Health Benefits And Uses Of Zinc Aspartate

Protection against free radicals and tissue repair

Zinc Aspartate

Zinc Aspartate is zinc bound to aspartic acid (aspartate). It is not harmful. Zinc Aspartate provides important protection against free radicals, tissue repair and benign prostatic hyperplasia. It is an important naturally occurring bioavailable delivery form of the immune boosting vital micro-mineral zinc. The aspartate moiety is an important ingredient of the citric acid cycle. As the citric acid cycle is the center for energy production within the cell, aspartic acid must be present in every cell of the body. It is therefore not something foreign to the body.  Zinc plays vital roles in several physiological and biochemical metabolic pathways.
