Is Your Patient Suffering from a Zinc Deficiency?

While a majority of people are not suffering from a severe zinc deficiency, many people are unknowingly suffering from a mild one. A zinc deficiency presents itself in a variety of symptoms. Understanding the symptoms and signs can help you discover an unknown deficiency in your lifestyle patients!zinc_Deficiency


Signs of Zinc Deficiency:


1) Weak Immunity

Zinc is an essential mineral to maintain immune function. Without it, your client may fall ill more often than normal. It is also important to protect cell membranes, prevent the growth of cancer cells and more. Though these cannot be seen as easily, if your client seems to have a weak immune system, consider the possibility of a zinc deficiency.


2) Thinning Hair

Hair loss or alopecia can be a symptom of a zinc deficiency. Thinning hair can be scary for both men and women. If your lifestyle patients complain about hair loss, look into their regular diet and see if they may be suffering from a lack of zinc.


3) Skin Issues

Acne, eczema, and other common skin conditions could be connected to a diet deficient in zinc.


4) Energy Levels and Cognition

If your patients complain of feeling groggy, cloudy, and lethargic, they might need more zinc in their diet. Zinc plays an essential role in the neurotransmitter function and helps people maintain cognition and energy levels.


Not all Zinc Ingredients are Created Equal

Most popular zinc ingredients are zinc poly ascorbate and zinc sulfate. These ingredients are not easy for our bodies to absorb. At InterHealth, we’ve developed the best zinc ingredient available. Our ingredient, L-OptiZinc® is a unique mineral chelate that pairs zinc with the amino acid L-methionine. Significant research and testing have shown that L-OptiZinc® is better absorbed than other forms of zinc and that plasma levels remain high compared to other zinc forms. In comparisons to Zinc Sulfate, L-OptiZinc® had a 24% better absorption rate and when compared to Zinc Oxide, L-OptiZinc® had a 21% better retention.
