|Zinc is a component of more than 300 enzymes and as a nutrient has many seemingly divergent functions, probably because of the numerous metallo-enzymes of which it is a component. Enzymes from every class have been shown to require Zinc.
Zinc has a key role in the maintenance of the body’s nervous, reproductive and immune systems. It is required for the senses of taste and smell and is an integral part of insulin.
Zinc also aids wound healing, normal growth, good vision and maintenance of healthy skin.
The elderly, those who drink alcohol, with poor health or diet and pregnant women may have an increased requirement for zinc.
