Zinc is an essential micronutrient required for many enzyme reactions and bodily functions. It is essential for growth and physical development, and for the metabolism of proteins, fats, and carbohydrates. Unfortunately, zinc deficiency is common, especially in the elderly. A zinc deficiency may play a role in many chronic diseases but it is best known for its pivotal role in the immune system. It is essential for the function of white blood cells to protect the body from invasion by bacteria and viruses and to regulate inflammation and wound healing. Zinc is also a key factor in the healing of the digestive lining, which in many people is damaged and “leaky”. Clinically, zinc supplementation has been shown to be vital for prostate health.
While the importance of zinc is becoming more recognized, copper’s crucial role in our health has often been overlooked. Over supplementation with zinc by itself can result in copper deficiency, which can have serious implications for your long-term health.
