COMPENSATE FOR THE LACK OF ZINC
Zinc is an essential trace element in the human body and is responsible for a large number of biological processes. It is found in almost all cells and organs and plays a key role in the function of 300 human enzyme systems. Zinc is essential for an intact immune system, in which enzymes also have a particularly important function: Enzymes accelerate chemical reactions within the organism. Zinc can also reduce the release of those messenger substances that are responsible for allergies such as hay fever. Healthy skin, full hair and firm fingernails also depend on a balanced zinc status in the body.

- COLD & INFECT
A zinc deficiency can be the reason for frequent or recurring infections. The cells of the immune system play an important role in the defense against pathogens such as flu and cold viruses. Only if you have a sufficient supply of zinc can important metabolic processes take place and the immune system perform its tasks. A balanced zinc status can help to promote defense against infection, strengthen the immune system and reduce the duration of a cold.
BUILDING BLOCK FOR SKIN & HAIR
Zinc is essential when it comes to keeping the skin healthy. The trace element plays an important role in the formation of keratin and collagen - a deficiency can lead to dry, flaky skin. Among other things, it regulates sebum production and thus prevents the development of blackheads, pimples and acne. Thinning or dry, brittle hair can also indicate a zinc deficiency. For healthy hair growth, collagen is required, the formation of which is only possible with sufficient zinc in the body.
Since the body cannot produce zinc itself and the trace element is only found in small quantities, it is dependent on foods containing zinc on a daily basis. Animal products such as meat, fish and seafood are a good source of zinc intake, and to a lesser extent dairy products as well as legumes and whole grain cereals. Pumpkin seeds, tahini, oat flakes, lentils and quinoa are suitable sources of zinc for vegetarians and vegans.
