The Zinc Refresher You Need (Plus, 5 Zinc Lozenges to Try!)

Zinc is an essential mineral, responsible for many critical functions in the human body. However, the body cannot naturally produce or store the nutrient, which means that it must be obtained through food and/or supplements. Read on to learn about the many benefits of zinc and check out five of our favorite zinc lozenges!

What does zinc do?

According to the National Institutes of Health (NIH) Office of Dietary Supplements, zinc is involved in many aspects of cellular metabolism. In addition to being “required for the catalytic activity of approximately 100 enzymes,” NIH maintains that zinc plays a role in the following:
  • Immune function
  • Protein synthesis
  • Wound healing
  • DNA synthesis
  • Cell division
The mineral, which must be present in the body to ensure proper smell and taste, “also supports normal growth and development during pregnancy, childhood and adolescence.”

How much zinc do we need?

Recommended Dietary Allowances (RDAs) of zinc vary by age. For example, infants up to six months of age require 2 mg of zinc daily, regardless of gender, according to NIH. It is recommended that women aged 19 and older have 8 mg of zinc daily, and the RDA for men aged 19 and older is 11 mg per day. Women who are pregnant require 11 mg of zinc daily and those who are lactating should aim for 12 mg. Vegans, vegetarians and individuals with certain conditions, such as anorexia, bulimia, chronic kidney disease and Crohn’s disease, may be at increased risk of zinc deficiency. Such a deficiency may be treated with high-dose supplements.*

Dietary sources of zinc

Zinc can be found in many different foods. Shellfish—particularly oysters—are a wonderful source of the nutrient. Other foods that are rich in zinc include:
  • Meat (e.g., beef, bison, pork and lamb)
  • Poultry (e.g., chicken and turkey)
  • Fish (e.g., flounder, salmon, sardines and sole)
  • Legumes (e.g., black beans, chickpeas, kidney beans and lentils)
  • Nuts and seeds (e.g., cashews and pumpkin seeds)
  • Dairy products: (e.g., cheese, milk and yogurt)
  • Eggs
  • Whole grains (e.g., brown rice, oats and quinoa)
  • Some vegetables (e.g., asparagus, kale, mushrooms and peas)
