Did you ever imagine that a deficiency of an essential element can cause your immune system to weaken and can in fact affect some vital organs of your body? That’s exactly what’s happening with a myriad of people battling the current pandemic. Is there something that can help? The answer is Zinc. Zinc has the ability to fight oxidative damage to cell membranes which leads to skin issues, improper functioning of cellular metabolism, and muscle loss. It also helps with the breaking down of carbohydrates.
Zinc is a micronutrient found in cells throughout the body and is released from food as free ions during digestion. Zinc supports a number of functions in the human body. While it supports the immune system, it enables the body to make proteins and DNA, contributes to wound healing, and plays a role in childhood growth and development. It also has antioxidant properties.
Compared to adults, infants, children, adolescents, pregnant, and lactating women have increased requirements for zinc.
