Zinc is an essential mineral required by the body on a daily basis. A sufficient amount of zinc is necessary for proper immune system function and numerous other vital body processes. Common food sources of zinc include oysters, oats, pumpkin seeds, eggs, nuts, meat and peas. According to several university research studies, zinc supplementation may be highly beneficial to boost immunity and support formation of healthy tissue.
InVite Health formulates Zinc supplements in a convenient lozenge form. Zinc’s absorption process into the body is complex, as it requires the zinc to pass through the intestinal membranes, into the blood stream, and finally into each individual cell. When taken in the lozenge form, the body can reap the benefits of zinc more quickly. Zinc is a great nutrient for healing skin and tissues including the stomach, eyes, immune cells and more.
The global prevalence of zinc deficiency has been estimated to be 31% with national figures ranging widely between 4-73%. While zinc deficiency in the USA is considered rare, mild to moderate zinc deficiency may be more common due to a high prevalence of inadequate zinc in the daily diet. Zinc deficiency symptoms in children include growth and development problems, and in all ages hair loss, diarrhea, impotence, eye and skin conditions, and loss of smell, taste and appetite loss. Other symptoms may include weight loss, poor or delayed wound healing, taste changes, and mental slowness. Zinc can be measured in plasma, red blood cells, white blood cells, and hair. Excess intake of zinc depletes copper levels. If copper level is high, zinc supplementation can lower it.
Zinc plays a role in normal physiological mechanisms of the body, including immune function, protein synthesis, tissue health, DNA synthesis, and cell division. It is also required for various aspects of cellular metabolism, including the synthesis of approximately 100 enzymes in the body. Zinc supports normal growth and development as well – this mineral is particularly important for women to consume during pregnancy. If you are deficient in zinc, you may experience acne, bad breath, macular degeneration, stomach ulcers, slow-healing wounds, frequent infections, loss of taste and smell, and decreased appetite.
