  4. Why is Zinc So Important?

Zinc essential is to growth and life.

  • Zinc is essential to the normal growth and development of animals and humans. Frequently,– simple zinc supplementation corrects unexplained slow growth in children.
  • Zinc is a structural component of cellular RNA and DNA. You can’t make new cells without it.
  • Zinc stabilizes cell membranes, protecting them against peroxidation (oxidative damage). It plays a role here that is anti-aging and anti degenerative disease.
  • Zinc potentiates the action of insulin, helping move sugar into cells. Chromium, vanadium, manganese, and lithium have also demonstrated this ability to balance blood sugar by normalizing insulin’s activity.
  • Zinc is required for the synthesis (manufacture) of steroid hormones by the adrenal glands. One cannot grow or mature without steroid hormones.
  •  Zinc has been identified in more than 80 enzymes and proteins, giving evidence of its wide ranging importance in metabolism (the sum total of life-giving biochemical events in the body).
  • Zinc is essential for the structure and function of these enzymes.
  • Zinc, as part of these enzymes, is critical to the metabolism of proteins, nucleic acids, lipids, mucopolysaccharides and carbohydrates.
  • Zinc enzymes:
  • Detoxify dietary and naturally occurring alcohols.
  • Detoxify and remove carbon dioxide, thereby sustaining life itself.
  • Are part of pancreatic enzymes responsible for the breakdown of proteins and peptides to their amino acid building blocks.
  • Are responsible for the splitting and replication of DNA in cells during growth.
  • Regulate cellular development, division and differentiation.
  • Are essential for protein synthesis.
  • Help control the strength, number of and effectiveness against disease of white blood cells.
  • Are essential to the synthesis of new bone.
  • Provide antioxidant protection within each cell as a structural and activating component of S.O.D (super-oxide dismutase).
  • Zinc also increases the activity of many other enzymes (an effect that can also be achieved by several other metal enzymes).
