Zinc and the Immune System

Zinc is present in every cell in the body and is also a component of over 200 enzymes. Actually, zinc is involved in more enzymatic reactions than any other mineral constituent in mammals. Zinc is essential for normal skin, vision, smell, taste, reproduction, brain development, protein synthesis and wound healing. It is also one of the most important factors in a healthy immune system. Zinc is involved in just about every aspect of immunity, including the immune enhancing "T" cells that are necessary for immune response.


Children and adults need between 10 mg and 50 mg daily. Though the recommended daily value is 15 mg, it is generally recognized that 30 to 50% of ingested zinc is not absorbed due to complexing with phytic acid, perspiration loss, fiber transport through the intestines, or because of the competition for absorption with copper, iron and calcium.

Many physicians also recommend additional zinc supplementation at some point after the evening meal or at bedtime. By taking it at that time, there will be no fiber, calcium, iron or copper going through the system to interfere with its utilization. This should ensure that enough zinc gets absorbed in order to avoid a deficiency.
