Zinc is a mineral. Since the human body does not store excess zinc, it must be consumed regularly as part of the diet. Common dietary sources of zinc include red meat, poultry, and fish. Zinc deficiency can cause short stature, reduced ability to taste food, and the inability of testes and ovaries to function properly.
It is also used to:
- Boost the immune system
- For the treatment of the common cold and recurrent ear infections
- For influenza
- For prevention and treatment of acute lower respiratory tract infections
