Zinc Orotate — a shield against many kinds of tissue damage: to skin, eyes, heart, liver, brain...

Zinc orotate is a mineral salt that is normally found in the body in small amounts. Each molecule of zinc orotate consists of two molecules of orotic acid and one zinc atom — the zinc atom replaces a pair of hydrogen atoms (one from each orotic acid molecule).

Zinc is an essential element required by all living things. Every organ and tissue in the body contains and requires zinc. It plays roles in development, tissue growth, and in all major bodily functions. Several thousand kinds of proteins in the body contain zinc — some of these proteins are enzymes that use zinc atoms to catalyze biochemical reactions, others have structural roles. ‘Zinc finger’ proteins regulate gene expression, and zinc atoms play a role in gene-directed cell death (‘apoptosis’) which is a major regulatory process in growth and development, and in cancer and other diseases. Zinc also affects the way cells signal each other — it has been found to influence hormone release and the transmission of information along nerves.

Zinc’s antioxidant properties help to explain some of its effects on the body: protecting the skin from UV light, improving wound healing, and decreasing the relative risk of cancer and cardiovascular disease. Zinc is an essential component of the enzyme superoxide dismutase (SOD) — one of the major antioxidant tools the body uses to neutralize destructive oxygen ions.
