BioCare Zinc Citrate is a well-absorbed form of zinc in the form of a small tablet that can be swallowed or dissolved in water. Zinc Citrate is a high potency, economical form of zinc; useful where high doses of zinc are required.
Zinc has many general health benefits, including its contribution to normal cognitive function, maintenance of normal hair, skin, nails and bones - as well as contributing to normal fertility and reproduction support.
Mineral citrates are formed by bonding mineral ions to citric acid. Citric acid, an organic acid widely found in fruits, effectively bonds to many minerals and trace nutrients - acting as an efficient mineral transporter within a diet. Zinc citrate occurs naturally in human breast milk.
