THE ULTIMATE IMMUNE SYSTEM BOOSTER
If you Google zinc you will find everything you need to know about one the most important industrial metals. 7 million tonnes of zinc is used every day in all areas of the construction industry. From erosion resistant pipes to rainwater drainage systems, this light-weight metal offers maximum strength & malleability. The same galvanised metal is also incredibly important for human health, especially for the immune system. Having abundant zinc in the human system ensures recovery from a bad cold several days earlier. Additionally, Zinc heals wounds and keeps the skin healthy while at the same time preserving eyesight and offering a sharp memory.
Over 200 different enzymes in the human body depend on zinc to work properly. For example, you need zinc to make the enzyme alcohol dehydrogenase, which breaks down alcohol in the system. If you are deficient in zinc, your body cannot process alcohol properly and you get drunk far too easily and have stronger hangovers.
Zinc produces hormones that signal the immune system about when, where and how to attack the germs. Zinc is also an essential component in controlling growth in humans. In males zinc is a building block for testosterone production and essential for normal reproductive function. Every single cell in your body contains small amounts of zinc but most of is found in your skin, nails and hair. Deficiency in zinc cause stunted growth in young individuals preventing them to grow to their full potential.
