Vision HealthMedical professionals have recommended the use of Zinc suppliments to suffers of various different eye diseases including Macular degeneration, night blindness and cataracts. The combination of Vision Smart Supreme with Zinc provides powerful synergistic effects that can help protect eyes from increasingly common issues associated with use of computers, smart devices, UV light and unhealthy lifestyles.
Researchers believe Zinc is critical to healthy eye and vision function because high levels of the mineral are found in the macula (part of the retina). Here Zinc enables Vitamin A to create the pigment melanin which protects the eye. Evidence suggests that Zinc supplementation can actually help people see better at night.
In a benchmark study, called the "Age-Realated Eye Disease Study" (AREDS) and funded by the Federal government's National Eye Institute, researchers found treatment with Zinc and antioxidant rich extracts (like the blackcurrant anthocyanins found in Vision Smart Supreme) were able to help suffers of AMD. In fact, those receiving this particular combination of supplements had the risk of vision loss reduced by 25%!
Flu, Cold and AsthmaZinc is also commonly recommended to help boost the immune system. Supporting the treatment of the common cold, asthma and recurrent ear infections plus, it can help prevent lower respiratory infections. The highly potent phytochemicals found in blackcurrant (which include anthocyanins and other polyphenols) have been successfully shown to be effective against respiratory infections such as flu, cold and asthma. This is why blackcurrant extracts are so popular for use in widely marketed to consumers as supplements and functional foods around the world.
Vision Smart Supreme contains the highest levels of active phytochemical components, when taken together with new Zinc picolinate these supplements deliver amazing immune boosting effects! Combined they help strengthen the immune system, protect against cold and flu, fight infection and assist with asthma.
Brain Health, Alzheimer's, Parkinson's and Anti-agingThe brain requires Zinc for many aspects of regular maintenance and function. In particular Zinc plays a key role in the correct formation of proteins in the brain. Researchers have been excited by experimental results that have shown powerful brain health effects with Zinc supplementation. Interestingly, these same proteins have been the subject of other research works that have identified 'protective' qualities for flavonoids (such as those found in Blackcurrant extracts) in preserving protein structure. Supplementation with Zinc and Blackcurrant extracts can therefore have a 'dual action' effect to support healthy brain function whereby zinc promotes the correct formation of proteins and blackcurrant flavonoids preserve them.
As we age (in addition to poor diets and unhealthy lifestyle), our bodies natural ability to prevent damage from free radicals decreases. Free radicals and are known not only to cause significant cell damage but also impair correct brain signaling, enzyme production and clearage of waste. this can lead to an accumulation of damaged proteins, such as beta amyloid, which aggregate together. The resulting increase in oxidative stress and associated effects are key problems associated with age related cognitive decline in general and degenerative diseases such as Alzheimer's' and Parkinson's. Fortunatly, the anti-oxidant power of Blackcurrant anthocyanins and Zinc have been clinically shown to reduce oxidative damage from free radicals.
Why is Zinc Important?Zinc is considered an 'essential trace element' because very small amounts are required by the human body to stay healthy and is ranked by many specialists as the top supplemental mineral to benefit human health.
Zinc is utilized by hundreds of key enzyme reactions within the body spanning many biological systems. Functions include: correct protein and DNA synthesis, blood clotting, wound healing, correct immune function, healthy skin, maintaining vision and many more. Zinc also supports normal growth and development during pregnancy, childhood, and adolescence and is required for proper sense of taste and smell.
Why do Health Professionals Recommend Zinc Picolinate?Zinc supplements can be found in various forms whereby Zinc is conjugated to another molecule (that helps with delivery). Presently Zinc Gluconoate is the most common form of Zinc supplement. However, recent evidence suggests a newer form of Zinc is actually superior; Zinc Picolinate.
This form of Zinc carries two main advantages over Zinc Gluconoate (and other zinc formats). First of all, Zinc Picolinate contains a higher proportion of Zinc (80 % compared with 15 - 30 % respectively) which means lower amounts need to be consumed in order to receive the same quantity of Zinc. Second, Zinc Picolinate mimics the body's natural transport mechanisms and has far greater absorption than other supplement types.
Why Did we Add Copper?Zinc and Copper interact in a close relationship within the body. In fact, too much of one can lead to a decrease in the other! Because deficiencies of either mineral can cause health problems, we have added 1 mg copper to our Zinc Picolinate. This will help ensure the body is not at risk of a copper shortage following zinc supplementation.
