Zinc Information

Zinc is involved in carbohydrate, protein, fat, and energy metabolism and helps support the immune system. As an important mineral, Zinc is also essential for cell division and growth. Zinc is necessary for the functioning of over 300 different enzymes and, as such, it plays a vital role in an enormous number of biological processes. Much attention has been placed on this mineral for its role in the immune system. In humans, the highest concentrations of zinc are found in the liver, pancreas, kidneys, bone, and muscles.

Zinc Notes

The Dietary Supplement Information Bureau recommends a daily dosage of approximately 25 mg of Zinc. Doses of 45mg per day are safe, but regular intake greater than 150mg per day could be a problem. Zinc toxicity can cause diarrhea, dizziness, drowsiness, vomiting, loss of muscle coordination and lethargy. Tell your doctor if any of these effects occur. Do not use any vitamin or mineral in children under 2 years of age unless first discussed with your healthcare professional.
