Healthy Origins zinc bisglycinate chelate is produced using chelation technology from Albion Laboratories, the world leader in amino acid chelate nutrition. The scientists at Albion have found a way to substantially increase the bioavailability of elemental zinc by bonding it with the amino acid glycine. Amino acids are easily identified and assimilated by the body. Glycine is the ligand that supports the transport of zinc into the intestinal cell, maximizing the bioavailability of the zinc. Zinc bisglycinate chelate may help to support immune health, hair health, skin health, nail health, cellular health, DNA formation and healthy vision.
