CarnoZinc Select™ contains 75 mg of Zinc-L-Carnosine, a natural compound that has been extensively researched for helping to support gastric comfort and repair.
What is CarnoZinc Select?
Zinc-L-Carnosine (also referred to in the literature as Polaprezinc or Z-103) consists of two natural components bonded to each other: elemental zinc, an essential mineral, and L-carnosine, a dipeptide consisting of two amino acids, beta alanine and L-histidine.
Zinc-L-Carnosine is a highly stable compound, capable of resisting degradation by stomach acid until after it has adhered to the stomach lining, upon which it dissociates. Once separated from their chelated bond, the zinc and L-carnosine components of Zinc-L-Carnosine may exert both individual and synergistic effects including antioxidant and immune benefits, wound healing, and support for a healthy inflammation response. Zinc-L-Carnosine also has been shown to have an inhibitory effect on Helicobacter pylori and is widely appreciated for exhibiting high clinical efficacy without serious side effects.
Benefits of using CarnoZinc Select
Multiple clinical trials suggest that Zinc-L-Carnosine may help protect and heal the stomach lining, help preserve healthy gut barrier function, and help provide relief from occasional stomach discomfort. In addition, it may help contribute to healthy overall zinc status in those who are deficient in this critical micronutrient. Beyond gut health, Zinc-L-Carnosine has been studied to help support skin and oral mucosal integrity, healthy taste perception and liver health.
The patented form of Zinc-L-Carnosine contained in CarnoZinc Select™ (PepzinGI®) was approved in 2002 by the United States Food & Drug Administration as an additional dietary source of zinc for adults and children over the age of twelve with no limits placed on duration of use. CarnoZinc Select™ is rigorously tested for purity and potency both pre- and post-manufacturing, and is verified gluten free by independent laboratory testing.
