3 ways that zinc supports optimal nutrition for men
One of the most important essential minerals and an especially critical nutrient for men is zinc.
Now you’re probably thinking; what’s the big deal with zinc and why should
men pay particular attention to it?
Here are 3 ways this mighty mineral supports optimal nutrition for men:
1 Heart Health
Heart disease is the leading cause of death among men, but can be preventable with diet and lifestyle changes. Preliminary evidence suggests that zinc may play an important role in maintaining heart health and function through its effects on the inflammatory process.
In addition to the above benefits, zinc is also vital for immune function and overall cell health. All cells use zinc at some level. Because zinc is an essential mineral (which your body cannot produce) and has no special storage system in the body, you must consume enough of it in the diet or from supplements each day.
