Frequently Asked Questions
What role does zinc play in protecting immunity?
Zinc is a mineral co-factor in hundreds of enzymatic reactions and essential to the normal function of the immune system. Zinc is an essential mineral to keep the immune system strong. For athletes, this is especially important, since being sidelined with a viral infection or other illness can mean missing valuable training time.
How does zinc actually work?
When a virus or bacteria invades your body, zinc travels to key cells that help fight against infection and ensure that inflammation does not spiral out of control. Zinc deficiency affects the production and efficiency of immune cells, resulting in decreased host defence and increased risk of inflammation. Having adequate levels of zinc means your immune system is firing at optimal levels, even when your body is fatigued from training, avoiding sickness and subsequent lost training time.
Why does a high training load leave you susceptible to illness?
Highly active individuals are vulnerable to illness due to the increased physiological stress incurred by their body, as well as the depletion of resources and energy needed for muscle repair. Supplementing vitamin C and zinc ensures exercise does not deplete the range of nutrients needed for the maintenance of a healthy immunity.
When's the best time to take zinc for performance outcomes?
Zinc and calcium compete for absorption, so these two supplements shouldn’t be taken at the same time, nor alongside a meal or snack featuring dairy. Zinc is water soluble so can be taken on an empty stomach as soon as you wake in the morning.
Been taking this one consistently for a couple months now and have noticed a difference. I haven't been getting sick during training and less feelings of being run down. Highly recommend!
