Before we get into those benefits, let's look at some historical context.
A History Lesson
In prehistoric times, zinc was first used for healing sore eyes and wounds. The Ancient Greeks relied on it to create ointments, and throughout the centuries, people have continued to use it for its healing properties.
Today, we're only just beginning to understand the full potential of zinc and what it can do for our bodies.
The Many Benefits of Zinc
While our bodies only need small amounts of zinc to function well, that doesn’t lessen the powerful effects of this trace mineral. Let's get into the benefits.
Zinc can help:
- Aid the digestive system. A 2021 study revealed that zinc-fortified foods could promote more beneficial bacteria while reducing harmful strains.
- Boost your immune system. Taking it regularly can reduce the chance of getting a cold and may decrease symptoms if you come down with one.
- Support healthy skin. Zinc can help reduce inflammation and clear up acne, according to a 2020 study.
- Protect you from the onset of metabolic syndrome. This syndrome is a group of conditions that may increase your risk of type 2 diabetes, heart attack, stroke and other health problems. A 2018 study suggests supplementing with zinc might be an effective way to reverse metabolic syndrome.
Zinc is an essential nutrient during times of growth and healing. And here's the best part of our sharing this information about zinc: you don't have to swallow a pill to experience the benefits!
Isn’t it wonderful knowing that sipping tea that includes the functional benefits of zinc is the perfect way to get your daily dose in while taking a moment just for you?
