- A Zinc picolinate supplement combined with vitamin C in the ascorbic acid form. Zinc picolinate is the form of zinc shown to be the most available to your body (best absorbed and utilized). Picolinic acid, a tryptophan metabolite, is a natural chelator in the
body that supports mineral uptake by tissues.
- Researchers at the USDA Human Nutrition Laboratory found that adding Picolinic acid to standard diets increased the amount of zinc absorbed by the body. The research has also shown that the preferred way to increase zinc absorption is not to add picolinic acid to the diet, but to take zinc picolinate supplements. In fact, since zinc picolinate is so well utilized, the amount needed daily
may be only one-third as much as normally taken for supplemental purposes.
