Zinc has several functions and health benefits.
Zinc is an antioxidant that provides immune support and plays a role in over 300 enzymes in the body.
It assists in the formation of DNA, the cell's genetic material, and is essential for cell division and growth. Zinc offers additional benefits as it assists in the proper functioning of the hormone insulin.
Zinc is in every cell of the body and is a part of over 200 enzyme systems. Essential for the maintenance of vision, taste and smell, this mineral is also necessary for immune function, reproductive health, protein synthesis and cell growth. It is also required for the activity of antioxidant enzyme super-oxidise dismutase.
Marginal zinc deficiency has been linked to decreased sense of taste and smell, eating disorders and impaired immune function. Good dietary sources of zinc include lean meat and poultry, eggs, fish, oysters, wheat bran soybeans and whole grains.
