The mineral Zinc plays a important role in supporting our immune function as well as assisting in many cellular functions and numerous enzymatic functions. Zinc is an essential part of healthy hormone and immune molecule development and therefore human growth. Unfortunately, deficiencies are very common globally with an estimated 1/4 of the worlds population deficient. Over 400 thousand deaths annually are contributed to by a Zinc deficiency. Zinc is most important for pregnant women and growing children because it helps with cognitive development as well as regulating Leptin, IGF-1 (insulin-like growth factor-1), Cortisol and other hormones.
