  • What does the nutrient do? Zinc is essential for the immune system to work properly. It also plays a role in cell division, cell growth, and wound healing. Zinc is needed for smell and taste senses as well.
  • What are the symptoms with this deficiency? Symptoms include: frequent sickness, decreased appetite, taste and smell disturbances, wounds that are slow to heal, and skin sores.
  • Suggested Zinc Dosage: 10-50 mg/day.
