Zinc deficiency affects 30% of the world’s population, and mood swings are reportedly common symptoms of mild zinc deficiency among women. In men, zinc deficiencies are often associated with problems in producing testosterone and healthy sperm. Men need more zinc than women which is why we have more zinc in our Total Balance Men’s formulas.
Also, different forms of zinc follow different metabolic pathways. In the Total Balance Men’s formulas we use the standard ‘citrate’ form but add the ‘acetate’ form which targets the prostate which is the area of greatest deficiency for men.
