What is zinc?
Doctors and nutritionists have long known that zinc is required by the human body to maintain good health and wellbeing. The body uses zinc to strengthen the immune system and protect the body from oxidative damage. What’s more, when taken at the first signs of cold or flu, zinc supplements may help to reduce the severity and duration of symptoms. If you have a weak immune system and are prone to colds and flu then you may find zinc supplements to be beneficial. Zinc tablets have also shown promise in healing canker sores.
Additional benefits of zinc
Zinc also plays a vital role in cell growth, cell regeneration, and collagen production. As a result, it can help to repair damaged tissues and accelerate wound healing. Zinc supplements have become extremely popular as natural remedies for many different skin conditions.
This essential trace mineral also contributes to normal brain function, healthy vision, and male and female fertility and reproduction. For men, zinc supplements can help to support testosterone production and the health of the prostate. Therefore, maintaining a diet that meets the RDA of zinc is essential for young and mature men.
Why take zinc supplements?
Experts estimate that 1 in 3 adults in the UK do not receive the recommended intake of zinc on a daily basis. This means that many people are at risk of a mild zinc deficiency, which can weaken the immune system, slow wound healing, and even impair our sense of taste and smell.
Simply Supplements GMP approved Zinc 15mg is a premium quality mineral supplement. We have selected Zinc Citrate as it provides one of the highest concentrations of zinc by weight and is zinc in its most bioavailable form.
