6 Reasons Zinc Is Good For You
Try Some Zinc!
I am a big enthusiast of health and diet and after dealing with my skin issues I’ve recently had, I started to look into zinc. Zinc is fantastic for a myriad of reasons and it’s a discovery I’m glad I’ve found as I’ve made some quick improvements with it already.
1. It Helps With Copper Imbalance
People generally have a copper to zinc imbalance. When this happens it leads to a myriad of side effects, not limited to.
- Bad skin.
- Low sex Drive
- Trouble sleeping
Getting more zinc in your diet is necessary to help fight against htese things. Just be aware that zinc affects copper absorption too, so you don’t want to consume too much zinc as it can lead to a copper deficiency. Make sure if you’re taking zinc through supplements that you take some copper as well if you’re taking a lot of zinc. Also make sure you eat zinc on a full stomach so you don’t get sick from it.
2. Helps You Sleep.
Trouble getting adequate sleep? A zinc deficiency might be the cause of it. Zinc helps you get a full nights rest so that you wake up refreshed. A good sleep also has numerous other health benefits. Zinc is a powerful neurotransmitter that helps metabolize melatonin and regulates dopamine levels. A full sleep will keep you focused and alert for a more productive day. Want a good nights rest? Try zinc.
3. Helps Skin and Fights Inflammation
Zinc is anti inflammatory and it’s on things like anti-rash cream and it’s on anti irritation solution for diapers. Zinc is not only good for your skin, but it fights inflammation on the inside as well. If you’re having a lot of bad reactions to food, it could be that you are zinc deficient.
Many times when people suffer from malabsorption and have a hard time eating certain foods it can be due to the same thing. If you have an issue digesting food properly your healthy eating will be less effective because your gut won’t store the nutrients and it will also keep more toxins in your body as well. Zinc helps against all of this.
People who have hormonal acne, especially teenage males and also women who are pregnant, on their period, or even menopausal can have bad acne and zinc helps a lot in fighting against it and reducing cysts as well. Taking it with vitamin A, Vitamin E, and Vitamin C also helps a lot.
For a bonus put some zinc on your face while taking some and look at the results. It’s a cheap and healthy way to take care of yourself without all of the horrendous side effects of antibiotics. Zinc oxide powder is available. You should get the non-nano kind so that it doesn’t go into your bloodstream.
4. Boosts Immune System
Feeling sick and under the weather often? Try some zinc, it helps your immune system so you feel much more robust and healthy overall. People who are zinc deficient are more likely to get sick in the first place so if you want to feel healthy, zinc it up! A body low in zinc is often low in T-Cell production which is instrumental in fighting off invaders in your body.
5. Zinc Boosts Libido
Just not in the mood to get the job done? Your low libido might be a result of zinc deficiency. Especially in men. This is important for two reasons.
- Zinc keeps men in the mood for sex. It also helps them maintain arousal
- Semen is heavily saturated with zinc. If you ejaculate often, you will deplete yourself of zinc. This is also the reason that you hear of some people using semen as skin cream. It’s heavy in zinc. I of course would just use zinc on my skin but you can tell your significant other it’s healthy for them *wink*.
6. It Fights Against Depression.
If you are depressed it could be because of zinc deficiency’s People who are zinc deficient have a harder time concentrating and are more likely to be depressed. There have been many people who report feeling much better after taking zinc as well so give it a try! Much better than being on lots of drugs. Zinc regulates dopamine which helps people feel more motivated and rewarded.
As you can see zinc is important and very useful. Due to the modern diets many people are missing out on it! What started out as a skin fix turned into something much more. useful information should always be shared to get out there and give it a try.
