Zinc is an essential trace element involved in most
major metabolic pathways. General signs of human
zinc deficiency indicate that zinc has important
functions in maintaining immune function,
reproduction, healthy skin, and growth.
Numerous studies support the fundamental role of zinc
in normal immune response in humans. Immune cells
must be able to rapidly divide in order to respond to
daily challenges. Like all rapidly dividing cells,
immune cells depend on adequate amounts of dietary
As a cofactor of the antioxidant enzyme superoxide
dismutase (SOD), zinc can be considered an antioxidant
nutrient. Zinc supplementation has been shown to
increase the antioxidant activity of SOD, and provide
increased free radical protection. Zinc deficiency is
associated with increased oxidative damage.
Absorption of toxic heavy metals, especially cadmium
and lead, is lower in individuals with high zinc status
compared to those with low zinc status.
The body pool of readily available zinc appears to be
small, which renders the body susceptible to deficiency
and therefore dependent on a steady dietary supply of
bioavailable zinc. While typical zinc intakes in U.S.
adults are between 10 and 15 mg per day, which
approach the RDA, intakes in the elderly are often low.
Pregnant women are also at risk for zinc deficiency,
since they have a higher requirement for this trace
element. Frequently, vegetarians and chronically
depressed individuals have been found to have low zinc
Zinc Lozenges may be a useful nutritional adjunct for
individuals who wish to increase their intake of zinc.
