An anti-oxidant and essential trace element, zinc is involved in most metabolic pathways. It supports immune function, healthy skin, reproduction, and stable emotions. Zinc picolinate is the form of zinc that works best for mental health. It improves premenstrual disorder, irritability, anxiety, and depression. Numerous studies have demonstrated the benefits of zinc in those with a metal metabolism disorder (copper excess) or pyrrole disorder (elevated pyrroles). In the correct dosage, zinc can help improve irrational thoughts, numerous sensitivies, stress
control, memory, and motivation. For those with excess free copper, it lowers copper levels and therefore assists in L-tyrosine being converted to dopamine.
