Product Description

+

Especially athletes, whose immune system is often compromised due to an increased number of stress hormones, use zinc capsules to prevent colds and maintain normal testosterone levels.

Among vitamins and minerals, zinc is the only one the effect of which has been confirmed by several metastudies. Zinc for the common cold—not if, but when, that includes 13 studies, proves that supplementing 75 mg of zinc in capsules (or tablets) reduced the length of "common cold" by 12-48%.

Furthermore, smaller doses of zinc capsules received by children for prophylaxis reduced the occurrence of the most common infectious diseases. To gain the most from this supplement are the vegans, as phytic acid blocks the uptake of zinc and magnesium.

Athletes also consume zinc capsules to boost strength and improve recovery. We know that long endurance training sessions affect the testosterone-cortisol ratio, and even short-term zinc supplementing can restore normal values.

A study performed on elite wrestlers, who had lower testosterone and thyroid hormones levels, managed to restore normal testosterone levels simply by supplementing zinc for four weeks.

Zinc capsules also have a strong anti-inflammatory, antioxidant, and antiviral effect. Zinc affects the cytokines, which connect various parts of the immune system. Numerous diseases cause excessive activation of the cytokine receptors, which leads to an inflammation in the body that worsens the primary disease. Zinc calms the inflammatory cytokines, and its ions prevent the polymerase activity. This is why high doses of zinc are used as support treatment with numerous viral conditions.
