Get a Mood and Immune Boost with Neuro Zinc
Medically Reviewed by Dr. Parris Kidd
Do you ever think about zinc?
If not, you should. This powerful and versatile mineral is essential for human health and well-being. That’s why it’s called an essential mineral.

Zinc is a mineral vital for health and survival. Each of the body’s 30 trillion cells need zinc. At least 10% of all human genes code for zinc proteins, of which at least 300 are enzymes.
The body needs zinc on an ongoing basis since it doesn’t have substantial capacity for storage of this mineral. Unfortunately, many people don’t get enough zinc in their diet.
The Missing Zinc
Substantial numbers of Americans are at risk for zinc deficiency. In the U.S. and other industrialized countries, the demographic most likely to be zinc deficient is the elderly (up to 1 in 4 of those over age 60).
Deficiency of zinc allows oxygen free radicals originating in the mitochondria to threaten our antioxidant defenses, which creates “oxidative stress.” Zinc deficiency also allows increases in immune system messenger proteins – cytokines – that tend to promote inflammation.
Zinc deficiency can be due to inherited mutations, but most often is related to inadequate dietary intake and/or excessive loss from the body. Whatever its origins, zinc deficiency can pose serious long-term health challenges.
Zinc and the Brain
Zinc is vital for practically all the brain’s circuitry. The connections between the nerve cells (synapses) need zinc to operate, and many are functionally regulated by zinc. Also, as the brain generates the energy it needs, zinc helps protect it against the damaging effects of free radicals.
Zinc and Mood
Clinical studies have established that many people with mood problems have low zinc in their blood. Those with the lowest zinc levels tend to show the most extreme mood problems. Zinc is crucial for the dopamine and serotonin transmitter systems that help control mood.
In the U.S., at least 1 in 5 people experience serious mood problems and at least 1 in 4 experience serious feelings of anxiousness. Results from 6 double-blind randomized, controlled trials (RCT) suggest supplementing with zinc can improve mood.
Zinc and Immunity
Poor zinc status can cause immune problems in adults, particularly in the elderly, which often can be fixed by zinc supplementation. Older persons with digestive problems that impair their dietary nutrient absorption may avoid zinc deficiency by taking supplemental zinc.
In children, zinc deficiency has been linked to problems with the immune functioning of the lower respiratory tract. In a clinical trial, correcting the zinc deficiency with zinc glycinate improved the problem.
Neuro Zinc Ingredient
Zinc (zinc glycinate, as zinc bisglycinate chelate)
Zinc is a mineral crucial for mood, cognition, and brain connectivity. It’s also important for immunity, fertility, and antioxidant defense. Zinc bisglycinate chelate is readily absorbed and gentle on the digestive system.
Neuro Zinc FAQ
Who can benefit from Neuro Zinc?
Practically everyone, including adults and children age 14 or older. Neuro Zinc is recommended for individuals seeking to improve their mood, immune readiness, and overall brain health.
How can I use this supplement?
We recommend adults take 1 capsule (supplying 25 mg of zinc) daily, with food. This product is not intended for children under age 14, because their upper safe limit is set below 25 mg per day.
Users of this product should not exceed the Tolerable Upper Level (“UL”) for zinc, unless for a limited time and under physician supervision. The zinc UL developed by the U.S. government is 40 mg per day for age 19 years and older, and 34 mg per day for ages 14-18 years. If consumed at more than 50 mg per day for a period of weeks, zinc can begin to lower the body’s copper levels.
Can I use Neuro Zinc if I take iron?
Iron can compete with zinc for absorption, though only at relatively high intakes (above 38 mg per day). Users of this product should be careful to take supplemental iron only if they are tested and found deficient in iron, and only by itself and at least 2 hours away from Neuro Zinc or other supplements.
What makes Neuro Zinc different from other zinc products?
Neuro Zinc provides zinc as pure, authentic zinc bisglycinate chelate, a form known to be well absorbed, gentle on the digestive system (some zinc forms are not), and found effective in clinical trials.
Does Neuro Zinc contain allergens?
No. Neuro Zinc is free from dairy, glutens, sugar, corn, soy, nuts, eggs, yeast, and artificial colorings or flavorings. It is suitable for vegans, and compatible with keto or paleo dietary patterns.
