Medical professionals have recommended the use of Zinc supplements to suffer 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-Related 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 Asthma
Zinc 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-aging
The 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 body's 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. Fortunately, the anti-oxidant power of Blackcurrant anthocyanins and Zinc has been clinically shown to reduce oxidative damage from free radicals.
Zinc Glycinate chelate be can much more absorbed in human body compared to other Zincs?
In fact, although Zinc is necessary in any parts of the body, it is quite difficult to be taken into blood streams in spite of the daily essential need in many organs and large intestines.
According to human research made on 12 healthy women by European lab 2007, Zinc Glycinate administration was safe and well tolerated and bis-glycinate significantly increased the oral bioavailability of zinc (+43.4%) compared with the gluconate. Zinc bis-glycinate resulted in 43-percent higher zinc blood levels absorption compared to zinc gluconate.
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 glycinate chelate. This will help ensure the body is not at risk of a copper shortage following zinc supplementation.
