Zinc is an essential mineral and antioxidant that plays a role in cognitive function, immune health, and more. Zinc is a cofactor for more than 300 enzymes and 1000 proteins that regulate gene expression. Zinc is widespread throughout the body, with the highest concentrations found in the brain, kidneys, liver, bones, muscles, and parts of the eye. Zinc picolinate is a zinc salt derived from picolinic acid. The body absorbs this form of zinc more easily than other zinc supplements.
Zinc is critical for several bodily functions, and taking supplements can provide the necessary store of zinc that the body needs. The body can’t synthesize zinc, so it has to rely on oral sources. Taking a zinc supplement helps ensure your body has the levels it needs to function.
Zinc is a common ingredient in several products designed to improve immune health. Zinc can act as an antioxidant to reduce inflammation and protect cells. Zinc also boosts respiratory health and may reduce the duration and severity of cold symptoms. Seven studies found that zinc lozenges had the potential to reduce the duration of colds by up to 33%. Zinc also exerts anti-viral effects, which may further enhance immune function.
Zinc supports a healthy skin barrier and can improve the symptoms of acne. Individuals with acne also tend to have lower zinc levels than individuals without it. Supplementing with zinc can reduce inflammation and the total number of acne bumps. Zinc slows the migration of immune cells toward the skin surface, effectively inhibiting androgens from affecting the skin.
Zinc supports the healthy functioning of several organs. Zinc reduces several risk factors that can harm the heart, such as balancing triglyceride and cholesterol levels. Zinc also supports ocular health by improving the flow of nutrients to the eye. The retinas use those nutrients to protect themselves from damage.
Most individuals tolerate zinc supplements well. Some may experience mild gastrointestinal side effects, including nausea, upset stomach, vomiting, and diarrhea. Taking excessively large doses can cause serious health effects and disrupt the absorption of other nutrients. Zinc may interfere with antibiotic efficacy if taken at the same time.
