What is zinc?

Zinc is an essential nutrient that you must obtain through food or supplements.

We’ll talk about zinc and immune system in a moment, but it also plays a major function in other processes of the body. These include:

  • Protein synthesis,
  • DNA synthesis,
  • Growth and development (both physical and cognitive),
  • Enzymatic reactions,
  • Gene expression.

With all these functions, zinc deficiencies manifest in a wide variety of ways. These include:

  • Mental lethargy,
  • Growth retardation,
  • Slow wound healing,
  • Poor appetite,
  • Immune dysfunctions.

Severe zinc deficiency is fatal if untreated.

How does zinc boost healing process?

Zinc plays more than one important function in the body for healing.

Zinc for immune system

First, zinc helps keep the immune system from reacting too strongly. Inflammation is an immune response that helps the body heal. Unfortunately, sometimes the body goes overboard and too much inflammation is damaging. Zinc regulates this inflammation and keeps it at an appropriate amount.

Zinc for damaged skin cells

Zinc also hangs out in the skin cells and helps rebuild damaged skin cells. Patients with burns, skin ulcers, and other skin conditions heal faster when treated with zinc.
