Zinc & Vitamin C: A Natural Defense

By  |  0 Comments

Do you always feel like you need a sweet after a meal? Do you still get the dreaded acne? Do you feel like you are sick all the time?

If you answered yes to one or all of these questions, you might be zinc deficient. According to The American Journal of Clinical Nutrition, nearly 73% of all Americans do not get the recommended daily allowance of zinc. This deficiency is due to depleted soils, refining of grains, and overconsumption of calcium supplements. (Calcium competes with zinc when taken together.)

Cold & Flu Season Is Upon Us

Zinc is a mineral that our bodies cannot store; therefore, we need a constant supply of zinc in our diet. Research tells us zinc affects our immune system in multiple ways. Zinc also helps improve cold symptoms that encompass, nasal congestion, nasal drainage, sore throat, and cough to help to resolve sooner. It increases our T-cells, which are essential to fight off illnesses. Zinc boosts our immunity to help fight viral and bacterial infections. Zinc supports healthy skin, hair, and even wound healing by supporting the mucosal membranes.

Vitamin C, a known antioxidant, can help reduce inflammation. Were you aware that vitamin C can help you fight a cold faster or ease your symptoms if you were taking it before getting sick? Keep in mind, if you are still healthy, it does not hurt to start taking vitamin C now.
