An essential mineral required by every cell in the body, zinc is concentrated in the muscles, bones, skin, kidneys, liver, pancreas, eyes, and, in men, the prostate.
What is Zinc?
Everyone needs zinc. This mineral fuels enzymes that do everything from manufacturing DNA to healing wounds. It?s a crucial component of a strong immune system, and it fights the common cold. Yet a surprising number of Americans don?t get enough of this vital nutrient.
An essential mineral required by every cell in the body, zinc is concentrated in the muscles, bones, skin, kidneys, liver, pancreas, eyes, and, in men, the prostate. It is plentiful in drinking water and in some foods, including meat. Because your body does not produce zinc, it depends on external sources for its supply.
Zinc and copper are considered essential trace minerals. Our Zinc is formulated with copper because it is important to take extra copper when using zinc for longer than a month, because zinc may interfere with copper absorption. Copper imbalances may lead to anemia and various other problems. Our Zinc is also chelated for easy absorption in the body.
What does Zinc do?
Zinc plays a critical role in hundreds of body processes -- from cell growth to sexual maturation and immunity, even for taste and smell. Consequently, everyone who takes a daily multivitamin and mineral supplement should be certain that it contains zinc.
Zinc exerts beneficial effects on various hormones, including the sex and thyroid hormones. It shows promise for enhancing fertility in both men and women. Zinc may also shrink an enlarged prostate. In addition, it may be effective for those with an underactive thyroid and, because it improves insulin levels.
Research indicates that Zinc may:
- support healthy immune fuction
- Boost fertility, build healthy hair, and diminish ringing in ears
Studies show that exercisers lose zinc in perspiration and urine. That may be one reason why, although moderate exercise boosts immunity, long bouts of intense exercise are linked with lower immunity.
Zinc may be especially beneficial for older people who are often deficient in this mineral, according to a recent study of 118 nursing home residents in Rome, Italy. Those given 25 mg of zinc daily for three months showed improved immune systems. Experts think zinc may revitalize the thymus gland, which manufactures immune cells.
Did you know? Almonds are a rich source of zinc for vegetarians, who may be deficient in it: 4 ounces provide about 6 mg - half the RDA of zinc for women.
