Zinc Citrate Powder
Zinc Citrate powder is offered as 10g.
Zinc citrate powder is available as dihydrate and trihydrate and is produced by complete neutralisation of citric acid with a high purity zinc source, subsequent precipitation and dehydration. Zinc citrate is mainly known for its use in dental care products such as toothpastes, mouthwashes and chewing gums due to its anti-inflammatory and antimicrobial effects and its potential ability to reduce or inhibit the formation of dental plaque and tartar. Zinc in itself is an essential nutrient and trace mineral that the body requires to function normally and optimally and is the second most abundant mineral found in the human body behind iron. Because Zinc is not produced by the body, Zinc must be obtained from diet or external sources.Numerous research studies shows that Zinc as a mineral may potentially enhance immune function, stabilize blood sugar levels, and support skin, eyes, and heart health.
Zinc Citrate Powder and absorption
In a recently published study in the ‘Journal of Nutrition’, has found zinc citrate to be equal to zinc gluconate and higher than zinc oxide in terms of bodily intake, this research could potentially help battle regional deficiencies and conditions like diarrhea . The study found zinc citrate to have a zinc absorption of 61.3%.
Zinc Citrate Powder and Obesity
A recent study was designed to determine whether zinc supplementation could increase the effects of restricted calorie diet (RCD) on obesity. A randomized, double-blind clinical trial was performed on 40 obese subjects who were randomly assigned to receive zinc supplements (30 mg/day) or placebo for a period of 15-weeks. Both groups were under a restricted calorie diet (~ 300 kcal lower than the estimated energy requirement). Anthropometric measurements, biochemical markers, appetite, and dietary intakes were determined during the study period .The study concluded that reductions of body weight, body mass index, waist circumference, and hip circumference were significantly higher in the zinc group compared to the placebo group.
This study seems to indicate that Zinc supplementation, with a restricted calorie diet, may have favorable effects in reducing anthropometric measurements, inflammatory markers, insulin resistance and appetite in individuals with obesity, and may potentially play an effective role in the treatment of obesity. Further research is needed to warrant the effects of zinc citrate as an obesity aid for human consumption.
