The secrets of zinc
This week, we’re talking all things Zinc!
Why we love zinc
Zinc is present in every cell in the body, and is our second-most-abundant trace mineral.
It’s critical for the development and function of immune cells and is fundamental to skin health.
Does zinc improve immunity?
Zinc supplements stimulate particular immune cells and reduce oxidative stress.
They can also significantly reduce the risk of infections and promote immune response in older adults.
Did you know that Zinc is needed for your senses of taste and smell?
One of the enzymes necessary for proper taste and smell is dependent on Zinc, so a deficiency can reduce the effectiveness of these senses.
Why zinc is important
It is estimated that around 2 billion people worldwide are deficient in zinc due to inadequate dietary intake.
Thinning hair and dry skin can be symptoms of zinc deficiency.
