Zinc is a trace element that participates in almost all metabolic processes and it is present in every cell of our body. It contributes to the healthy functioning of the immune system, the health of the hair, skin and the nails, maintaining the normal level of testosterone, the male sex hormone and normal mental functions, while it also inhibits harmful oxidative processes due to its antioxidant effect.
Who do we recommend it to?
• Those living in settlements with polluted air, due to its antioxidant effect,
• those who do not consume food products with high zinc contents, such as meat or whole-meal grains frequently and in appropriate amounts,
• sportspeople and those performing hard physical work,
• anyone during stressful life situations.
Symptoms of zinc deficiency may include: skin, hair, nail and sight problems, lengthened healing of wounds in mild cases. If the deficiency is serious, it can lead to dwarfism and atrophy of the testicles.**
