Suboptimal zinc levels can be a concern throughout the lifespan, classically presenting with symptoms of poor immunity, impaired wound healing, skin conditions and poor taste. However, these are just the most well-known signs of zinc deficiency. Zinc’s role in overall health is much more complex.
Zinc’s reputation as an immune boosting mineral is well-deserved as it is required for the normal development and function of natural killer cells, neutrophils, macrophages and various cytokines. Research has shown that it is capable of preventing viral replication in the upper respiratory tract, making it acutely indicated during the common cold and other infections.
When it comes to hormonal balance, zinc helps to stabilize insulin and thereby support healthy blood sugar levels. It is also involved in thyroid health by increasing receptor sensitivity to triiodothyronine (T3). Finally, in males, a zinc-deficiency can negatively affect sperm parameters and it is one of the few nutrients that has been shown to contribute to low testosterone levels.
Other clinical indications for zinc supplementation include eating disorders (anorexia nervosa and bulimia nervosa), age-related macular degeneration and oligospermia. Supplemental zinc has been well-researched and proven to be beneficial in all of these conditions.
Ensuring that the body has optimal zinc levels is not only imperative in populations with the aforementioned clinical conditions, but also special populations that may not be symptomatic but do have greater zinc requirements. These would include seniors, those with digestive health disorders, vegetarians, pregnant women and those who are on multiple prescription medications.
