Zinc is one of the essential minerals‚ substances like calcium‚ iron‚ and more‚ that our body needs in order to function properly and keep us alive; however‚ the catch is that we can't synthesize (or produce) them naturally in our body. This means that we must get the proper amount of zinc through our diet. Food sources of zinc include spinach‚ seafood (like cooked oysters)‚ beef and lamb‚ as well as much more. But if your diet is poor (featuring many nutritional gaps) or if you have a certain medical condition‚ it may affect both your zinc levels and possibly zinc absorption.
If you feel like you aren't getting enough zinc from your diet‚ consult with your healthcare practitioner to see if a zinc supplement like Nutri West's Zinc Chelate is right for you.
Zinc concentrations in the human body are high in the prostate‚ muscles‚ bones‚ liver‚ kidney‚ and eyes. As such‚ it is believed that this essential mineral may support the health of these organs. Research and studies suggests that this may be most prominent for ocular health‚ since the highest zinc concentration is in the eyes.
Zinc levels also play a role in certain enzyme reactions within the body.
Zinc is also well known as possibly helping boost the immune system‚ which is why it's often featured in many cold and flu treatments. Additionally‚ the zinc in Zinc Chelate may help with would healing.
Zinc Chelate is also formulated with a number of organ tissue concentrates like liver‚ heart‚ kidney‚ pituitary‚ pancreas‚ and more.

High doses of zinc can interfere with immune function (this formula has only 16 mg zinc chelate). Shils and Young report the level of zinc that interferes with copper absorption (associated with copper deficiency and anemia) is a long-term‚ chronic ingestion of 150 mg/day (Shils M and Young V. eds. Modern Nutrition in Health and Disease. 1988 7th ed. Lea and Febiger‚ Philadelphia‚ Pa.). Michael Murray advises against a daily intake greater than 150 mg for more than a week‚ but stresses that zinc supplementation can effectively enhance the immune system.
