About Organika Liquid Zinc & Vitamin C - Orange (300 mL)
Organika Liquid Zinc & Vitamin C
Zinc is a mineral also known as an ‘essential trace mineral’ because very small amounts of zinc are necessary for human health. The human body does not store excess zinc so it must be consumed regularly as part of a diet or through a supplement. Zinc has been known to help prevent acne and regulate the activity of oil glands. Vitamin C is well known for its role in helping immune systems combat attacks from colds and flus.
Zinc is an essential trace mineral for human health. It plays an important role in various body functions, such as:
The digestion of nutrients
Connective tissue formation
The metabolism of proteins, carbohydrates and fats
For the immune system in particular, zinc is vital - a lack of zinc can affect the normal functioning of immune cells. The immune system is complex and encompasses various different types of cells that work together to eliminate pathogens. Zinc is necessary for cell differentiation, allowing stem cells to become specialized immune cells.
While zinc is found in food sources, like meat and seafood, zinc deficiency can be a concern to certain groups, including those following a vegan or vegetarian diet, individuals with chronic diseases and the elderly. Signs of deficiency to watch out for include:
Loss of appetite
Impaired wound healing
- Dairy Free
- Maintains healthy bones
