Zinc Gives

Supports Mental Health… Zinc deficiency is linked to increased rates of chronic low mood, restlessness, irritability, nervousness, concentration difficulties, emotional instability and impulsive behaviour. People suffering from low mood have lower serum Zinc levels. Zinc most-likely boosts mental health, when taken combined with other pharmaceuticals. Anti-Ageing… Zinc provides various anti-ageing effects, particularly due to it stimulating the immune and antioxidant defences against ageing and age-related issues. The anti-ageing properties of a Zinc supplement also feature: prevention against ageing of the skin; cell protection against oxidative stress. Teens... Zinc is essential for teens. Reproductive hormones increase sharply during puberty, requiring significant amounts of Zinc. When zinc is in short supply, the skin suffers, resulting in a host of teenage skin problems, including acne. Studies show that Zinc is superior to tetracycline for treating acne.

Mens Health… Zinc assists the body producing and regulating various hormones including testosterone. Several scientific studies have shown a connection between too low amounts of Zinc and erectile dysfunction (ED). There is proof that dietary Zinc might have an impact on men’s sexual competency. In one research, rats were given a small daily oral dose of Zinc sulphate and they showed an increase in time prior to ejaculation and penile thrusting. Another 2016 research also found that a supplement containing Golden Root herb, Folic Acid, and Zinc enhanced the ejaculatory control of those men affected by premature ejaculation. Many men with erectile dysfunction also experience additional symptoms such as premature or delayed ejaculation. In recent years, Zinc deficiency has been connected to ED as well.

Zinc & Immunity

For our immune systems to be healthy and function correctly, we must have adequate Zinc. Actually Zinc is the key messenger of our immune cells and the Zinc inside our cells participates in important signaling events. Our bodies require Zinc to produce white blood cells that circulate throughout the blood, ready to respond when needed, against invading pathogens. Also it is known that Zinc influences antibody and cytokine production, phagocytosis – or the ingestion of unwanted cells or particles, and gene regulation within white blood cells. Zinc is found throughout our bodies as part of proteins and nucleic acids, but serum Zinc levels don’t always reflect your true zinc status. So you can't really trust hair anaylsis or urine tests, therefore at Ancient Purity we just say, always get enough Zinc. For long term use we recommend our Zinc with Copper Supplement. Short booster Zinc or fighting a seasonal challange, go for this Double Zinc first.

Zinc is often taken as a natural over-the-counter remedy for fighting colds and symptoms of illnesses. When taken for at least 5 months, Zinc could reduce the chance of becoming sick with the common cold, plus supplementing once you already feel sick can speed up the healing process.Research shows that zinc can interfere with the molecular process that causes mucus and bacteria to build within the nasal passages. Ionic zinc, based on its electrical charge, has the ability to exert an antiviral effect by attaching to receptors in nasal epithelial cells and blocking their effects. Research conducted by the Medical Education Center of Chandigarh India found that when Zinc was administered within 24 hours of onset of cold-related symptoms, the duration of symptoms was significantly reduced compared to the control group that didn’t supplement with zinc. Fewer patients in the Zinc group had cold-related symptoms five and seven days after experiencing the first symptoms compared to those who did not take zinc.

Zinc - Fertility & Longevity

Studies show that Zinc plays an important role in fertility, especially modulating serum testosterone levels in men. Dietary Zinc restriction and deficiency in normal young men is associated with a significant decrease in serum testosterone concentrations, which can negatively impact fertility and lower libido. In one study by the Department of Internal Medicine at Wayne University, after 20 weeks of Zinc restriction, giving patients zinc supplementation effectively increased serum testosterone in the majority of men. Zinc also impacts women’s fertility since adequate levels of Zinc are needed during the growth process of the female’s eggs, otherwise eggs cannot properly mature and the process in which a mature egg is released from the ovary might be interrupted.

Zinc also supports the healthy function of our heart, brain, liver, pancreas, kidneys, bone and muscles. At the cellular level, cells use the DNA present in the cells as their blueprint each time they replicate. In our lives, the body is able to reproduce DNA. With age, the ability lessens, meaning deterioration of our body systems. However it’s been discovered that Zinc plays a vital role in the speed of cellular DNA break down. Not enough Zinc impacts the body’s ability to fix typical damage that occurs to our DNA from oxidative stressors. Excessive oxidative stress causes damaging free radicals, which can lead to increased cellular ageing. This can also be caused by exposure to pollution, poor diet and being over-weight. A study of 18 men who consumed a rice-based, low Zinc diet over 6 weeks, adding a modest amount of Zinc to the diet reduced DNA strand breaks, indicating a reduction in the everyday “wear and tear” on DNA. So simply, Zinc plays a vital role in supporting reduction of oxidative stress and repair DNA with age.

Zinc Guard... Closing Thoughts   

So now you know Zinc is an essential trace element which humans need to stay healthy. Of the trace elements, Zinc is second solely to Iron in its concentration in the body. From 3,000 BC, humans have understood nutrition and nutritional supplements’ importance in wound healing. Hippocrates, the father of modern-day medicine believed that good health could be achieved through nutrition. Historically, the Zinc salts such as Zinc oxide or calamine were applied topically to enhance the wound healing process for more than 3,000 years. For the first time, the importance of the role of Zinc in the development and growth of organisms was reported in 1869, when it was revealed to be needed for the growth of Aspergillus niger (Fungus). In the early 1900s when advances in biochemistry were experienced, numerous of the essential constituents of nutrition were introduced. These advances led to the discovery of Zinc, Vitamin C, and a number of other important components. Until the mid-20th century, the importance of Zinc in the growth and development of mammals wasn’t recognised. Since that time, Zinc deficiency has been implicated as a cause for several health issues. In 1973, the association between Zinc deficiency and acrodermatitis entropathica (A disorder of zinc metabolism) was discovered.

Zinc is found in cells throughout the body. It is needed for your body's defensive (immune) system to decently function. This trace element plays a part in cell growth, cell division, carbohydrate breakdown and wound healing. Without Zinc we would not be able to smell and taste. During pregnancy, infancy, and childhood our bodies need Zinc and uses it to grow and develop properly. Insulin’s action is enhanced by Zinc as well. The recommended daily amount of Zinc is 11 mg for adult men and 8 mg for women. People experiencing low levels of Zinc might benefit from Zinc supplements. Oral Zinc supplements can decrease the symptoms of holiday tummy in kids with low Zinc levels, such as from malnutrition. Research suggests that oral Zinc might reduce the progression of an eye health issue known as age-related macular degeneration. Signs of Zinc deficiency include: delayed wound healing, depressed mood, poor appetite, loss of taste or smell, reduced immunity, loss of hair, and diarrhoea.

Q – Can you tell me, what are the best food sources of Zinc? 
A - Some of the ones that are widely available include: egg yolk, garlic, milk, kidney beans, pork, brown rice, potatoes, peas and spinach. 

Q - What are the most common symptoms of zinc deficiency?
A – Loss of weight, vision problems, lack of appetite, dry skin, slow wound healing and thinning hair. 

Q – How will I know if there’s too much zinc is in my body?
A – Fever, headache, uncontrolled vomiting, nausea, diarrhoea and stomach ache.

Q - Does lack of zinc lead to hair loss?
A - Zinc is vital for protein synthesis, vitamin and mineral absorption. When the body lacks zinc, above functions cannot take place efficiently and thus lead to thinning hair as one of the many disorders. Not only lack of zinc, but an excess of zinc can lead to the similar problem too. Zinc overdose may have hormonal imbalance including high testosterone level. This condition again promotes loss of hair.
