Zinc is an essential micronutrient that plays a key role in almost all aspects of your health. It is the second most abundant mineral in the body. It is also on the list of 6 minerals for which the FDA (US Food and Drug Administration) has recommended daily consumption.
Zinc is right up there with vitamin C as a popular cold remedy. Many people turn to zinc tablets and supplements when they feel ill and for good reason “Immune cells depend on zinc for healthy development and function”. This role that zinc plays in immune function is why researchers think that increasing your zinc intake when you’re sick or just before you get sick can help shorten the length of the illness or stop you from getting sick. According to a May 2017 meta-analysis published in JRSM Open, at least 75 mg of zinc per day shortens the common cold by 33 percent.
