Zinc is necessary for proper functioning of the immune system and is essential as a trace element for the activity of over 300 enzymes that are involved in a variety of important biochemical pathways – many of them involved in metabolism. Our immune system depends on optimal levels of zinc to function properly. Zinc deficiency can be a common occurence in children with special needs as well as those with immune dysfunction. Zinc bolsters the immune system and makes wounds heal quicker. It is also essential for growth and maintenance of body tissues and it plays a major role in the development of the fetus and the overall growth in children. Common signs of zinc deficiency are sleep disturbances, i.e. difficulty falling asleep, diarrhea or loose stools, poor appetite or picky eating, unhealthy skin, behavioral problems, inability to heal wounds and repeated infections.
Since our bodies use picolinic acid to absorb and transport certain minerals, New Beginnings Nutritionals is offering Zinc Picolinate as a viable form of zinc for improved absorbability.
