What is Zinc?
Zinc is an essential trace mineral that plays a vital role in keeping the body healthy. Zinc helps keep the immune system healthy and supports growth, cell division and would healing. Zinc is also a common ingredient in many cold remedies. Zinc is a very powerful antioxidant, which helps the body fight free radicals. It is found in every cell and is naturally found in a number of foods including seafood, meats, wheat germ and spinach. The body has no way of storing zinc, meaning it must be consumed daily. Because of this it can be very difficult to ensure your body is receiving enough zinc. A deficiency in zinc can cause a number of symptoms including loss of appetite, impaired immune function, poor growth, and skin problems. Supplementation is a great way of helping you ensure your body is receiving all the nutrients it needs.
