Zinc Review

Zinc Review Zinc is a metal regarded to be an "essential trace element" since only very small amounts are necessary for human health. It is found to be important for numerous body processes ralting to immune function, wound healing, blood clotting, thyroid function, and many more. It helps form many enzymes and proteins and creates new cells and frees vitamin A from storage in the liver. Zinc also plays a vital role in maintaining vision and deficiency can alter vision and cause changes in the retina. When taken with certain antioxidants, zinc may delay the progression of age-related macular degeneration. Because vegetarians absorb less zinc, experts suggest that they get twice the recommended requirement of zinc from plant foods. Food sources of Zinc include meat, seafood, nuts, legumes, dairy products, and whole grains. Zinc is categorized under Minerals.
