What is the function of Zinc? As a mineral of dietary importance, zinc helps maintain normal blood sugar levels, stabilizes the basal metabolic rate (BMR), regulates reproductive organs development and strengthens the immune system. In addition to this, zinc regulates the activity of two important sense organs, smell and taste, and plays a crucial part in protein synthesis as well as cell growth.
Zinc deficiency symptoms include: difficulty in recognizing smells or flavors, partial smell or taste loss, lack of appetite, depressive episodes, growth impairment in children, frequent colds and infections of either viral or bacterial nature and a generally difficult recovery following illness.
