Immune Health – ZINC – Body of Work

The Trace Mineral with a Major Role

Zinc is a trace mineral that plays a role in over 300 enzymes in the body. DNA synthesis, RNA transcription, cell division and growth, testosterone synthesis, and protein formation and turnover are all dependent on the presence of Zinc. Zinc also supports energy metabolism, the immune system, memory and skin health.

A study found that Zinc supplements positively supported immune response, by helping stimulate levels of lymphocytes and T-cells.

Another clinical study found that a low intake of Zinc negatively affected both testosterone levels and normal semen production, while a higher intake of Zinc positively supported both testosterone and semen in men.
