As manufacturer of Zinc Bisglycinate we hereby state the following facts about the drug:
Zinc bisglycinate is a well-tolerated and well-absorbed zinc chelate. It is comprised of one zinc molecule bound to two (bis = two) molecules of the amino acid glycine. Because this form of zinc is absorbed intact (that is, bound to glycine) it does not compete with other minerals for absorption in the intestinal tract. Several studies demonstrate its superior absorption.
Other related data:
A small crossover study examined the absorption of 15 mg of zinc as bisglycinate or gluconate in 12 healthy volunteers. A single dose of each was followed by a 7-day washout period and then followed by a dose of the other form. Zinc bisglycinate resulted in 43-percent higher zinc blood levels compared to zinc gluconate.
Participants who took the zinc bisglycinate had significant increases in blood levels of zinc compared to the zinc gluconate and placebo groups. Zinc bisglycinate resulted in significant increases in blood levels of zinc in all 10 subjects, while 6 of 10 women in the zinc gluconate group had no significant increase or even had a decrease in zinc blood levels.
12 healthy women were given single doses of zinc bisglycinate, zinc picolinate, zinc gluconate, or zinc oxide. With blood levels being tested every hour for four hours, zinc bisglycinate resulted in the highest plasma zinc levels. In addition, zinc in red blood cells (RBC) was measured over the same 4-hour period. At the end of the study, RBC levels of zinc were in this order from highest to lowest: zinc bisglycinate > zinc picolinate > zinc gluconate > zinc oxide.
