Zinc is an essential trace element your body can not produce by itself. Therefore you need to consume zinc in form of food or supplements on a daily basis. Zinc is involved in a wide variety of important bodily processes and is needed for the production over 300 enzymes of your body.
Providing an adequate dietary zinc intake by natural food would be the best alternative, but in the real world this is often not so easy to achieve. Our average diet often does not even provide enough zinc for sedentary people because of its high content of high-processed foods - not to mention intensely exercising athletes who show an increased need for zinc as a result of their hard training and a mineral loss through sweat.
For an optimal supplementation we use zinc bisglycinate – the form of zinc with the highest-bioavailability hat exceeds the bioavailability of other commonly used zinc forms such as zinc gluconate and zinc citrate by up to 40%!
Zinc is an important component of a variety of endogenous antioxidants and can help neutralize free radicals that can damage or even destroy the cells and the DNA of your body. This is especially important for athletes, because during hard and intense workouts your body will produce increased amounts of free radicals as metabolic waste products. Reduced damage of your muscle cells during your workouts and a faster healing of workout-induced muscle traumata because of the wound healing promoting effects of zinc can promote and accelerate your post-workout recovery.
In addition, we need zinc for the production of many important anabolic hormones such as testosterone, HGH, insulin and thyroid hormones. This implies that you will have little chance to gain significant amounts of muscle mass and strength without sufficient levels of zinc. Scientific studies have shown that Zinc could increase your testosterone levels by up to 30% and can counteract decreasing levels of the anabolic hormone IGF-1.
Zinc is also an important building block of numerous enzymes, involved in your protein, carbohydrate and lipid metabolism and are important for an optimal utilization of these nutrients. This will promote your gains. In Addition to this a zinc deficiency can reduce your metabolic rate, which can lead to an increase storage body fat.
