Zinc – The Immune Booster

by

Zinc

Zinc is an immune-boosting nutrient. In fact, over two hundred enzymes in our body require this mineral to function, which is far more than any other nutrient in our diet. A deficiency of Zinc can lead to impaired wound healing, increased susceptibility to colds and flu, and decreased sense of taste and smell. It has also been shown to help maintain healthy skin and reduce the incidence of prostate enlargement. Zinc is extremely important during cold and flu season because many immune cells require zinc for optimal function. To increase zinc in your diet, try eating more Crimini mushrooms, shiitake mushrooms, and spinach. Other good sources include asparagus, chard, scallops, lamb, beef, maple syrup, shrimp, green peas, yogurt, oats, pumpkin seeds, sesame seeds, turkey, miso, and spelt.
