Zn-Zyme supplies 15 mg of elemental zinc per tablet. Zinc is a mineral essential to both normal health and to optimal cellular function. As a cofactor for an excess of seventy enzymes, zinc plays an important role in many cellular processes. Zinc is also a component of specific DNA binding proteins, known as zinc finger proteins, commonly referred to as zinc fingers. Zinc fingers are vital for nutrient/gene interactions.
