How Zinc Works (And Why You Need It)

1 in 5 people live with the negative side effects of Zinc deficiency.

Zinc is an essential nutrient … which unfortunately means we don’t naturally produce it or store it. Diet and supplements are the only way to receive Zinc, making it an easy-to-miss ingredient in our life. But the side effects of Zinc deficiency are serious, subtle and overall unpleasant. 

So how does Zinc affect us? 

Strengthens Immunity

Zinc activates the T Cells, which are the headquarters for immune response. Studies have shown that the consumption of Zinc within just 24 hours of cold symptoms can a). Cut the duration of the illness and b). Reduce the severity of symptoms. 

Stimulates Insulin

Fatigue, diabetes and weight-gain can all stem from a deficiency in Insulin. Because Insulin is responsible for converting glucose into energy, even the slightest dips in its levels can take a toll on the body. 

Heals Wounds

The serum levels in Zinc promote recovery and help repair damage to tissue. If you’ve noticed your body is slow to seal cuts, scab or wash out bruises, you could be experiencing a Zinc deficiency. 

Triggers Cell Growth & Division

Similar to the strengthening of the Immune System, Zinc promotes the growth of cells like T cells, NK cells and the macrophage (a critical cell in your body's immunologic functions). Good cell health starts with restoring and maintaining proper Zinc levels. 

Promotes Growth

During periods of extensive growth (children - adolescents), Zinc is critical for the proper development of the immune, central nervous, reproductive, gastrointestinal and reproductive systems. Stunted growth and malfunctioning in the previously listed systems are closely linked to Zinc deficiency.
