Zinc is necessary for proper reproduction, growth and development. It’s required for the function of approximately 300 enzymes in the body, and it plays a part in numerous body processes including proper immune function, eye health and regulation of appetite, taste and smell.*
Zinc is also an antioxidant, meaning it helps protect healthy cells from the potentially damaging effects of free radicals. Free radicals are unstable molecules that attack healthy cells, damaging their structure and DNA. They’re believed to contribute to the aging process. Free radicals are generated in the body as a result of natural body processes (such as breathing and digestion), but also from exposure to environmental toxins (including ultraviolet light, radiation, smoking and air pollution). Antioxidants, such as zinc, neutralize free radicals, helping to protect healthy cells.*
