Zinc is a vital mineral that strengthens the immune system, heals body tissues, synthesizes DNA and metabolizes nutrients. It also helps with taste and smell functions. The body cannot store zinc, so it must be obtained from the foods we eat on a daily basis.
Some of the main nutritious sources of zinc include meat, shellfish, legumes, seeds, nuts, dairy, eggs, whole grains, some vegetables, and dark chocolate. Yes, in this case, a little bit of dark chocolate (70-85% cocoa, low in sugar) can be healthy!
Our new and updated Digestion 360 contains your daily dose of zinc, as well as many other essential minerals and herbs which help with overall gut health.
