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. This mineral can be obtained by consuming foods such as oysters, red meat and beans. However, most individuals in the United States consume less than recommended amounts, so supplementation may be a great option.†
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. Supplementation of Zinc also supports skin health and healthy tissues, including the stomach, eyes, and immune cells. Zinc supports normal growth and development as well. This mineral supplement is particularly important for women to consume during pregnancy.†
Zinc's absorption process into the body is complex, as it requires the zinc to pass through the intestinal membranes, into the bloodstream, and finally into each individual cell. When taken in lozenge form, the body can reap the benefits of Zinc more quickly.†

The Science Behind Zinc
Research from The Journal of Nutrition states that zinc is an essential mineral for the health and proper function of the immune system and cells. Absorption and loss has a great deal to do with why some populations become deficient. A study done involving human subjects found certain forms of zinc supplements were more efficiently absorbed than others. There was a significantly higher absorption of zinc from zinc citrate and zinc gluconate. The absorption of zinc citrate did not differ from that of zinc gluconate. 
Research in Nutrients states that zinc supplementation can help to support immune system function and modulate inflammation in humans. Zinc is essential for the signaling pathways of white blood cell signaling done by the immune system, especially neutrophils. It is also involved in controlling oxidative stress and regulating inflammatory cytokines. Zinc plays an important function during an immune response and its balance is critical for maintaining proper immune function. 
Research in the International Journal of Environmental Research and Public Health states how zinc contributes to human health. Zinc influences apoptosis by acting on several regulators of programmed cell death, including caspases and proteins. One organ where zinc is especially involved in cell death is the brain, so zinc supplementation was found to support the health and function of the brain.
