VitaZinc contains organic zinc in the form of natural amino acid chelates, obtained by feeding spirulina algae with zinc citrate. This special type of spirulina algae is able to enzymatically transform zinc ions to organic molecules of spirulina cells. Zinc plays a central role in supporting immune function. Zinc is crucial for proper production of such immune cells as T cells, natural killer cells and lymphocytes. Overall, clinical studies show that zinc helps the immune system to fight off infections. For a proper mineral balance in the body zinc should always be taken together with copper.
