the male sex hormone into estrogen.

Zinc picolinate – an organic zinc salt, its highly available form of proven ability to increase the element level in the body system. Zinc belongs to the microelements essential for the human body system and the demand results mainly from the fact that it is present in active centres of many enzymes conducting the reactions responsible for homeostasis.
It forms also protein domains binding DNA, called also zinc fingers, which determines the activity of many regulatory proteins. The proper supply of zinc ensures smooth functioning of the immune system. It affects also metabolism, both by modifications of digestive enzymes activity and influence on insulin secretion in beta pancreatic cells.
Zinc protects also the cells from the action of free radicals. The proper supply of the element can also increase testosterone synthesis, as it reduces the activity of aromatase. In men, zinc prevents prostate cancer and in women – regulates menstruation.
