Do you think your diet lacks in zinc?
Zinc does many things to your body, so common signs of lacking zinc may include a lessened sense of smell or taste, a strange metallic taste in your mouth, slower wound healing, rough skin, and even hair loss. If you do find yourself going through any of these things, it is highly recommended that you consult your doctor.
Of course, we all know that there is no cure for the common cold, but there are certain things that can aid it or help you to recover a bit quicker than normal. One of these things is increasing the zinc in your diet, so try it, give it a go, and see if you feel any better next time you have a cold.
Boosting your immunity
Some research has shown that zinc can help to control infection by preventing inflammation. It's also said that zinc can help fight infection and can also assist the balance of your immune response; this is why taking zinc tablets at the start of a cold could possibly help to get rid of it that bit sooner.
How much zinc do I need?
The recommended daily intake for women is 7mg of zinc and 9.5 for men, which should be fairly easy to incorporate into a nice balanced diet. However, because zinc is not that common in many foods, sometimes you may need to take a supplement just to boost it to the level you need to be at.
Luckily that is where REVLABS comes in handy. Supplements are a great way to give your body everything it needs without you having to control every single part of your diet. If you need any help, assistance or advice, please feel free to get in touch and talk to one of our professionals.
