Apollo’s Hegemony Z-balance is a dietary supplement that contains zinc (as zinc picolinate) and copper (as copper gluconate), a synergistic combination of two important trace elements in the organism. According to studies, zinc picolinate shows better absorption than other forms. One package consist of 180 vegetarian capsules.
Higher zinc intakes may affect copper absorption, therefore zinc supplements should be balanced by copper to maintain a healthy zinc-copper balance.
Zinc is required for the optimum function of as many as 300 enzymes, which are involved in the metabolism of proteins, nucleic acids, carbohydrates and lipids. Zinc acts as a prosthetic group for several enzymes called metalloproteins, one of which is the Superoxide Dismustase enzyme, a key endogenous antioxidant with powerful antinflammatory activity, involving both zinc and copper.
Zinc is needed to balance most hormones, including insulin. Therefore it helps normalize parameters of glucose metabolism. Zinc may positively influence insulin signaling via preventing a negative regulator (GSK3β) from suppressing insulin signaling. Also it can augment uptake of glucose into cells that express insulin-sensitive GLUT4 (e.g. muscle tissue).
Zinc is an essential element important for the immune system. It is crucial for normal development and function of cells mediating nonspecific and acquired immunity. Zinc deficiency showed an impaired immune function. Supplementation of zinc daily as a preventative appears to reduce the rate of getting colds.
Zinc may increase the fertility of men who are infertile and have low testosterone levels. According to studies, zinc supplementation could significantly increase the sperm quality.
Zinc deficiency is one of the more common micronutrient deficiencies in athletes, vegetarians/vegans, and those who sweat a ton.
Copper is an essential trace mineral that is used in a variety of processes in the body. The major function for copper is in catalyzing oxidation-reduction reactions. Copper deficiency may manifest by features such as vascular lesions, bone lesions and central nervous system disorder.
To sum up, Apollo’s Hegemony Z-balance is a dietary supplement that provides essential minerals and powerful antioxidants, supports immune health, glucose metabolism and daily wellness.
