SOLGAR® Earth Source Koji Fermented Zinc is formulated to support immune system health. Earth Source Koji Fermented Zinc starts by growing the koji culture on cooked rice. As the koji matures and ferments, it is enriched with zinc. This ancient Japanese fermentation process transforms mineral zinc into a bioavailable and food-based zinc. Zinc is a trace mineral and is found mainly in red meats and seafood like oysters and mussles. It is also found in poultry and dairy products.
Zinc contributes to normal immune system function, normal cognitive function, maintenance of skin, nails and hair, protection of cells from oxidative stress and normal fertility and reproduction.
