Zinc Sulfate Monohydrate
Zinc is incompletely absorbed from gastrointestinal tract and absorption is reduced in the presence of some dietary constituents such as phytates. Bioavailability of dietary zinc varies widely between different sources, but is approximately 20% to 30%. Zinc is distributed throughout the body with the highest concentrations found in muscle, bone, skin and prostatic fluids. It is primarily excreted in the faeces and regulation of faecal losses is important in zinc homoeostasis. Small amounts are lost in urine and perspiration.
For prevention and treatment of Zinc deficiency characterized by growth retardation and defects of rapidly dividing tissues such as the skin, the immune system and the intestinal mucosa. It is also used as supplements to correct Zinc deficiency: for example in malabsorption syndromes, during parenteral feeding, in conditions with increased body losses (trauma, burns and protein-losing states) and in acrodermatitis enteropathic ( a rare genetic disorder characterized by severe Zinc deficiency).
