“As for zinc, its recognition as an essential mineral came only recently. The story of how zinc achieved acceptance is a very interesting one. Not long ago scientists derided the premise that zinc played a role in human health. Today we know that zinc plays many important roles. For example, zinc is a part of the super oxide dismutase enzyme, so it also has a role as an antioxidant. In addition, zinc takes part in neurotransmitters, and plays a key role in immune function, sound growth and development. In fact, zinc is really a miracle element in many ways.”
