That is a good site but unless I missed it, doesn't have those figures.
Actually I've never seen all that in one place and some of it, never.
Every time I have seen a study giving information along these lines, there was not any great difference between any organic zinc form (all the ones you name are organic forms) or for that matter zinc sulfate, while zinc oxide was only about half as good.
My conclusion, it doesn't make much difference which organic form you happen to use.
Just double checked his site. Yeah, he says to use his uberzinc 2.0 once a day, or in the case of severe zinc deficiency, 2 tablets 2-3 times a day. So 75mg if your looking to supplement, and 300-450mg if severely deficient. Each tablet was zinc aspartate 25mg and orotate 50mg.
59 fish oil caps a day ? is that regular (180+120) or extra strength (400+200) per pill ? i take 36 regular strength pills a day and would gladly take more for more benefits if the cost wouldn't kick my ass
the best is zinc monomethionine trade marked as (L-optizinc monomethionine) opti-zinc for short is the most available to the body many of the top companies use the one for there best zinc ive even seen some of the better companies put this form in there ZMA supplements.
Abstract The comparative absorption of zinc after oral administration of three different complexed forms was studied in 15 healthy human volunteers in a double-blind four-period crossover trial.
The individuals were randomly divided into four groups. Each group rotated for four week periods through a random sequence of oral supplementation including: zinc picolinate, zinc citrate, and zinc gluconate (equivalent to 50 mg elemental zinc per day) and placebo.
Zinc was measured in hair, urine, erythrocyte and serum before and after each period. At the end of four weeks hair, urine and erythrocyte zinc levels rose significantly (p<0.005, p<0.001, and p<0.001) during zinc picolinate administration.
There was no significant change in any of these parameters from zinc gluconate, zinc citrate or placebo administration. There was a small, insignificant rise in serum zinc during zinc picolinate, zinc citrate and placebo supplementation.
The results of this study suggest that zinc absorption in humans can be improved by complexing zinc with picolinic acid.
