As manufacturer of Zinc Ascorbate we hereby state the following facts about the drug:
Vitamin C and zinc are antioxidants together known as Zinc Ascorbate; contribute to the protection of cells from oxidative stress. Zinc Ascorbate is a gentle immune booster and represents an “Optimal Nutritional” supplement of the vital micromineral Zinc.
Immune System Benefits of Zinc Ascorbate
Vitamin C (Ascorbic Acid) stimulates the immune system by increasing the production of white blood cells, which help the body fight infections. Certain white blood cells called phagocytic leukocytes release interferons, which actually have antiviral activity.
Zinc is important to many enzymes within the immune system. Also, it assists white blood cells with infection-fighting and is required for the activity of thymulin, a hormone needed for T-cells to function properly. T-cells help other immune-fighting cells recognize infective invaders.
Dietary antioxidants, in the form of Zinc Ascorbate, protect the body from oxidative damage, which occurs when the body is exposed to certain environmental stress factors, such as tobacco smoke, pollution and radiation. Vitamin C is a very effective antioxidant, which, according to 2006 research in "Free Radical Biology & Medicine," can also help regenerate vitamin E, another important antioxidant. Zinc combines with copper to create a major antioxidant enzyme in the body called copper-zinc superoxide dismutase.
Zinc Ascorbate is better Absorbed than in-organic zinc salts. Also being neutral salt it exhibits better tolerance and better utilization. It also has greater tissue retention and is gentle on the system. By virtue of this scavenging activity, ascorbate inhibits lipid peroxidation, oxidative DNA damage, and oxidative protein damage.
