Do you want to take chances with your immune system this season?
As we head into the most challenging cold & flu season yet, it’s more important than ever to keep the immune system strong and healthy.
It’s especially important when in close proximity to people prone to sickness. And, the immune system gets weakened by stress, so it needs extra support.
Zinc is essential to immune function
Zinc plays a key role in the structure and function of the immune system. This essential mineral is required by hundreds of enzymes that control functions for immune response, vision, hearing, skin, hair, nails, connective tissue, sexual function, digestion, and more.
Hard to get from diet
One of the problems with getting zinc in your diet is that it’s no longer abundant in the soil. The body may absorb only 25% of the zinc that finds its way into your diet.
Vegetarian or near-vegetarian diets are lower in zinc. It is difficult for vegetarians to get enough zinc from food. The best food sources of zinc are meats, especially red meats which more and more people are cutting out of their diets.
Stress depletes zinc very quickly, within seconds. This is part of the body’s fight-or-flight response to stress – it burns up zinc. And it’s a chicken-and-egg thing: the lower your zinc levels, the more susceptible you are to stress factors. Keep zinc topped up for stress.
Hard to handle high doses
The body can’t handle high doses of zinc for long periods of time. High doses can disrupt the balance with other minerals in the body. Zinc can block the absorption of copper and manganese, for example. However, when modest amounts of zinc and copper are bioavailable and absorbed at the cellular level, they play very well together, enhancing each other’s functions.
Therefore, situations where sickness is more likely call for a highly absorbable zinc supplement that can top up the body’s zinc reserves without disturbing the balance of other minerals in the body.
We’ve Redefined Minerals. Again.
Introducing Pico-Zinc™ – a stabilized ion of zinc that is fully absorbed at the cellular level.
Using the same technology that created ReMag® and ReMyte®, we have created this revolutionary new zinc formula.
Pico-Zinc™ is created using a proprietary process that allows zinc to get into the cell without a chelation agent.
Pico-Zinc™ ions are smaller in diameter than the body’s cell mineral ion channels. Thus, it acts as its own ionophore and is completely absorbed across mineral channels and doesn’t require the 6 transporter proteins that normally facilitate the movement of zinc.
For those who require more zinc, as evidenced by zinc deficiency symptoms, we have created this concentrated zinc formula with an individual dose of 20mg per 1/2 tsp.
Pico-Zinc™ is vegan, gluten free, and contains no yeast, dairy, egg, soy, wheat, sugar, starch, artificial flavors, artificial colors, artificial preservatives or animal byproducts.
Pico-Zinc™ consists pure zinc. No additives, no chelation agents.
Pico Zinc is a stabilized ion of zinc that is fully absorbed at the cellular level. The zinc ions of Pico Zinc are derived from zinc lactate originally sourced from zinc salts mined in East Texas, USA.
Benefits of Pico-Zinc™
- Fully absorbed at the cellular level
- Contains no chelation agent – only pure zinc.
- Delivers 20 mgs of zinc per 1/2 tsp serving
Pico-Zinc™ is ideal for individuals who:
- spend time around people prone to sickness
- are deficient in zinc
- experience high or frequent stress

Dr. Carolyn Dean is a medical doctor and naturopath, and the author of over 35 books including best seller The Magnesium Miracle along with IBS for Dummies, Hormone Balance, and Death by Modern Medicine. In 2011, she launched RnA ReSet and brought her 50 years of experience into the development of proprietary, unique formulations that give every individual at any stage of wellness or illness the building blocks for sustained health, vitality and well-being.
For years, Dr. Dean has been recommending highly bioavailable minerals as the most effective to support the structure and function of the immune system. When manufacturers would not produce minerals sufficiently small enough to fully penetrate into cells, she realized she had to create her own. The result is the line of picometer mineral formulas available through this site.

What customers say about Pico-Zinc™
I’ve been using tonic water with quinine and taking zinc capsule the past couple months for preventative. That bothered my stomach a lot. So I’m very happy to find Pico-Zinc™ is almost tasteless and I just take 1/4 tsp daily in water and have no stomach issues.
–Sue S. (Verified Buyer)
I work in a hospital and take zinc everyday for my immune system
Stores here are still sold out of zinc. I found some ionic zinc months ago but the bottle was tiny. I am happy that Dr. Dean made pico zinc so now I have everyone one in the family take a shot of Pico-Zinc™ everyday.
–Heather S. (Verified Buyer)
For over a year, I've had a mysterious skin rash come and go - on my face. UGH. I've had perfectly clear skin my whole life so this was disturbing, for sure. I went to a dermatologist, got several different creams and even a prescription - nothing was working. I started using a test bottle of Pico-Zinc™ and within a few days my skin rash cleared - never to return!!! What a delightful surprise. I did some research and found out how powerful zinc is for skin rashes and wound care.

Frequently Asked Questions
What type of zinc is in this? I heard that zinc orotate is the most easily absorbed.
Pico-Zinc™ contains zinc lactate, 20mgs per ½ tsp serving. However, it’s not the zinc compound that’s important, it’s the absorption. Zinc is a mineral that is not readily absorbed into cells. However, our proprietary process creates stabilized picometer-sized zinc ions, which ensures full absorption at the cellular level. Apart from the high absorption, you require a much lower dosage, only half (or less) of another zinc product.
Can zinc cause copper deficiency?
High doses of zinc are not recommended due to the imbalance that is caused in other minerals. Zinc can block the absorption of copper. However, when modest amounts of zinc and copper are bioavailable and absorbed at the cellular level, they play very well together, enhancing each other’s functions. That defines our ReMyte product.
What is the expiration date for Pico Zinc?
2 ½ years after the date of manufacture.
How often do I take it?
We recommend taking 1/8th to ¼ tsp daily (15-30 drops) as a preventive measure and up to 1 tsp a day during a viral attack.
How do I take it?
Adults place your serving (as defined above) in water, juice or a smoothie and consume accordingly. Best taken with food. May be mixed with our other liquid mineral solutions (ReMag® and ReMyte®).
What does it taste like?
This is an important question. Historically if you are deficient in zinc, you won’t taste it or it tastes a bit sweet. If you don’t “need” it, the taste will be metallic.
Does this need to be refrigerated?
This product does not need to be refrigerated.
Is this product synthetic?
The zinc ions of Pico-Zinc™ are derived from zinc lactate originally sourced from naturally-occurring zinc salts mined in Texas, USA.
Is this product safe for children?
Pico Zinc is safe for adults age 12+. For children, please work with your family doctor or health care provider. Also, you can refer you to the government issued RDAs (recommended daily allowance).
Is this chelated zinc?
Because it is difficult for the body to efficiently absorb zinc on its own, zinc is often attached to a chelating agent. A chelating agent is a substance that bonds with zinc to create a more absorbable end product. However, the picometer stabilized ions in Pico-Zinc™ are small enough, with the right electrical charge in order to pass into the cell without requiring a chelating agent.
Why does your zinc cost more than other zinc supplements?
Our proprietary process creates picometer-sized stabilized zinc ions that are fully absorbed at the cellular level. Pico-Zinc™ is also highly concentrated with a full 20mg dose in ½ tsp. This means your body absorbs Pico-Zinc™ more efficiently compared to other formulas. The absorption and concentration makes our 20mg dose at least equivalent to a 40mg dose.
Does Pico-Zinc™ cause nausea like other zinc supplements?
Please take it with meals because Pico-Zinc™ historically has been known to cause slight nausea if taken alone. However at the dosage of 1/8 -1/4 tsp, we have not had reports of nausea if taken alone or with ReMag and ReMyte.
Are these tested for heavy metals?
Yes, our Certificate of Analysis that is done on every lot number clears Pico-Zinc™ of contamination with heavy metals and bacterial organisms.
