Nowadays, the deficiency of Zn is prevalent in humans. Thus the intake of Zn through dietary supplements seems to be in necessary. As one of the important sources of Zn, Angel Yeast zinc-enriched yeast is undoubtedly an excellent option.

Zinc (Zn), a nutritional, physiological and pharmacological trace element, is essential for plants, animals and humans. Zn plays a particularly important role in signal transduction, gene expression and regulation of apoptosis, metabolism of carbohydrates, proteins and lipids, maintenance of structures of over 300 enzymes, proper growth, sensory organ adjustment, reproductive function etc..

However, Nutritional Zn deficiency is prevalent in humans and affects approximately 2 billion people around the world, especially in the developing countries. Although the diet is the important source of Zn, the intake of Zn through dietary supplements or fortified food is prevalent due to very low Zn content of food.

Zinc sulfate (ZnS), zinc gluconate (ZnG) and zinc-enriched yeast (ZnY) are commonly considered asthree types/generations of Zn sources, i.e., inorganic, organic and biologically organic Zn.

Recently, Shuang-Qing Zhang, Ph.D. & Associate Professor from National Institute for Nutrition and Health, published an article “Comparison of the oral absorption, distribution, excretion and bioavailability of zinc sulfate, zinc gluconate and zinc-enriched yeast in rats” in the journal Molecular Nutrition & Food Research. This article fully demonstrates that zinc-enriched yeast is an excellent zinc supplement compared with zinc sulfate and zinc gluconate. Through the full and systematiccomparison of the oral absorption, distribution, excretion and bioavailability of zinc sulfate (ZnS), zinc gluconate (ZnG) and zinc-enriched yeast (ZnY) in rats, it demonstrates that ZnY was statistically more absorbed and retained than ZnS and ZnG based on the excretion amount.
