A deficiency in Zinc may lead to a wide variety of illnesses. Zinc moves through all the fluids in the body; it creates a defense against infection-causing bacteria and viruses trying to enter the body and stops bacterial and viral replication. Zinc aids in the proper assimilation of vitamins, normal growth and development, maintenance of body tissues with a focus on the strength of the immune system as well as the synthesis of DNA, and helps reduce healing time. It is antibacterial, anti-viral and is found in all the body fluids, including the moisture in the eyes, lungs, nose, urine, and saliva. Zinc is also an antioxidant, and must be in proper balance to assist some 25 enzymes in various functions involving digestion, metabolism, and reproduction.*
