What is Zinc?

Zinc is an essential trace mineral that is plays a vital role in keeping the body healthy. As zinc is an essential mineral, it must be obtained through the diet.  Zinc has a number of roles in the body including aiding the immune system, supporting growth, cell division and wound healing. Zinc is also a very common ingredient in many cold remedies. The body has no way of storing zinc, meaning it must be consumed daily

What are good sources of Zinc?

Zinc is found in every cell and next to iron it is the most common mineral in the body. Zinc is naturally found in a number of foods including seafood, meats, wheat germ and spinach. The bioavailability of zinc is much lower in plant foods and so the best form in zinc is from animal sources. Zinc is also fortified in many foods including cereals.

What happens if I am deficient in Zinc?

A deficiency in zinc can cause a number of symptoms including loss of appetite, impaired immune function, poor growth, weight loss and skin problems. It can be very difficult to ensure your body is receiving the correct nutrients in the correct amount, particularly with nutrients that cannot be stored in the body. Supplementation is an easy way to help your body receive the nutrients it needs.
