Zinc is a mineral, necessary for almost 100 enzymes to carry out vital chemical reactions in our body. It is a major player in the creation of DNA, growth of cells, building proteins, healing damaged tissue, and supporting a healthy immune system. As it helps cells to grow and multiply, adequate zinc is required during times of rapid growth, such as childhood, adolescence, and pregnancy.
- Disease prevention – Zinc is responsible for activating a type of white blood cell called a T lymphocyte (T-cell). These cells are central to your body’s immune defense. Some are “killer” T-cells that neutralize pathogens like bacteria, viruses, or fungi. Others are “helper” T-cells that direct the assault of an infection or cancer.
- Wound healing – Adequate zinc is needed to create new cells, particularly collagen and fiber-like tissues, a necessary function in repairing damaged cells. Zinc also supports immune cell activity that combats inflammation from a wound.
