Zinc is fundamental to the activity of over 100 enzymes and supports immune function, DNA synthesis, & cell division. During pregnancy, infancy, & childhood, the body needs zinc for proper growth and development. Zinc also helps tissue repair and is important for adequate functioning of the senses of taste and smell. Daily intake of zinc is necessary to maintain adequate levels within the body because the body has no specialized zinc storage system.
Protéo-Zinc provides 54 mg of highly-absorbed zinc glycinate for enhanced absorption, optimal utilization, and gastrointestinal comfort. Supplementing the right form of zinc is key to maintaining healthy levels within the body. Zinc plays a crucial role in boosting immune function, maintaining healthy tissue growth, and increasing the antioxidant reserves that protect the body from free radical damage*.

Zinc is good for immune support and this Protéo-Zinc is chelated so it is more easily absorbed and processed by your body. We all know zinc is important to pregnant women, but I recently read that physicians are recommending that their patients take zinc, along with Vitamin D, Vitamin C and Vitamin B12 as these nutrients work to support immune health. That's enough for me to start taking it. This one is in the form of smallish capsules and the dosage is one per day. There is a 2 month supply in the package.
Protéo-Zinc | 60 Capsules | Immune Support with Albion TRAACS® Chelated Zinc appears to be a high-quality product. I personally cannot tell if it "works" or not for the reasons I am taking it, to bolster my immune system by offering zinc in the quantity I need through the most bio-available delivery system I can get. What I can tell you are some important things - 1) It is professionally manufactured, sealed (plastic shrink-wrap) with excellent quality capsule to the ***** eye 2) There are no telltale smells of any kind 3) There is no taste of any kind 4) I experienced no indigestion of any kind 5) The capsule is very small and easy to swallow. 6) The ingredients that I can see with the ***** eye appear to be visually consistent - no difference in color, which is white, between one and the next Although chelation is a good delivery system in many cases, I am not as convinced of the science of the Proteo Zinc, but only because I need to research it more. Until I began with this product, I had been taking a nootropic product and appreciate it. I plan to update this Review if there are any changes to report.
This is a very high content of zinc per capsule. Adults and children normally do not need so much zinc. However, because these are so high, we take one every few days just to be sure we don't over consume zinc. So far, we haven't noticed anything good nor bad, but it is reassuring to know that we have supported our immunity with this. Another benefit is the encapsulated zinc is broken down. With it being chelated, it helps with absorption by the body. Overall, we are pleased with this zinc based on the quality/form of the zinc, price, and quantity.
My doctor recommended taking Zinc, Vitamin C, and D every day to support my immune system. I like that they are capsules since capsules are easy to swallow and act quickly. I feel a little nauseous after I take them but it's not too bad and manageable, and my other family members have no problem.
