Zinc from three sources
Zinc Plus contains organic zinc in three different forms: zinc picolinate, zinc citrate, and zinc gluconate. The most common form of zinc is zinc sulphate, although this form is not as easy to absorb as the others. Zinc picolinate, for example, is 200–500 percent easier to absorb. All the different forms of zinc in Zinc Plus have high bioavailability, meaning that they are more easily absorbed by the body. This also means that you need a lower dose, reducing the risk of leaching other minerals, such as copper and iron.
