Zinc is found in cells throughout your body. Zinc helps the immune system fight off invading viruses and bacteria. Zinc is also known to speed wound healing, and is essential for pregnant women, and children as the body needs zinc to develop properly. Zinc is also important for a proper sense of smell.
Zinc supplements are most effective when taken an hour before, or two hours after meals. That said, if Zinc causes you upset stomach, they can be taken with a meal. You should inform your healthcare practitioner if you are taking zinc supplements.
Signs of Zinc deficiency include a loss of taste or smell, anorexia or loss of appetite, apathy, lack of coordination, decreased immunity, depression, or excess hair loss.
