Zinc is a trace mineral that isn’t stored by your body. Most people are familiar with its immune boosting properties, but it is important in helping head injuries, eating disorders, ADHD, osteoporosis, cancer prevention, and skin issues and about 100 more conditions!
Zinc regulates metabolism and hormone levels. Increasing zinc intake to 40 mg/day has been shown to help even severe acne cases. Eat pumpkin seeds and cashews, beef and turkey, quinoa and lentils, and seafood to boost zinc levels.
