Essential for health, Zinc is vital mineral for the body. So give your body a regular supply of this important nutritional supplement from Swanson. Zinc supports hundreds of processes from boosting the immune system to maintenance of the eyes, the prostate, skin condition to aiding digestion, healing wounds and may even support fertility.

Zinc is an essential trace element because it is used by every cell in the body for the hundreds of processes that take place continuously in order to support your health. Zinc is contained in enzymes - chemicals that do everything from digesting your food to healing wounds, fighting off bacteria and viruses to supporting our taste and smell senses. Zinc is required by the body to support growth and development from pregnancy through to adult life.
A deficiency of Zinc is rare, but not uncommon and may present itself with symptoms including slowed growth, loss of appetite, slow wound healing, poor sense of smell, changes in vision, diarrhea and nausea. If you have concerns, then it is highly recommended that a doctor or health professional diagnose a Zinc deficiency first. However because the body does not produce or store Zinc it relies on external sources so to avoid a deficiency it is important to maintain a healthy diet.
Food is a great source of Zinc, particularly high protein foods such as beef, pork, liver, poultry and eggs. Cheese, beans, nuts and wheat germ are also a good source but the Zinc is less easily absorbed. Dietary supplements are a great option for maintaining a consistent supply of Zinc to the body. Zinc is present in almost all multivitamins and is also available on its own.
