Zinc

 

How does it work?

Zinc is an essential trace mineral required for the synthesis of any new tissue in the body, hence it being important for growth and development, immunity, neurological function and reproduction.1 Zinc deficiency is common and those at risk are pregnant or lactating women, children and adolescence due to increased growth, those with strict or limiting diets, and those with chronic fluid loss due to sweating in athletes, or diarrhoea from illness.2 Zinc is used to treat deficiency or those at risk, as well as improving immunity, slow wound healing and skin disorders, infertility and depression.3 In adult males, zinc content is high in the prostate and testis therefore is important for improving male fertility and hormonal status.4 Zinc is also involved in the metabolism of androgen hormones, oestrogen and progesterone in both male and females therefore may assist in hormone related conditions.5

What results can be expected?

Zinc is useful to treat and prevent deficiency as well as improve conditions such as compromised immune system due to infection, skin disorders such as acne or poor wound healing, infertility or hormonal conditions in both men and women, and depression.6 Zinc has also shown to be helpful in improving symptoms associated with the common cold, diabetes, Crohn’s disease, ADHD,  and tinnitus.7
