Adequate zinc levels are essential for the healthy functioning of every cell in our bodies. The beneficial effects of zinc are extensive because it is involved in so many enzyme and body functions. Zinc is essential for growth and physical development, and for the metabolism of proteins, fats, and carbohydrates. Most aspects of reproduction in both males and females require zinc. This mineral is also vitally important to the immune system. Practically every enzyme reaction in the brain involves zinc and so does the development and function of the central nervous system.
The highest concentrations of zinc are in the ear and eye. Some individuals are poor absorbers of this mineral but most cases of zinc deficiency are due to poor diet, chronic stress, vegetarianism, or excessive alcohol intake. Some deficiencies result from exposure to toxic metals, such as cadmium from cigarettes or excess copper from copper-lined tap water pipes.
Severe deficiency is associated with skin changes, diarrhea, hair loss, mental disturbances, and recurrent infec- tions as a result of impaired immune function.1 Marginal zinc deficiency may be manifested in poor wound healing, diabetes, prostate enlargement, cataracts, ulcers, food allergies, toxic metal accumulation, osteoporosis, decreased sense of taste or smell, skin disorders including acne, eczema, and psoriasis, and hearing impair- ments, and blood sugar imbalances.
