- Helps to maintain immune function.
This mighty trace mineral plays a crucial role in the body’s immune and detoxification processes, and is involved in over 300 enzymatic reactions. It helps to maintain healthy blood sugar levels by stabilizing insulin and works to keep your thyroid functioning as it should. Zinc also pitches in when it comes to reproductive health, wound healing, growth, taste, vision, and smell. A lot of big jobs for one unassuming mineral to take on!
When it comes to colds and flus, a good zinc supplement should be within reach-beside the box of tissues, of course. Zinc is thought to prevent the rhinovirus (a common cold virus) from multiplying in the upper respiratory system.
Keeping the body topped up with adequate zinc is especially important for seniors, people with gastrointestinal disorders, vegetarians, pregnant/nursing women and those who take diuretics and oral contraceptives.
