How to Use Zinc in Your Diet

Friday, 17 Jun 2011 03:39 PM

Zinc is an essential mineral that boosts the body’s immune system and ensures the normal growth of bones and muscles. Apart from being good sources of protein, lean meat, skinless chicken, shellfish, and nuts contain trace amounts of zinc that the body can absorb easily.

Since zinc is closely linked to the functioning of oil glands, cell division, and healthy collagen, it is vital to include enough zinc in one’s diet for clear skin.

Zinc for acne treatment is recommended along with a healthy low-fat diet of vitamin and mineral-rich foods such as nuts, seeds, seafood, and whole grains.

Zinc contained in whole grains may not be as easily absorbed by the body as that contained in beef and seafood. The cause and effect relationship between diet and acne is not limited to consumption of fried food but is also related to zinc deficiency.
