ZinCosa GI is an advanced gastric cytoprotective formula designed to support and maintain the integrity of the protective mucosal lining. It offers enhanced protection from unwanted absorption of sensitizing proteins such as gluten and casein. Zinc ions and l-carnosine are bound in a 1:1 ratio to create a chelated compound shown to be three times more effective than the individual ingredients alone. This superior chelation technology aids in replacing the nickel ion center of urease with zinc, thereby establishing a lower pH environment inhospitable to the growth of H. pylori. L-carnosine plays a protective role to the gastric mucosa by transporting zinc to damaged areas.
