Zinc is responsible for wound healing, our metabolism and tissue repair. It is only required in small amounts, however most of us are deficient. A deficiency could be responsible for many conditions and illnesses – could you be deficient?
Zinc is an essential required by the body, and is responsible for over 200 different functions. Though zinc is a heavy metal, we all require a small amount in our diet; however, most of us simply don’t get enough.
Zinc is such a critical element in human health that even a small deficiency can be disastrous to our health. Zinc is essential for cell division and the synthesis of DNA and protein. Involved in hundreds of enzymatic processes, zinc is pivotal for the metabolism of protein, carbohydrate, fat and alcohol.
Zinc is well known for its role in tissue growth, wound healing, connective tissue growth and maintenance and immune system function. A zinc deficiency may lead to slow poor healing of cuts, scraps and abrasions, as well as reduced blood clotting capacity. Zinc is also essential for proper thyroid function, brain function, fetal growth and sperm production.
