What Is Zinc?

Zinc is a mineral and is the second most abundant trace element (after iron) found in the human body. This essential nutrient cannot be produced or stored by the body, and so we must include it in our diets on a daily basis, either through food or supplements. Present in every cell, zinc is required for the effective action of over 300 enzymes which help with bodily functions including metabolism, digestion and nerve function.

What does Zinc do?

Zinc has many benefits and is needed for several biological processes including:

  • Wound healing;
  • Creating new cells;
  • Creating new enzymes;
  • Processing proteins, fats and carbohydrates in foods;
  • Healthy growth and development.

It is also vital for the development of the immune system, as well as healthy body growth and development.
