abundant trace element found in the body besides iron – its weight
in the body is estimated to be approximately 1.8 grams.

at least 25 different enzymes and is an important constituent of insulin
and helping in the formation of insulin.
- Zinc takes part
in the metabolism of carbohydrates, the breakdown of alcohol and also
in the synthesis of nucleic acids.
- It is vital for
fertility and for the prevention of congenital birth defects, hence
its importance during pregnancy.
- Zinc exerts a
normalising effect on the prostate and is important in the development
of all reproductive organs.
- It is essential
for protein synthesis and also governs the contractibility of muscles.
- Zinc acts as
a traffic policeman, directing and overseeing the efficient flow of
body processes and the maintenance of enzyme systems and cells.
- Zinc is important
for blood stability and also in maintaining the body’s acid-alkaline
- It destroys toxic
Cadmium (found in cigarette smoke) and neutralises excess Copper.
- Zinc is necessary
for proper growth and works together with Vitamin A, Vitamin B6 and
New studies indicate
Zinc’s importance in brain functioning and also in the treatment
of Schizophrenia. There is strong evidence that Zinc is required for the
synthesis of DNA.
Zinc is soluble in
a wide range of pH solutions. It does not precipitate in the small intestine
- even in the presence of food. This enhances intestinal dispersion and

Zinc is important
to the functioning of the reproductive glands - especially the prostate
(an important sex gland round the neck of the bladder in males). Human
sperm and the prostate contain large amounts of Zinc.
Various studies have
confirmed the connection between adequate Zinc levels and prostate health.
In one study, when Zinc levels were reduced by 35% the prostate gland
became enlarged, blocking the urethra and urine flow. With a 48% decrease
in Zinc levels, the prostate became inflamed (Prostatitis) and with a
66% decrease prostate cancer was observed.

of every four men over the age of 55 suffer from a prostate condition.
The delicacy of the problem has caused a conspiracy of silence, with the

Excessive sweating can cause a loss of as much as 3mg of Zinc per day.
Most of the Zinc obtained from foods is lost during processing, or it
never exists in substantial amounts due to nutrient-poor soil.
A shortage of this
mineral may bring about lymphoid atrophy with a slight decrease in T-cell
numbers in the peripheral blood. Zinc chelated deficiency can cause a
depression of cell-mediated (lymphocyte) immune responses.
Smoking, coffee and
alcohol consumption are the main culprits of Zinc depletion.
