IN THE BODY
The body absorbs 20 - 40 percent of all dietary zinc.
The lack of Zinc in the body can cause problems with the immune
system, cardiovascular disease,
problems with the skin, osteoporosis, abnormalities with the
fetus and defections in the reproductive organs.
Natural forms of Zinc can be found in meat, seafood and whole grains.
- Women 12 mg
- Men 15 mg
- During pregnancy 15 mg
- During lactation 19 mg
Too much Zinc can result in loose stool, problems with the
immune system, heart disease and severe vomiting.
Zinc helps the body make proper use of Vitamin A, and teams up
with Copper in doing so.
If you are a diabetic, your doctor might give you Zinc supplements
to help you maintain a proper
balance in the body. Skin problems, cold, arthritis, digestive
disorders and those with problems
healing wounds quickly would all benefit from taking Zinc supplements.
If you take too much, it could hinder your body’s ability to absorb Copper.
