November 25, 2015

viridian-balanced-zinc-complex-90-veg-caps Zinc is found in every cell of the bosy and is a component in over 200 enzymes.In fact, zinc functions in more enzymatic reactions than any other mineral.The avergae body contains a total of 1.4 to 2.5 grams of zinc, where it is stored primarily in muscle 65% of thetotal is highly concentrated in red and white blood cells.Other tissues with high zinc concentrations include bone,skin,kidneys,liver,pancreas,retina and prostate.
  • Immune Function- zinc is involved in virtually every apsect of immunity.Zinc supplementation produced a significant restoration of serum thymulin (a hormone produced by the thymus gland).Typically, as we age the level of thymulin and other immune enhancing thymus hormones decrease.The reduction of these hormones leads to an impaired immune system.
  • Anti-Viral- Zinc like vitamin C, also possesses direct antiviral action.This includes antiviral activity against several viruses that cause the common cold.A double blind trial demonstarted lozenge's containing zinc significantly reduced the avergae duration of the common cold by seven days.
  • sick-kidAnti Inflammatory-Zinc possess antioxidant effects and functions in the antioxidant, super oxide dismutase (SOD) Zinc levels are found reduced in-patients with rhematoid arthritis (RA) and several studies have used zinc in RA showing a therapeutic effect.
  • Male Sexual Function- Zinc used in virtually every aspect of male reproduction, including hormone metabolism, sperm function and sperm motility.
  • Acne-Several double blind studies have shown zinc yields similar results to tetracycline in superficial acne and superior results in deeper acne.Zinc is required for the effective release and utilisation of vitamin A from liver storgae.Vitamin A is a higly beneficial nutrient in acne treatment protocols.
  • Alzheimer's Disease- Zinc deficiency is one of the most common nutrient deficiences in the elderly and may be a major factor in the development of Alzheimer's disease.The end result of a zinc deficiency could mean the destruction of nerve cells and the formation of neuro-fibrillary tangles and plaques.The levels of zinc in the brain and cerebrospinal fluid in-pateints with Alzheimer's disease are markedly decreased.

copper-cu-number-29-in-periodic-tableThe role of Copper and why it's included in Viridian Balanced Zinc Complex

Copper is included because zinc may depress copper levels if an appropriate ratio is not maintained (approx. 10:1 zinc to copper).It has been postulated that a relative or absolute deficiency of copper characterised by a high ratio of zinc to copper results in hypercholesterolemia (elevated cholesterol levels in the blood), myocardial (heart muscle) and arterial damage and increased mortality.

Copper is also involved in the production of SOD alongside zinc.Copper deficiency results in iron deficiency anemia because copper if required in proper iron absorption and utilisation. Copper is also necessary for the activation of an enzyme lysyl oxidase,required for in the crosslinking of collagen and elastin, crucial for healthy skin,hair,bone,blood vessels and joints.

The role of Vitamin A in Viridian Balanced Zinc Complex

Vitamin A is added to the complex to enhance synergy, thus supporting immune function, visual health, skin health, antioxidant and reproductive aspects.
