- Now with 25 mg of zinc per serving!
- Supports healthy immune system function*
- Promotes a healthy mood and overall well-being*
- Provides support for highly active athletes with stressed zinc levels*
Disclaimer: Taken in high doses (over 40 mg daily), zinc may compete with copper in the digestive tract. If you are consuming a daily dose of 40 mg of zinc, additional supplementation with copper may be needed.
Strenuous exercise may cause mineral levels in the body to drop which may persist for several days, even after exercise is discontinued. Highly active athletes may lose important minerals, including zinc, through excessive sweating during prolonged exercise.
Since zinc deficiencies can negatively impact mood and immune system function, they can even cause a reduced rate of injury recovery. Athletes who train by doing frequent, prolonged workout regimens may want to consider supplementing their diets to ensure they are consuming the minimum recommended daily intake of zinc.
Why is Zinc Important?
Zinc is the second most abundant trace mineral in the body and is an essential mineral responsible for supporting whole-body health.* This mineral is required for healthy growth of the body, wound healing, taste, and smell and provides antioxidant properties to the body.* Zinc supports many healthy metabolic functions.*
Zinc also supports normal cell cycle activity through its critical role in cellular function including DNA replication, transcription, protein synthesis, cell membrane maintenance, and cell transport. If you consume a well-balanced diet, you may be getting adequate amounts of zinc. However, a poor diet may not supply enough zinc, a deficiency which can have negative side effects including poor growth rates, decreased immunity, and diarrhea. A zinc deficiency can be avoided by consuming a high-quality zinc supplement, such as Quantum Zinc.
Essential Minerals and their Vital Support
No less than 16 essential major minerals are responsible for supporting whole-body health. In addition to calcium, magnesium, and iron, zinc is an essential mineral which can be found in foods such as nuts, leafy greens, and beans, as well as in supplement form. Zinc helps support the cell cycle and maintenance of muscle and nerve function and is an especially key player in these processes.* Zinc is also required for the function of hundreds of enzymes that facilitate metabolic processes in the body.
Healthy Immune System Support*
The purpose of the immune system is to keep the body healthy. Zinc deficiency can result in immune dysfunction, while healthy levels of zinc can help support and even improve immune cell functions.* Zinc is critical in supporting both innate and adaptive immunity. Immune cells communicate with one another to determine which cells are healthy and which aren’t. In order to communicate well, immune cells need to have healthy receptors. To activate these receptors, ligands (tiny bonds found between receptors) must be healthy. Zinc supports ligand health, which in turn supports intercellular communication and normal cell function, resulting in optimized immune system health.*
Healthy Mood Support*
Fascinating research shows how zinc supports many synaptic processes in the brain. To support healthy moods, zinc promotes healthy serotonin levels, helps maintain synaptic plasticity, and supports healthy regulation of the central nervous system.*
Highly Absorbable Form of Zinc
Because zinc is crucial in maintaining whole-body health, it’s important to choose a highly absorbable form. Many zinc supplements contain zinc oxide or zinc carbonate, which are almost insoluble and poorly absorbed. Quantum Zinc is made with zinc sulfate heptahydrate, a hydrated form of zinc sulfate that is water soluble and highly absorbable.
Why Quantum Zinc?
Despite the importance of zinc in the human body, excess zinc is not stored in the body. Zinc must be regularly consumed in order for the body to maintain healthy metabolic functions. The recommended daily intake of zinc is 11 mg. for men and 8 mg. for women, with an upper intake level of 40 mg. per day. Now you can supplement your own zinc levels with Quantum Zinc, a high-quality, highly absorbable zinc booster to support immune health, healthy mood, and overall well-being.*
Our products do not contain hydrogenated oils, undesirable flavoring additive or colors, or artificial fragrance. Our products are made without added preservatives.
Our products are manufactured to avoid the use of magnesium stearate (from either animal or vegetable sources) because research shows that it may convert to formaldehyde (a metabolic stressor/ contaminator).
Our products are also manufactured to avoid the use talcum powder, a suspected carcinogen (an immune-compromising agent), that is used in the manufacturing process. The use of this agent is common in the nutritional supplement industry. Rarely will you find talcum powder listed on the label of another company's product, even though they have used it in their manufacturing process. However our QNL products are "clean" - without the use of undesired excipients.
Excipients are binders, fillers, flowing agents and "glues" that are often NON-nutritive substances used in nutritional products. Many of these substances are HIGHLY questionable.
Why would you want to consume anything that is not nutritive, such as excipients that are often just fillers in a nutritional product? We believe it is unnecessary to take nutritional products that have questionable, potentially harmful, non-nutritive excipients.
What about tablets? Tablets ALWAYS contain excipients (that is how they are made; they cannot be made without them). Therefore, we believe it is wisest to especially avoid nutritional products as tablets.
One common example of a questionable excipient is magnesium stearate, a cheap lubricating agent. Research shows it may be immune-compromising.
The consequences of this stunning discovery of resonant frequencies is enormous. It is a secret key that unlocks the hidden door to why some people can quickly shift to great health \- and others can't. This discovery reveals why the ideal resonant frequency of each cell can only be sustained or regained by consuming nutrients that are also at their ideal resonant frequencies.
This dynamic interaction between the cell and the nutrient creates a highly beneficial, harmonic resonant effect in which the cell is able to ingest not only the nutritional factors but can also absorb the higher resonant frequencies embedded in the nutrient.
Our manufacturer selects its ingredients based solely on purity and quantum resonance from qualified, trusted leaders and suppliers throughout the world. To determine which are truly premier ingredients, they also use bioenergetic testing, a specific testing kinesidogical system that allows identification of quality nutrients that meet our bioenergetic criteria.
All of our ingredients are tested for purity and species identification by our own in-house microbiological and biochemical labs and by independent laboratories. Each of our ingredient suppliers must meet our rigorous testing criteria as well as our stringent 4-polarity testing criteria to qualify as a supplier.
