Zinc benefits the body in many ways and is required in small amounts to maintain your health and perform certain functions every day. However, since growers stopped rotating crops in the 1950’s zinc has become deficient in our soil, making the vegetables we eat (unless organic) also deficient.
If you are not eating a diet consisting of plenty of organic vegetables such as shiitake mushrooms, green peas, spinach, broccoli or organic eggs, then you may be deficient.
Zinc deficiency is ranked as the fifth leading risk factor in causing disease worldwide. Zinc is present in every cell, organ, bone, tissue and also in the fluids of our body.
