Zinc is a mineral that stimulates the activity of approximately 100 enzymes, which are substances that promote bio-chemical reactions in your body. These reactions are essential for the formation of superoxide dismutase, one of the body’s most important free radical scavengers. Zinc also promotes immune function, taste sensitivity, protein and DNA synthesis, insulin production, and reproductive function including organ development and sperm motility. Additionally, zinc also supports normal growth and development during pregnancy, childhood, and adolescence.
Age-related declines in immune function are similar to those associated with zinc deficiency, and the elderly represent a group that is vulnerable to mild zinc deficiency. When older individuals were given zinc supplements in a clinical trial, certain aspects of immune function improved.
