Zinc is an important nutrient for your immune system and metabolic function. Zinc is not naturally produced by your body, so it is very important to get zinc from the foods you eat and through supplements.
Zinc is an essential micronutrient that is involved in metabolic function, immune function, and protein synthesis, and is the second most widely distributed trace element in iron. Those who suffer from malnutrition, or those who suffer from inflammatory bowel disease, have a higher risk of zinc deficiency.
Zinc is found in a variety of foods such as beef, seafood, poultry and grains. Most commercial supplements contain 7-80mg of zinc and are usually formulated as zinc oxide. Zinc is often used to treat and treat a number of conditions such as zinc deficiency, upper respiratory infections such as the common cold, wound healing, and immune system function.
Snack bars prepared with fortified cereals and many foods are protected with zinc. Whole grains such as wheat germ, oats, quinoa and brown rice are rich in zinc, about 10-13 mg per serving. Zinc is one of the main fortifying ingredients in most natural food store cereals, so if you prefer cereals, be sure to choose one of the healthier options with less sugar and common carbohydrates and more vitamins and nutrients.
Sesame seeds have been used in traditional folk medicine for thousands of years due to their rich nutritional profile and health benefits. In addition to zinc, magnesium, calcium and manganese, sesame seeds are a great source of healthy fats, B vitamins, fiber and protein.

The great thing about sesame seeds is that you can add them to literally anything – your zinc fortified cereal, yogurt, salad, smoothie or your oatmeal.

Shellfish like oysters, lobsters and crabs are rich in zinc. Only 6 medium-sized oysters have a daily recommended value of 32mg or 290% zinc. That’s if you like oysters.

Oysters are also low in calories and high in protein which is an excellent addition to reduce weight and build more muscle mass.
Zinc supplements are a great way to help increase zinc intake, if you don’t get enough zinc from your diet. Although zinc deficiency is uncommon, zinc can be used to treat common colds and shorten the duration, but several studies have shown that zinc can increase immunity and reduce inflammation.
