Protein synthesis and wound healing – Zinc supports healthy skin and mucosal integrity and accelerates wound healing
Bone Health – Zinc plays a key role in the bone matrix, regulating the delicate balance between building and breaking down bones, which is especially important as we age. It also promotes mineralization through its role as a cofactor for alkaline phosphatase, an enzyme found in bone cells
Hormonal health – Zinc is known as a “male mineral” important for the normal functioning of the prostate and spermatogenesis, but it is also necessary for the regulation of the female cycle, the relief of PMS symptoms and the reduction of inflammation in endometriosis
What makes Zinc from Global Healing different from other zinc supplements?

They cooperate with small farms that grow wild and organic herbs with love and care. They select and test only the highest quality and purest ingredients, in order to obtain the most valuable from nature.
The strict production technologies they use are unknown in the supplement industry, such as triple distillation of water and the use of a cold extraction process, so that the heat does not damage the delicate ingredients of the plants. Raw essences from plant ingredients are obtained with the patented Raw Herbal Extract™ technology, leading in the industry, which preserves all the antioxidant values of the plant.
Their ingredients and packaging are always sustainable, recycled and have a minimal impact on the environment.
The vegan herbal zinc tincture from Global Healing is produced using a special extraction process from organic guava leaves.
This herbal formula with a mild taste is completely natural and gentle on the stomach.
Unlike most zinc supplements, including zinc gluconate, zinc picolinate, and zinc citrate, which are manufactured with synthetic forms of the mineral, the zinc in this formula is naturally bound to plant proteins and amino acids so the body can use it efficiently.
Many zinc supplements come in the form of tablets that are difficult to swallow, and almost always contain unnecessary filler ingredients, which we do not want to introduce into the body.
Herbal Zinc from Global Healing is gentle on the stomach and can be added to food or drinks.

The combination of zinc and Quercetin significantly reduces the spread of viruses in cells.
Quercetin is a known “carrier” of zinc into the cell. When zinc, which has an antiviral role, reaches the cell with the help of quercetin, it easily stops virus replication.
