            A deficiency of zinc can lead to a wide variety of diseases, degenerative diseases and illnesses.  A heavy loss of zinc occurs in sweating, therefore, athletes are particularly susceptible to zinc deficiency (i.e.; Anorexia nervosa, Muscle weakness, Pica etc.).  Zinc deficiency is commonly due to depletion of our soil, and losses associated with food processing.  Zinc aids in: the proper assimilation of vitamins, normal growth and development, maintenance of body tissues, sexual function, immune system, chemical detoxification, synthesis of DNA, and helps reduce healing time both before and after surgery.  It is an anti-oxidant, and must be in proper balance to assist some 25 enzymes in various functions involving digestion, metabolism, and reproduction.  Zinc is effective in hormone production, improves sex drive and has been proven to reduce the size of the prostate gland and is important for the proper maintenance of the male reproductive system.

            In the 1800’s surgeons used zinc as an antiseptic/antibiotic after surgery and it was noted for its healing properties. Wounds would heal, at times, as quickly as 24 hours after an operation, without swelling. Scarring was barely noticeable after a short period of time. Lack of zinc in pregnant women can result in numerous birth defects such as:  Down’s syndrome, cleft lip, spinal bifida, clubbed limbs, hiatal hernia, and umbilical hernias.  Zinc is anti-bacterial, anti-viral and is found in all the body fluids, including the moisture in the eyes, lungs, nose, urine, and saliva.

            Zinc helps the body slim down!  Hunger is caused by the body demanding nutrition.  Hunger is regulated by zinc.  Zinc is also required for the proper absorption of food.  Tests show that zinc deficiencies increase the need for food by 50%, over subjects that had proper zinc levels.  Therefore a person who is zinc deficient could consume up to 50% more food than is necessary, causing an undesirable increase in carbohydrates and weight increase due to over eating.

            Because zinc moves through all the fluids in the body, it creates a defense against infection-causing bacteria and viruses trying to enter the body and stops bacterial and viral replication.  Zinc is stored in the thyroid, pancreas, liver, kidneys, bones, voluntary muscles, prostate, sperm, skin, hair, nails, white blood corpuscles and parts of the eyes.
