Zinc picolinate is obtained by combining zinc with picolinic acid


Zinc is one of the most abundant minerals in the body and plays a key role in almost all aspects of health. Many people turn to zinc supplements when they feel sick


Benefits of zinc:

Zinc is essential for the normal function of many human organs and body systems, including the skeletal, immune, nervous and endocrine systems.

It is an essential mineral factor for hundreds of enzymatic reactions related to protein and carbohydrate metabolism, RNA/DNA synthesis, and intercellular signaling.

It should be noted that zinc plays an important role in neutralizing free radicals in the body and is useful for preventing premature aging.

Another important function of zinc is its role in understanding taste and smell by the tongue and olfactory receptors.

Zinc is important for reproductive glands and function. It improves prostate function and regulates blood testosterone levels.

Having enough zinc helps to strengthen hair, skin and nails.

Complications of zinc deficiency:

Zinc deficiency is a major health problem worldwide. The causes of zinc deficiency can be nutritional, genetic or as a result of diseases. Severe zinc deficiency leads to symptoms such as skin problems, weight loss, diarrhea, infections secondary to immune system dysfunction, hypogonadism (decreased functional activity of the gonads), and problems with wound healing.

Zinc supplementation is necessary in cases of zinc deficiency, but high doses of zinc supplementation for a long time can lead to copper deficiency or anemia. Therefore, the rational use of zinc supplements at the required time is necessary.


Who are prone to zinc deficiency?

Patients with malnutrition, alcoholism, inflammatory bowel disease and malabsorption syndromes are at increased risk of zinc deficiency


Complications of zinc overconsumption:

Zinc supplements are generally well tolerated, although they have been associated with adverse side effects such as nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, and stomach pain in some people.

Additionally, more than 40 mg/day of zinc can cause flu-like symptoms such as fever, cough, headache, and fatigue.

Zinc can also interfere with your body’s ability to absorb copper, potentially leading to a deficiency of this key mineral over time.

Additionally, zinc supplements have been shown to interfere with the absorption of certain antibiotics and reduce their effectiveness when taken concurrently.

To reduce the risk of side effects, follow the recommended dosage and avoid exceeding the upper tolerable limit of 40 mg per day, unless under medical supervision.

If you experience negative side effects after taking zinc supplements, reduce your dosage. If symptoms persist, consult a healthcare professional.

When choosing a zinc supplement, you will likely find that there are many different types available.


Here are some of the types you may find in the market:

Zinc gluconate: as one of the most common forms of over-the-counter supplements. Zinc gluconate is often used in cold medicines such as tablets and nasal sprays.

Zinc Acetate: Zinc acetate is often added to cold candies to reduce symptoms and speed healing.

Zinc sulfate: In addition to helping to prevent zinc deficiency, zinc sulfate reduces the severity of acne.

Zinc Citrate: A 2014 study found that this type of supplement is as well absorbed as zinc gluconate, but has a more bitter and appealing taste.

Zinc Picolinate: Zinc picolinate is obtained by combining zinc with picolinic acid. This particular form of zinc is used because it is better absorbed by the body than many other forms.
