Zinc sulfate monohydrate is an ionic salt of zinc combined with sulfuric acid that provides a dietary source of zinc. Zinc is an essential mineral that humans must obtain through diet. Unfortunately, zinc deficiencies are incredibly common, affecting at least 2 billion people worldwide. A quarter of the world's population is at risk of developing a zinc deficiency, and almost a third of them don’t consume enough through food sources.
Zinc serves as a cofactor for 300+ enzymatic reactions and facilitates the function of 1000+ transcription factors that copy DNA segments into RNA. In addition to enabling hundreds of biological functions, zinc also acts as an antioxidant and supports immune health.
The immune system cannot function at full capacity without sufficient zinc. As a result, many immune health supplement blends include zinc for its immune system-boosting properties. It’s a potent antioxidant that helps form SuperOxide Dismutase (SOD) enzymes. SODs protect the immune system by scavenging free radicals and inhibiting oxidative damage. Research shows that zinc also supports respiratory health and can reduce the duration and severity of cold symptoms. Numerous scientific studies confirmed this, noting zinc lozenges helped shorten the common cold by up to 33%. Zinc also has anti-inflammatory and antiviral properties that may benefit the immune system.
Zinc can improve skin health in several ways. It’s essential for maintaining a healthy skin barrier and has anti-microbial properties. Zinc sulfate may also improve the appearance and symptoms of acne. It can act against the two most common types of acne-causing bacteria while also reducing inflammation. Zinc sulfate appears to have particularly potent effects on acne. Multiple clinical trials support this, as participants with mild to moderate acne experienced statistically significant improvements in their acne after taking zinc sulfate supplements. Zinc deficiencies also have a strong correlation with acne, perioral dermatitis, and numerous other dermatological problems. Addressing the deficiency often helps improve and resolve those problems.
Most individuals tolerate zinc supplements well, as zinc is an essential mineral for life and has numerous biological functions. Gastrointestinal side effects may occur, including nausea, vomiting, upset stomach, and diarrhea. Exceeding the recommended daily intake can affect other nutrient levels. Zinc may interact with certain antibiotics when taken simultaneously. Take zinc supplements separately from antibiotics to maintain their efficacy.
