Zinc with Copper
Essential Food State Zinc... Zinc the 2nd most abundant trace mineral in the body, present in all tissues. Vital for the healthy activity of our whole system. The activity of about 300 enzymes relies on Zinc. Based in a probiotic for absorption, 1mg of Copper prevents possible risk of deficiency during long-term usage.
People with low Zinc supply are known to experience increased susceptibility to a variety of infectious organisms. Zinc and Copper compete for the same absorption sites, and an excess of Zinc can ultimately cause a copper deficiency. Generally, at Ancient Purity, we like to keep things simple and as lone supplements when possible, we just think that the smartest way to utilise Zinc is to take in combination with Copper, both presented here are food sourced.
This Zinc supplement is presented in a ‘Food State’ as such these are supplements that present vitamins and minerals in a format as close as possible to the foods where those micronutrients naturally occur. This means they work in the body like food, which means the body knows how to use them to nourish whichever part of the body is in need. This supplement is beneficially combined in a base of lactobacillus bulgaricus a friendly probiotic species that is a native inhabitant of the human GI tract.

Zinc & Immunity
Zinc is often taken as a natural over-the-counter remedy for fighting colds and symptoms of illnesses. When taken for at least 5 months, Zinc could reduce the chance of becoming sick with the common cold, plus supplementing once you already feel sick can speed up the healing process. Research shows that Zinc can interfere with the molecular process that causes mucus and bacteria to build within the nasal passages. Zinc, based on its electrical charge, has the ability to exert an antiviral effect by attaching to receptors in nasal epithelial cells and blocking their effects.
Research conducted by the Medical Education Center of Chandigarh India found that when Zinc was administered within 24 hours of onset of cold-related symptoms, the duration of symptoms was significantly reduced compared to the control group that didn’t supplement with Zinc. Fewer patients in the Zinc group had cold-related symptoms five and seven days after experiencing the first symptoms compared to those who did not take Zinc.
Healthy immune systems can’t function without Zinc, it's a key messenger of immune cells and the Zinc inside your cells participates in important signaling events. Our body requires Zinc to produce its white blood cells that circulate throughout your blood, on alert to mount attacks against invading pathogens. Zinc also influences antibody and cytokine production, phagocytosis – or the ingestion of unwanted cells or particles, and gene regulation within your white blood cells.

Why our Body Thrives with Zinc
Cardiovascular Health: Higher end Zinc levels are associated with optimal cardiovascular health. Researchers now believe Zinc may play a key role in regulating how calcium moves in your heart cells and provides support for the normal functioning of your heart.
Respiratory Health: Studies show that adequate Zinc promotes respiratory well-being, especially during seasonal challenges to your health.
Metabolic Health: Zinc is required for the activity of more than 300 enzymes that assist with metabolism, digestion and other processes. It supports a healthy metabolism, aids carbohydrate and protein metabolism, and the absorption of nutrients.
Brain Health: Zinc helps prevent the accumulation of defective proteins in your brain and plays a key role in helping proteins maintain their proper shape for healthy cognitive function.
Sensory Organ Health: A shortage of zinc often leads to a loss of both taste and appetite. With a deficiency, the cells in your taste and smell organs can actually die faster. Zinc works to help your eyes sense light and transmit nerve impulses to your brain.* Lack of smell or taste is one of the classic signs of zinc deficiency.
Bone Health: Zinc plays a key role in your bone matrix and regulates the delicate balance between bone building and bone breakdown, especially important as you age. It also promotes bone mineralisation through its role as a cofactor of alkaline phosphatase, an enzyme found in your bone cells.
Protein Synthesis and Wound Healing: Zinc supports healthy skin and the integrity of your mucosal membranes.
Among the tissues in the human body, the eyes contain the highest concentrations of Zinc. Your eyes need the minerals Zinc and Selenium.
Zinc helps your body absorb Vitamin A and also helps many antioxidant enzymes in your body reduce the number of free radicals.
It plays an important role in eye health, and recent studies have shown the association of Zinc to age-related macular degeneration (AMD).
Could we be so "out there" to say to men that the warnings you had about participating in something so much could lead to bad eyesight? just a guess.
Zinc... In the base of Good Health
Copper and Why we need it (Additional Copper with Zinc)
It is possible to get too much Zinc, excessive amounts of Zinc can reduce your immune function and also lower your “good” HDL cholesterol levels. Excess Zinc can adversely affect your Copper levels as well as your hearing and taste. As little as 60 mg per day of Zinc has been shown to have a negative effect on your Copper status. At Ancient Purity we study and think on all these issues to give you the best and peace of mind, that’s why we've added in the correct amount of Copper to totally cover you and give you the theraputic dose of Zinc.
Copper, a mineral, is a trace element and humans require very small amounts of it. Copper is the third most abundant trace mineral in the body, but it is often deficient in a person's diet because food sources high in this mineral are not always eaten frequently. However, copper deficiency is rare and is most frequently seen in cases of severe anorexia, starvation, or rare kidney problems.
The human body contains approximately 100-500 mg of copper but its role is important, as it serves as a co-factor for enzymes involved in haemoglobin and collagen formation and is involved in incorporating iron into the structure of haemoglobin. Copper works together with iron to make red blood cells and it is the major component of the outer coating of nerve fibres and collagen.
Copper is involved in the maintenance of immunity, fertility, the formation of melanin, and the promotion of consistent pigmentation. It is believed to play a role in preventing high blood pressure, heart arrhythmia, oxidation of the cells, and keeping cholesterol low. Copper is used by the body to manufacture numerous enzymes, many of which work as antioxidants.
Zinc is so vital for our sexual health, finally, in modern times, physicians are saying that a lack of Zinc affects your sex life. Zinc is an essential mineral needed for the production of testosterone. It regulates many things and contributes to normal sperm counts and the regulation of your sex drive. Your prostate has huge concentrations of zinc, and a healthy prostate regulates prostatic fluid.
This aids in the production of semen, a lack of this results in a non-existent sex drive, low sperm counts, and lessened fertility. So a lack of Zinc hurts your prostate, and without a healthy prostate, you can't have a healthy sex life. For men, Ancient Purity have been pioneers in promoting Nofap to our friends, for those losing too much semen Zinc is absolutely essential, and once again shows benefits of Nofap.
Let Zinc Light You Up
Studies show that zinc plays an important role in fertility, especially modulating serum testosterone levels in men. Dietary zinc restriction and deficiency in normal young men is associated with a significant decrease in serum testosterone concentrations, which can negatively impact fertility and lower libido.
In one study by the Department of Internal Medicine at Wayne University, after 20 weeks of zinc restriction, giving patients zinc supplementation effectively increased serum testosterone in the majority of men.
Zinc also impacts women’s fertility since adequate levels of zinc are needed during the growth process of the female’s eggs, otherwise eggs cannot properly mature and ovulation suffer.
Zinc and Your Longevity
Full Body Protection
Zinc is essential for the healthy functioning of your brain, heart, liver, pancreas, kidneys, bone and muscles. At the cellular level, your cells use the DNA present in the cells as their blueprint each time they replicate. Throughout your life, your body is able to reproduce DNA. However, as you age, this ability becomes impaired, leading to the deterioration of your body systems.
Recently it’s been discovered that zinc plays a role in how fast your cellular DNA break down. Too little zinc impacts your body’s ability to repair the normal damage that occurs to your DNA from oxidative stressors. This is because excessive oxidative stress causes damaging free radicals, which can lead to accelerated cellular aging.
Other stressors like normal bodily processes – such as respiration – as well as pollution, poor diet and obesity can contribute to DNA damage. In a study of 18 men who consumed a rice-based, low zinc diet for six weeks, adding a modest amount of zinc to the diet reduced DNA strand breaks, indicating a reduction in the everyday “wear and tear” on DNA. Zinc plays an important role in helping to reduce oxidative stress and repair DNA, especially as you age.
Natural, Food Based, Bio-available Zinc... Nature is Good Health
