Zinc is one of the most important nutrients for the human body, regardless of gender, age or life circumstance. Although adequate research is lacking on zinc status in Australia and New Zealanders, a literature review established that the at- risk groups for zinc deficiency are toddlers, adolescents (especially of Pacific and Aboriginal Ethnicities), institutionalised elderly and those suffering with diabetes.
ZInc is important for a number of physiological processes, including supporting wound healing (prevention of permanent scar tissue formation), immune function and hormone synthesis, amongest many other uses. In fact, zinc is essential for T Helper Cells, probably the most important cells in our immune system. Furthermore, clinical trials have demonstrated for decades that oral zinc supplementation is an effective remedy for improving wound healing, as one study showed in diabetic foot ulcer patients.
It has also been demonstrated that there is a strong correlation between zinc status and testosterone levels, with low zinc status associated with low testosterone in young and otherwise healthy men. Though testosterone is generally considered to be a male hormone this hormone is also important for women as well, where it supports sex drive, muscle mass and bone health.
Zinc inhibits activity of an enzyme called 5 alpha-reductase, responsible for the conversion of testosterone to dihydrotestosterone. This latter hormone has been linked to benign prostatic hyperplasia. Zinc is needed to support important antioxidant enzymes, called superoxide dismutase and metallothionein, making it an indirectly important antioxidant mineral.
Herbs of Gold Ultra Zinc is an exceptionally versatile and high-strength product that can assist with restoring zinc status, with the addition of cofactors to enhance the systemic zinc benefits.
