Human bodies are dependent on zinc for growth and development. The nervous, reproductive and immune systems are particularly influenced by zinc deficiency, as well as by increased levels of zinc. Zinc is known to play a critical role in cell growth, wound healing, immunity, protein synthesis, DNA synthesis, and it is required for taste and smell to work correctly. It is crucial to almost every aspect of one’s health. Therefore, people at risk of zinc deficiency are advised to include foods high in zinc in their daily diets. Zinc has several antioxidant and anti-inflammatory effects, including reducing oxidative stress. Oxidative stress is responsible for the development of chronic diseases such as cancer, cardiovascular disease, hypertension, diabetes mellitus, neurodegenerative diseases, rheumatoid arthritis, and more.
