Summary:

Zinc is an essential micromineral, found in all organs, tissues and body fluids. It is primarily an intracellular mineral and is required for the activity of several hundred enzyme systems of the human body.

Zinc citrate is an easily absorbed form of zinc, consisting of 30.3% zinc bound to 69.7% citric acid.

It is recognised that zinc is well absorbed from milk, and while part of this high bioavailability may be due to milk proteins, it is also possible that low molecular weight anions (e.g. citrate) bind with zinc and facilitate its absorption.

Citrate is present in human milk and may therefore bind a significant part of zinc in the milk. It has been shown that the addition of citrate to milk proteins significantly increases zinc absorption from those proteins.

Another animal study has demonstrated supplemental zinc citrate to be utilised better than picolinate and sulfate forms.
