Using the same proprietary technology that created ReMag and ReMyte, RNA Reset has made Pico Zinc™ Plus available. Pico-Zinc™ Plus is a stabilized ion of zinc and copper in the correct balance that is fully absorbed at the cellular level.
Zinc is involved in numerous aspects of cellular metabolism. It’s required for catalytic activity of approximately 100 enzymes and it plays a role in immune function, protein synthesis, wound healing, DNA synthesis, and cell division. Zinc also supports normal growth and development during pregnancy, childhood and adolescence and is required for a proper sense of taste and smell. A daily intake of zinc is required because the body has no specialized zinc storage system.
In order to support customers, who require more zinc, as evidenced by zinc deficiency symptoms, RNA has created a concentrated zinc formula with an individual dose of 20 mg per 1/2 tsp.
Zinc plays a major role in supporting the immune system. This essential mineral is required by hundreds of enzymes that control functions for immune response and a whole lot more.
Zinc is essential for immune system support, responsible for 100 enzyme reactions in the body. Zinc has been proven to directly kill viruses. Also studies show that those with zinc deficiency have low levels of T cells in the body, which play an important role in the immune response to attack and kill cells that are infected with various organisms.
This essential mineral is a common ingredient in cold lozenges and other over-the-counter cold remedies for a reason: it works well when taken consistently.
Zinc is no longer easy to obtain from diet alone, especially with people eating less red meat these days. And, stress can strain the already-stretched zinc reserves in your body.
However, the body has trouble handling high doses of zinc for prolonged periods. It can disrupt the delicate balance among minerals.
Copper’s uptake from the diet through the intestines is only about 5 percent, and adults only have about 80-100mg in the body.
Dr Dean writes ” … I hear from practitioners who do hair tissue mineral analysis that there is a noticeable level of toxicity occurring in the population. They are sounding the alarm, and many people are now afraid of copper. The most common sources of copper toxicity are from water contaminated by copper plumbing; estrogens in birth control pills that drive down zinc, elevating copper; copper IUDs; and copper in multiple vitamin mineral supplements.
“A zinc to copper imbalance, with too much copper and not enough zinc, can be a factor in postpartum-depression, premenstrual tension, ADHD, psychosis, and paranoia, since copper acts as a brain stimulant. Pico Zinc™ Plus (and ReMyte™) contains 15 times more zinc than copper, which will help treat excess copper in the body.
“Perhaps because of its low level of absorption, copper has its own transport system, via a protein called ceruloplasmin, that ferries it through the blood. However, the picometer-ionic copper in Pico Zinc™ Plus (and ReMyte™) is 100 percent absorbed at the cellular level and does not require special transport, so it is completely bioavailable.
“If you have copper toxicity, the excess mineral can jam copper receptor sites, causing simultaneous symptoms of copper excess and copper deficiency. Thus, the very low dose of copper in Pico Zinc™ Plus (and ReMyte™) will give the body the bioavailable copper it needs to carry out its important functions.
One of those crucial functions is related to thyroid health. Copper plays an important role in the metabolism of the amino acid tyrosine, which is a precursor to T4 (thyroxine).”
As Dr Dean writes “… Before my naturopathic training, I mostly heard about copper as an antagonist to zinc, and if you took too much zinc, you could lower your levels of copper. Then I learned that copper helps create elastin, which cross-links with collagen in connective tissue.
“Copper is important in red and white blood cell formation; it is found in most antibodies; and it’s necessary for producing the color and texture of your hair, as well as the elasticity of your skin.
“Copper functions as a constituent of several enzymes. Superoxide dismutase (SOD), monoamine oxidase (MAO), and cytochrome oxidase are the most important. Cytochrome oxidase is the final step in the electron transport chain, occurring in mitochondria that creates ATP (adenosine triphosphate), the main energy source in our cells.
“I repeat, copper deficiency and copper toxicity can both block copper function, resulting in hypothyroidism, decreased muscle function, and a sluggish brain. That’s why a small amount of bioavailable copper is the treatment of choice for both copper deficiency and copper excess.”
Zinc and Copper
The challenge is in getting zinc and copper into the system that will be easily and fully absorbed by your body.
Dr Dean’s proprietary process produces tiny, stabilized zinc and copper ions capable of passing easily into the cell – where all the important work gets done. No chelation agent required.
It is highly recommend using Pico Zinc™ Plus along with Dr Dean’s other formulas.
Pico Zinc® Plus is a liquid mineral supplement derived from pure sources of minerals, and stabilized in its ionic form. These minerals include no additives, binders, flavoring, or colors, and are intended to be diluted with water, juice, smoothies, or as a baking ingredient in proportion.
Serving Size: 1/2 teaspoon = 2.5 ml
- 20mg of liquid zinc per dose
- 2mg of liquid copper per dose
- Reverse Osmosis Water
Adults: 1/2 teaspoon with food to avoid a slight nausea that it can cause. Should only be taken for limited periods to support immune function.
Note: the body has trouble handling high doses of zinc for prolonged periods. It can disrupt the delicate balance among minerals.
Pico Zinc™ Plus is vegan, gluten free, and contains no yeast, dairy, egg, soy, wheat, sugar, starch, artificial flavors, artificial colors, artificial preservatives or animal byproducts.
