(Magnifood is a scientifically advanced innovation)
Zinc Glycinate differs from other forms of zinc supplements in the fact that in the gut it does not get ionized before it is absorbed. A special process (chelation) completely bonds zinc to the amino acid glycine forming zinc glycinate. The dietary bioavailability of zinc in other forms is relatively poor whereas zinc glycinate has been shown to achieve superior absorption and bioavailability. Zinc is a co-factor in approximately 100 enzymes involved in protein, carbohydrate and DNA/RNA metabolism. Daily intake is required to maintain a steady state as the body does not have a specialized zinc storage system.

Amino acid chelate
During the digestive process chelation occurs in order to transport minerals across the intestinal wall so that they can be absorbed and digested. Minerals that we need are not synthesized by the body naturally, chelation must occur to benefit us for nutritional purposes. Amino acids are not the only chelators, however for minerals they are ideal; because amino acids in general are easily absorbed by the body to be used for their normal functions as protein synthesizers or energy producers. When minerals are attached to the amino acid they will follow it directly into the intestinal wall for digestion. Zinc Glycinate is zinc bonded to the amino acid glycine.

Health benefits of zinc:

  • Required for the catalytic activity of approximately 100 enzymes
  • Critical for thyroid function, adrenal function and ovarian tissue function
  • Critical for the production of sex steroid hormones
  • Important for the structure of proteins and cell membrances
  • Adequate zinc is important during periods of growth and development, such as pregnancy and childhood
  • Correct balance is required for proper sense of taste and smell
  • Plays a role in immune function, wound healing & DNA synthesis
  • Gene expression is often regulated by zinc-acting via transcription factors

MAGNIFOOD Enhanced Nutrition
In order to get the most out of nutritional supplementation it's necessary to achieve an intense state of synergy in the body. Synergy occurs when an interaction between compounds produces effects that are greater than the combined individual effects of each one. To provide its optimum effect, each vitamin, mineral or any other nutrient must be efficiently absorbed, distributed, metabolised and utilised, and must participate in a wide array of synergistic interactions with enzymes, co-factors, other nutrients. So it's the environment in the body which dictates how beneficial a supplement will be.

Magnifood is a complex of botanicals and phytonutrient-rich foods. The ingredients are combined in a manner which enhances the body's biochemical environment in order to maximise the potential benefits of the product's vitamins, minerals and/or other nutrients. Many of the plants used in Magnifood are fresh freeze dried. Research shows that fresh freeze drying has the unique ability to retain a plant's enzymes, and is shown to be superior to other drying methods in terms of activity, stability, solubility and preservation of a plant's original fresh chemistry (as it was when the plant was harvested). The biochemical profile of a fresh freeze dried plant very closely resembles the profile of the original fresh plant, but in a much greater concentration, due to the removal of the plant's moisture content.

While Magnifood is a scientifically advanced innovation, its origins are deeply rooted in holistic principles. Within each Magnifood complex, the marriage between science and holism produces remarkable effects - effects which are powerfully active, delicately balanced and intensely, profoundly synergistic.

Stabilised Rice Bran (SRB) - In addition to being a good source of zinc, SRB contains a wide array of other micronutrients which are required in order for zinc to carry out its numerous functions within the body. Although cereal fibres can impair the absorption of various forms of zinc, fully-reacted zinc glycinate is not affected in this manner.

Spirulina - As well as zinc, spirulina provides a vast number of trace minerals, vitamins and other nutrients which assist zinc in its many biological functions. Spirulina is also contains a significant amount of superoxide dismutase (SOD), a zinc-dependent enzyme which is essential to protect the body from certain highly destructive forms of free radicals.

Pumpkin Seed - Pumpkin seeds have a high content of zinc, as well as being a good source of copper, the most important nutrient to keep in proper balance with zinc. The seeds also provide a high concentration of certain fatty acids which complement the role of zinc within healthy prostate tissue.

Acai Berry - Like pumpkin seeds, acai berries not only supply zinc, but also represent a very good source of copper, the most important nutrient to keep in proper balance with zinc.
