Zinc and the immune system
Zinc is present in every cell in the body and is also a component of over 200 enzymes. Actually‚ zinc is involved in more enzymatic reactions than any other mineral constituent in mammals.
Zinc is essential for normal skin‚ vision‚ smell‚ taste‚ reproduction‚ brain development‚ protein synthesis and wound healing. It is also one of the most important factors in a healthy immune system. Zinc is involved in just about every aspect of immunity‚ including the immune enhancing “T” cells that are necessary for immune response.
The best sources of zinc are shellfish‚ fish‚ and red meats‚ with oysters being the richest source. Substantial amounts are also found in certain plant foods such as whole grains‚ legumes‚ nuts‚ mushrooms and some herbs. The zinc from plant sources is not absorbed well because it binds to a fiber compound in plant seeds called phytic acid to form an insoluble zinc-phytate complex that cannot be assimilated.
A study published in 1997 in the Journal of the American College of Nutrition reported that Chinese children receiving 20 mg. of zinc supplementation daily scored 10-15% higher on educational tests than unsupplemented children.
Why might an individual be deficient in zinc?
Zinc levels in the body may be lowered by the following conditions:
• fiber consumption‚ which causes zinc excretion through the intestinal tract
• high calcium and iron consumption
• copper ingestion
• liver or kidney disease and

Overall Rating for Zinc Liquid 8 fl. oz (237 ml)
I bought Zinc Liquid to increase my daughterss appetite. We changed a couple things at once so I cant say if it was totally responsible for her increased appetite but it probably contributed. I mixed 5 ml with her liquid Animal Parade vitamins and my daughter couldnt tell and she is very picky. Shipment arrived quickly too.
√ I would recommend this item to a friend.
