Health Tip: Your Body Needs Zinc

Today let’ s talk about zinc.

Zinc is an important mineral found in almost every cell in the human body.

Zinc supports a healthy immune system, is needed for wound healing, helps maintain your sense of taste and smell and is needed for DNA synthesis.

Zinc also supports normal growth and development during pregnancy, childhood and adolescence.

Zinc is found in lots of foods, and oysters contain more zinc per serving than any other.  Other good food sources include beans, nuts, certain seafood, whole grains, fortified breakfast cereals and dairy products.
