Apollo’s Hegemony Z-balance Lite is a dietary supplement containing zinc in the form of picolinate and copper in the form of gluconate. These are forms characterized by high bioavailability. Zinc and copper are vital, synergistic trace elements.
Zinc is an essential micronutrient for the system. It affects the functioning of approx. 300 enzymes involved in the biochemical transformation nutrients. Zinc together with copper form zinc-copper superoxide dismutase, an enzyme with strong antioxidant activity.
Copper is an essential trace element. Copper is found most abundantly in the brain, skeletal muscle, and liver. Copper affects the proper functioning of the nervous system. As an antioxidant participates in maintaining the redox balance in the body and participates in the synthesis of collagen and elastin, which results in an improved condition of skin, hair, and nails.
Zinc is necessary for the synthesis of insulin. Zinc ions are present in β-cells of the pancreas and affect the release of insulin. Zinc deficiency may lead to the impaired tolerance of tissues to glucose. Besides, due to the inhibitory action of zinc on 3β glycogen synthase (GSK3β), it may positively affect insulin signaling.
Zinc contributes to the proper functioning of the immune system. As studies show, it also has some antiviral potential. Zinc is important for the development of both cellular and humoral immune responses, thus helping to increase the body's resistance to infection.
Nervous system support
Zinc occurs most abundantly in the brain. The zinc ions present in the vicinity of pre-synaptic endings modulate synaptic transmission. Therefore, zinc deficiency is associated with impaired neurotransmission and the development of nervous system defects during fetal development. There are reports pointing to the possible effect of zinc in protecting the brain from neurodegenerative processes.
Healthy hair, skin, and nails
Zinc and copper participate in the metabolism of collagen, fatty acids, and the synthesis of prostaglandins, affecting the secretory functions of the skin. Zinc affects the regeneration of the skin and wound healing, and its deficiency adversely affects the functioning of the skin's immune system. The right level of zinc in the body is essential for the growth of hair and nails.
In conclusion, Apollo's Hegemony Z-balance is a product supplying vital minerals in optimal amounts. The product is recommended especially to athletes and physically active people, people on a vegetable diet, to improve the condition of skin, hair, and nails, strengthen immunity and antioxidant protection of the body, and as part of the pro-health prophylaxis.
Preparations containing zinc should be combined with vitamin E which shows synergism of antioxidant activity.
In order to support the functioning of the nervous system, it is worth combining with a preparation containing magnesium in a well absorbable form (e.g. magnesium citrate).
Zinc competes with copper in absorption processes, which is why zinc supplementation may reduce copper absorption. Hence, to avoid deficiencies, zinc-containing preparations should be "balanced" by the simultaneous presence of copper.
