Zinc is a trace mineral, meaning that the body only needs small amounts, and yet it is necessary for almost 100 enzymes to carry out vital chemical reactions. It is a major player in the creation of DNA, growth of cells, building proteins, healing damaged tissue, and supporting a healthy immune system.
What Does Zinc Do for Your Body?
CONTRIBUTES TO NORMAL FERTILITY AND REPRODUCTION.
Zinc citrate is one of the minerals needed by the body to ensure the proper functioning of the reproductive system. It helps to preserve fertility. This is because zinc helps in the process of sperm formation. Zinc deficiency in the body may lead to low sperm count.
CONTRIBUTES TO THE MAINTENANCE OF NORMAL BONES.
Zinc has a stimulatory effect on osteoblastic bone formation and mineralization. Zinc acts as a coenzyme that directly activates aminoacyl-tRNA synthetase a rate-limiting enzyme at the translational process of protein synthesis, in the cells, and it stimulates cellular protein synthesis. This helps to produce strong bones.
CONTRIBUTES TO THE MAINTENANCE OF NORMAL SKIN, HAIR, AND NAILS.
Another importance of zinc is that it helps in the formation of the skin and some of its derived structures like nails and hairs. Zinc plays an important role in hair tissue growth and repair. It also helps keep the oil glands around the follicles working properly.
CONTRIBUTES TO THE MAINTENANCE OF NORMAL TESTOSTERONE LEVELS IN THE BLOOD.
Another beneficial effect of zinc is that it helps to maintain the normal testosterone levels of the reproductive system. Zinc citrate can be used to treat low testosterone.
CONTRIBUTES TO THE MAINTENANCE OF NORMAL VISION.
Another importance of zinc citrate is that it helps to marinate normal vision. In fact, some forms of impaired vision have been linked to a deficiency of zinc in the body. This can be corrected by regular uptake of zinc minerals to boost normal vision.
CONTRIBUTES TO THE NORMAL FUNCTION OF THE IMMUNE SYSTEM.
Zinc affects multiple parts of the immune system. These parts may range from the barrier of the skin to gene regulation located in lymphocytes. Zinc is very essential for the normal development and function of cells mediating nonspecific immunity such as neutrophils and natural killer cells.
Deficiency symptoms of zinc.
The major cause of zinc deficiency is usually a result of reduced intake. Deficiency of zinc may manifest as any of the following.
- Low testosterone levels and infertility.
- Growth retardation,
- Loss of appetite,
- Impaired immune function is a result of decreased production of natural killer cells.
There are some severe cases of zinc deficiency that may result in hair loss, diarrhea, delayed sexual maturation, impotence, hypogonadism in males, and eye and skin lesions.
