Zinc Gluconate

Plain Language Summary

Alcohol can degrade the lining of the digestive system causing bacterial toxins to enter the body. Zinc can help prevent this damage.

Summary

Alcohol significantly increases the permeability of the gut to lipopolysaccharides. The LPS can travel to the liver and increase inflammation. Zinc can decrease the degradation of gut wall integrity on alcohol exposure. Zinc also modulates how the liver responds to inflammatory cytokines.
