I have been order zinc picolinate by Nutricology since long ago. It is a reliable brand. This zinc has helped my child with special needs. I can see the difference if I stopped the supplement. Her PICA behaviour will come back. The size is just good for her to swallow.
Was searching specifically for zinc in PICOLONATE form, since it absorbs better. My nails for the last half year are gross, they are white and Zinc is a “beauty” mineral, it will take a while to see the results but glad I came up wit these.
Zinc picolinate is a compound with picolinic acid (a form of tryptophan, an amino acid that takes part in protein metabolism and in reactions that produce serotonin, melatonin and choline.) Tryptophan has a positive effect on mood and performance. In this compound, the absorption and assimilation of zinc by the body is maximum.
Since so many of us are suspected zinc deficient, and since I have no half moons on my nails (supposedly a sign of low zinc), I take two at bedtime only as away of separating them from other supplements. An not good with eating fish so supplementing with these. I hope for a cumulative effect with these, small and easy to take.
