Although it is present in all the body’s tissues and is crucial to numerous body functions, from immune support to protein synthesis, most of the zinc in food is lost in processing. Zinc plays a role in energy production, speeds up would healing, helps the body use the stress-busting B vitamins, regulates the male hormone, testosterone, helps the body break down alcohol, helps maintain the body’s acid/alkaline balance, works to regulate the production of oil by the skin and is essential for healthy taste buds. Signs of zinc deficiency: White flecks on the fingernails, menstrual problems, acne, recurring infections, slow wound healing, stretch marks on the skin, loss of taste or smell. Synergistic Zinc supports immunity, fertility, hair, nails and skin.
Provides zinc and copper which work synergistically and contribute to the normal function of the immune system and the protection of cells from oxidative stress. Zinc also contributes to the maintenance of normal hair, nails and skin, promoting general wound, ulceration and scar healing. It plays a role in fertility and reproduction, is needed for normal growth. Low levels of zinc may contribute to infertility, hormonal imbalances, poor wound healing and increased susceptibility to infection.
Copper is another trace mineral essential to human health. Copper works in balance with zinc and should be taken alongside it in supplementation. Copper is required in small quantities and is needed for immunity, growth and healing. Long term or high dose supplementation of zinc alone fails to address the natural balance of trace minerals and can trigger copper deficiency.
