Helps to maintain immune function.
Zinc is an essential antioxidant mineral that is found in almost every cell. It is important to overall health and particularly insulin production, hormone regulation, male fertility, eye health, skin health and immune function. Although our zinc levels are difficult to measure because of how zinc is distributed throughout the body, it is likely that a significant percentage of adults in North America have marginal or inadequate zinc intake. Signs of deficiency include white spots on finger nails, hang nails, hair loss, dry skin, frequent colds, poor wound healing, and acne. The risk of sub-optimal zinc levels increases in the elderly, vegetarians and vegans, people with digestive or gastro-intestinal conditions, those with kidney or liver disease, as well as in pregnant and lactating women. In addition, high-dose iron, and common drugs including antibiotics and diuretics negatively affect zinc levels.
