Nature’s Bounty – Zinc – 50mg – 100 Caplets


Zinc is a trace element in the human body yet it is essential for a lot of biochemical processes.  Some of the essential processes dependent on Zinc include cell reproduction, production and maintenance of hormone levels, protein synthesis and absorption of vitamins and other minerals. When the body level of zinc is not enough to meet the body’s metabolic needs, a state of zinc deficiency is diagnosed.
Zinc deficiency or hypozincemia is a nutrient deficiency precipitated by malnutrition or malabsorption of the element. It can also be caused by certain disease states such as renal disease, chronic liver disease, diarrhea, sickle cell anemia, diabetes, cancer and even after having surgery to treat obesity. It is important to note that deficiencies of Vitamin A and D are prominent causes of zinc deficiency.

One chief sign of zinc deficiency is hair loss


There are many reasons why we need zinc in our bodies.  These reasons include:

  • Building healthy cells
  • Regulating hormones
  • Aiding in the absorption of other nutrients

Of course, too much of a good thing is not always good either, and this holds true with zinc. It is a common fear that too much zinc in the body can raise levels of DHT. It may seem strange, because even though DHT levels are raised, production is limited. Using zinc as a DHT blocker is not effective. Zinc helps to keep hormone levels regulated, which is one of the reasons why it is so effective in preventing and treating hair loss.
