What Is It?
Zinc is vital for a wide range of physiological mechanisms,including support of the body's defense system and tissue development and repair. Our body does not easily absorb zinc, unless the zinc is first attached to another substance.
Chelation is one of the processes used to attach zinc to other substances. Our elemental zinc has been attached to specific organic molecules that have been electrically charged, known as Chelates. Their properties allow a better bond to the zinc and enables higher absorption and bio-availability*.
Uses For Zinc
Nutrient Metabolism: Zinc is a constituent of dozen enzymes involved in metabolism and digestion , including healthy storage and metabolism of carbohydrates. It also plays a role in the normal absorption and actions of the B vitamins*.
Immune Support: Zinc is fundamental in supporting the body's defense system*. It promotes healthy neutrophils, natural killer cells, phagocytosis, cytokine production, antibody production, and gene regulation within lymphocytes*. Zinc is involved in many basic cellular functions including DNA replication, RNA transcription, cell division and activation, and stabilization of cell membranes*.
Tissue Development and Repair: Zinc plays an important role in healthy tissue development and collagen formation, including enzymes essential to tissue respiration. It is crucial for healthy fetal development*.
Brain Development: Zinc is an important factor in the metabolism of neurotransmitters, prostaglandins, and for maintaining brain structure and function*. Studies using zinc for ADHD have taken place in the Middle East where zinc deficiency is relatively common compared to Western countries*.
Are There Any Potential Side Effects Or Precautions?
Adverse effects from Zinc supplementation are rare when taken as directed. In very rare cases zinc might cause nausea, vomiting, diarrhea and a metallic taste. Consult your physician for more information.
How Is This Zinc Different?
The “Kreb”in the name of the product refers to the the function of the organic molecules attached to the zinc . Those organic acids (see below for the list) are important for the proper transfer of cellular energy metabolism and the transfer of all essential amino acids in the Kreb cycle*.
What Is The Source?
Earthen ore zinc vaporized and reacted with oxygen to produce Zinc Oxide. This is then bounded to a “Kreb”cycle complex containing the following acids: alpha Ketoglutaric, malic,citric and succinate acids. All of which are organic acids and play vital role in the Kreb Cycle (Also known as citric acid cycle).
Liqui-Zinc ( Kreb Chelates)
DOES NOT CONTAIN eggs, wheat, gluten, dairy, casein, yeast, corn, soy, refined sugars, artificial sweeteners, colors and flavors.
Are There Any Potential Drug Interactions?
Taking zinc along with some antibiotics might decrease the effectiveness of certain antibiotics. To avoid this interaction take zinc supplements at least 1 hour after antibiotics. Please consult with a certified healthcare practitioner for more information.
