Scientists of the North Caucasus Federal University have discovered a special formula for zinc, which is easily absorbed by the body and much better than the analogues currently found in pharmaceutical preparations and dietary supplements.
And Andrei Blinov, Assistant Professor at the University’s Department of Physics, Technology of Structures and Nanomaterials, said in an interview with the newspaper “Izvestia”, “The results of studies have shown that we do not get with food the necessary daily dose of zinc. Therefore, many are trying to compensate for this deficiency by taking vitamins, minerals and nutritional supplements. “.
The problem, he adds, is that the form of zinc in supplements is poorly absorbed by the body. Also, the formula of zinc in pharmaceutical preparations is inorganic, but in the form of oxides and salts, so only 5% of them are absorbed by the body.
The new formula for zinc is a zinc complex consisting of vitamin B2 and zinc lysinate-riboflavinate. The researchers suggest enriching milk with this unique compound.
The Russian Ministry of Education and Science has announced that the results of laboratory tests conducted on the new zinc formula are considered ideal for the body.
It should be noted that the population of many countries of the world suffers from a deficiency in the level of the irreplaceable element of zinc. Zinc is very necessary for the full normal functioning of the immune system, the normal functioning of the brain, protects the nervous system, has antioxidant properties and accelerates wound healing.
