Zinc is an essential trace mineral that assists in the maintenance of the immune, reproductive, and digestive systems. It plays a crucial role in many bodily processes and functions such as in cell reproduction, hormonal balance, proper absorption of vitamins and in protein synthesis.
Zinc supplements are used to support normal growth and health and to alleviate zinc deficiency, known as hypozincemia.
