2016 is Zinc’s Time to Shine

What do you know about zinc? This mineral seems to be overshadowed by popular minerals like calcium, magnesium, and iron. That is slowly changing. Zinc has been emerging from the shadows and gaining more deserved attention since 2012. According to an article from Nutrition Outlook, in 2016, the supplementation of this important mineral is expected to increase in demand. As researchers begin to learn more about the importance of Zinc in every aspect of the body, consumers are looking to find quality, safe supplements to support their healthy and active lifestyles.


In the past, zinc was only considered important for the health of the immune system, but new research has found that zinc is vital for:

  • Cognitive function
  • Reproductive health and fertility in men and women
  • Muscle recovery, strength, and power
  • Cardiovascular health
  • Diabetes prevention
  • Mood elevation
  • Quality sleep
  • Healthy energy levels


These findings have researchers and consumers more curious about zinc and in need of supplements that are absorbable, safe, and effective. Zinc can be found naturally in meat, leafy greens, and some nuts. However, the zinc derived from meatless sources (leafy greens, nuts) is less bio-available and more challenging for the body to absorb, causing a zinc deficiency in many vegetarians and vegans. With these lifestyles rising in popularity, a quality zinc supplement is needed.
