Zinc - What it is, effects and intake

In the following, we will tell you everything you need to know about zinc. Among other things, we clarify what benefits zinc can have for you or how much zinc you should generally take. Did you know that zinc is involved in many integral biological processes?

What is zinc?

Zinc is an essential trace element. It is found in the skin, hair and bones. However, the body cannot produce this important trace element itself and, above all, can only store small amounts in the body. Therefore, a zinc-rich diet is particularly important and must not be underestimated in any case.

What foods contain zinc?

Everyone can absorb zinc through their diet. Among other things, meat (beef, pork, poultry), eggs, and cheese are considered rich in zinc. But zinc is also found in nuts, legumes, cereal products, and seeds; thus, vegans and vegetarians can also maintain their zinc supply. 

Also, our All Clear My Dear Skin Vitamins, our Ah-Mazing Hair Vitamins, and You Glow, Girl Skin Vitamins contain zinc.

What are the benefits of taking zinc?

As mentioned, zinc is involved in many biological processes in the body, as it is an essential building block for many enzymes. Thus, zinc is important for cell division and plays a major role in the immune system

In addition, zinc affects fertility and contributes to normal cognitive function. Zinc is also popular for skin, hair and nails and is said to be a wound healer.


"Zinc not only influences our immune system but also plays an important role in cell division and wound healing. That's why a good zinc supply is very important."
