Zinc is an essential mineral that plays an important role in many enzymatic functions and helps to support healthy immune system function. Zinc gluconate is formed by the bonding of zinc with gluconic acid, and is better absorbed than many other forms of zinc. An important mineral for those who suffer from leaky gut, zinc enhances the barrier function of the gut.

Studies show that zinc supplementation of 50 mg daily aids in repairing the gut lining in those suffering from leaky gut (a condition often seen in dysbiosis and SIBO). If you are currently taking a zinc supplement, zinc-containing multivitamin, or are consuming large quantities of zinc in your diet, please note that a recent study found that excessive zinc intake (approximately 12 times the recommended limit) in mice resulted in an increased risk of C diff infection. Other studies show that adverse affects from zinc supplementation are seen when 100+ mg/day are taken for several months/years. No risk is shown from taking 50 mg daily, but we do recommend monitoring your zinc intake from other sources while taking this supplement.
