About Zinc Supplements

Zinc is a mineral that was discovered to be essential in plants nearly 100 years before it was found to be essential in humans! It is commonly used as a supplement throughout the winter months to support production of white blood cells, and the functioning of these cells in our defence against infectious invaders. When a high strength zinc supplement is used, it may even have an anti-viral effect. This means it can slow replication of the virus directly. This mineral really is a powerhouse, and is utilised for much more than colds and flues. We will touch on some of its uses beyond this standard prescription.



Zinc actually has an indirect antioxidant effect in the body, by supporting an antioxidant enzyme called superoxide dismutase. It is therefore essential in “fighting off” free radicals and maintaining cellular health. Zinc is exceptional for the healing of wounds and for preventing active stretch marks (recent purple-coloured ones) from becoming permanent. This is likely due to the fact that zinc is an essential cofactor for proteins that are involved in collagen synthesis.



Zinc is also required for hormone synthesis, including testosterone, progesterone and oestrogen. In addition, zinc has been shown to be helpful for the treatment of diarrhoea. Some of the best dietary sources include pepitas (pumpkin seeds), sesame seeds (tahini is nice!), cocoa and of course, the well-known aphrodisiac, oysters. Zinc supplements are a great way to restore levels back to normal, in the case of deficiency or insufficiency, or for use for a specific biological function.
