Zinc is an essential element in the major metabolic pathways. Similarly, zinc in the body indicates that zinc has an important function in maintaining immune function, reproduction, healthy skin and growth. Numerous studies support the fundamental role of zinc in healthy immune response in humans. Immune cells must be able to rapidly divide to respond to immune challenges. Likewise, all rapidly dividing cells, immune cells depend on adequate amounts of dietary zinc. As a cofactor of the antioxidant superoxide dismutase (SOD), zinc is an antioxidant nutrient. Zinc supplementation increases the antioxidant activity of SOD, and provides an increase in free radical protection.

How zinc lozenges 23mg can help with zinc deficiency.

Zinc deficiency associates with an increase in oxidative damage. The absorption of toxic heavy metals, especially cadmium and lead, is lower in individuals with higher zinc status versus those with low zinc status. The body pool of readily available zinc appears to be small. Which renders the body susceptible to deficiency, and therefore, dependent on a steady dietary supply of bioavailable zinc. While typical zinc intake in U.S. adults is between 10-15 mg/day, intake of zinc in the elderly is often quite low. Pregnant women & their fetuses are also at risk for zinc deficiency, since they have a greater requirement for this trace element. Frequently, vegetarians & chronically depressed individuals have been found to have low zinc status. Finally, individuals who are dealing with stress, are immune challenged or are hospitalized will usually have low zinc levels.
