Zinc is one of the foundations of a healthy, working body. It may not share the spotlight with nutrients like Calcium and vitamin C, but it is equally important! Zinc is a nutrient that occurs naturally in food and is found within cells throughout the body. It aids in the proper function of many of the body’s internal systems, such as the immune, digestive, and reproductive systems!

Benefits of Zinc Supplementation
The amount of zinc each person requires is dependent on many factors such as age, sex, as well as pregnancy. The best way to know for sure is to consult with a professional who can discuss a supplement regimen with you! Below is a list of the ways that zinc can help support your body’s proper function.
Supports Immune System Function
Zinc allows for the creation and prevalence of neutrophils and killer cells, enabling your immune system to remain active and ensure it has the resources to fight off viral and bacterial invaders that seek to take hold in your body. Having a strong immune system can mean all the difference between you being healthy and the extent of how ill you become.
Now more than ever, a functioning and strong immune system is critically important to maintaining your good health. This small step can be the preemptive measure that keeps you healthy!
Enhance Digestion and Metabolism
Zinc also has a profound effect on the efficiency of your digestion of important vitamins, minerals, carbohydrates, and other essential nutrients. Proper digestion is critically important in ensuring that your body absorbs and distributes vitamins and nutrients efficiently.
Promotes Reproductive Health
Zinc is a very important nutrient during pregnancy, infancy, and childhood. The body needs zinc for proper growth and continued development as it is critical for adding stability to cell membranes and other structural foundations.
According to the NIH Zinc is an integral part of the wound healing process. It is responsible for repairing damaged cell membranes, allowing coagulation of blood, inflammation and immune defense, skin regeneration, as well as scar formation.
Zinc supplements should be taken an hour before or after eating, although if you are experiencing an upset stomach after taking Zinc tablets, you may take them with meals!
You should always follow the directions listed on the container unless advised otherwise by your healthcare provider. In the case that your doctor gives you specific instructions, do not deviate from them as these instructions may be specific to your unique needs and the general information found elsewhere may not apply to you!
