Zinc is a trace element that is essential to the human body for many functions, including supporting healthy functioning of the immune system. Zinc is also responsible for maintaining healthy skin, healthy eyes, and reducing inflammation in the body.
Deficiencies in zinc may lead to hair loss, fatigue, and frequent infections.
Some studies have found that zinc helps with recovery from upper respiratory infections like the flu and colds.
You can obtain zinc from foods such as fish, beans, eggs, meats, and cheese. You can take zinc via oral and IV supplementation.
If you are interested in zinc for your health, book an IV at our sister office Nervana Neurospa.
