Zinc is an essential mineral required for a variety of processes. Research shows that a deficiency in zinc may be associated with a reduced immune system, increased hair loss, increased skin problems, and more. Our bodies do not produce zinc, therefore it has to be obtained through diet or supplementation. For zinc to be effective in the body, other nutrients are required, including B vitamins, molybdenum, and malic acid.
MaxLiving Zinc + contains highly absorbable zinc in chelated form, in addition to these other essential nutrients. This comprehensive supplement supplies the body with 30mg of zinc in just one capsule per day.

Zinc is an essential mineral. It is required for over 300 enzymatic reactions and processes in the body. Zinc is not stored in the body, meaning it is required to obtain from diet or supplementation.
Research shows that a deficiency of zinc may lead to a variety of health problems, including reduced senses, a low immune system, and difficulties with fertility. Supplementation with highly bioavailable zinc is a great way to supply the body with adequate amounts of zinc.
- The term “chelated” refers to minerals that have been bound to amino acids. For example, the zinc found in Zinc + is combined with the amino acid, glycine. Chelation greatly improves the bioavailability of minerals
- Zinc has been shown to have a favorable effect on the immune system. One study found that supplementation with zinc helped decrease the duration of sickness by around 33%.
- Zinc can also help improve skin health. One study found that supplementation with zinc helped reduce and improve the patients’ acne after 8 weeks.
- Fertility and reproductive health can be impacted by zinc. Research has found that a deficiency in zinc may lead to hindered ability for egg division in women, and low sperm quality in men.
- Vision, taste, and smell may be affected by zinc levels due to its presence in neurons. Research shows that there may be a link between decreased senses and zinc deficiency.
- Riboflavin, vitamin B-6, molybdenum, taurine, and malic acid are also all required for zinc’s effectiveness in the body.

What is a chelated mineral?
The term “chelated” refers to minerals that have been bound to amino acids. Chelation greatly improves your body’s absorption of minerals.
