Zinc is used
for treatment and prevention of zinc deficiency and its consequences, including
stunted growth and acute diarrhea in children, and slow wound healing. Zinc is
needed for the proper growth and maintenance of the human body. It is found in
several systems and biological reactions, and it is needed for immune function,
wound healing, blood clotting, thyroid function, and much more. Meats, seafood,
dairy products, nuts, legumes, and whole grains offer relatively high levels of
It is also
used for boosting the immune system, treating the common cold and recurrent ear
infections, and preventing lower respiratory infections. It is also used for
malaria and other diseases caused by parasites.
use zinc for an eye disease called macular degeneration, for night blindness,
and for cataracts. It is also used for asthma; diabetes; high blood pressure;
acquired immunodeficiency syndrome (AIDS); and skin conditions such as
psoriasis, eczema, and acne.
include treating attention deficit-hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), blunted sense
of taste (hypogeusia), ringing in the ears (tinnitus), severe head injuries,
Crohn’s disease, Alzheimer’s disease, Down syndrome, Hansen’s disease,
ulcerative colitis, peptic ulcers and promoting weight gain in people with
eating disorders such as anorexia nervosa.
use zinc for benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH), male infertility, erectile
dysfunction (ED), weak bones (osteoporosis), rheumatoid arthritis, and muscle
cramps associated with liver disease. It is also used for sickle cell disease
and inherited disorders such as acrodermatitis enteropathica, thalassemia, and
athletes use zinc for improving athletic performance and strength.
Iron is vital
for the production of hemoglobin, the part of red blood cells that ferries
oxygen to cells. Nearly two-thirds of the body’s iron is found in hemoglobin,
which explains iron’s key role in promoting life and supporting health. Smaller
amounts of iron are found in myoglobin, a protein that’s responsible for
transporting oxygen and storing it on a short-term basis within the muscles.
Iron is critical for regulating cell growth and replication, as well as for
skin repair. It supports your immune system and is required for normal brain
and nervous system function.
It is an
essential component of dozens of enzymes – proteins that initiate chemical
reactions in the body – including those involved in energy production and for
making DNA, the cells’ blueprint for reproduction. Iron supports your immune
system, too. It is necessary to produce certain cells to make the enzymes that
kill the germs that can make you ill.
required for normal brain and nervous system function at the cellular level and
beyond. Neurotransmitters, the compounds that allow nerve cells to communicate,
depend on iron, as does myelin, the protective sheath that surrounds and
insulates nerve fibers. According to the USDA’s 2010 dietary guidelines for
Americans, iron is one of the nutrients of concern for women in their
childbearing years. A large number of females, who are capable of becoming
pregnant, including adolescent girls, are deficient in iron. In fact, iron
deficiency is the most common nutrient shortfall in the United States.
About 15% of
the body's iron is stored for future needs and mobilized when dietary intake is
inadequate. When iron levels in the blood are low for a prolonged period of
time, there is insufficient iron available to support normal red blood cell
production, which may result in iron-deficiency anemia. Iron deficiency can
limit oxygen delivery and the production of enzymes that rely on iron to
function properly, including those involved in energy production.
dietary iron is often the culprit in iron deficiency and iron-deficiency
anemia, but chronic bleeding or a large blood loss may also be to blame. In the
absence of bleeding, including menstruation, or pregnancy, the body normally
loses only tiny amounts of iron every day, so a constant loss of even a very
small amount of blood may result in iron deficiency with time.
iron intake resulting in deficiency can lead to health complications. Symptoms
• Muscle weakness;
• Lack of stamina;
• Loss of libido;
• Sluggish immune
These symptoms are associated with poor oxygenation of the body, both
in muscles and in several organs such as the brain, heart, kidneys and lungs.
Scientists have also observed that a lack of iron can lead to learning
difficulties and poor concentration. This is why supplementing with iron may
help improve cognitive ability and prevent heart failure.
You can get iron from Wheat Cereal, Bran Cereal, Instant Oatmeal,

biotin content of foods is limited and varies significantly. To ensure you get
the biotin you need, eat a well - balanced diet with a variety of foods.
a powerful mineral that is essential for the proper functioning of the body.
For starters, it plays a critical role in metabolism and thyroid function. It
also helps protect the body from damage caused by oxidative stress.
an essential trace mineral that assists with cognitive function and fertility.
Selenium may help prevent cardiovascular disease, thyroid problems, cognitive decline, which
means disorders related to thinking, cancer, and others.
Vitamin D is
a fat-soluble vitamin that helps your body absorb calcium and phosphorus.
Having the right amount of vitamin D, calcium, and phosphorus is important for
building and keeping strong bones.
must have vitamin D to absorb calcium and promote bone growth. Too little
vitamin D results in soft bones in children (rickets) and fragile, misshapen
bones in adults (osteomalacia). You also need vitamin D for other important
active form as calcitriol, vitamin D contributes to skin cell growth, repair,
and metabolism. It optimizes the skin's immune system and helps destroy free
radicals that can cause premature aging. While the body can produce vitamin D
on its own through sun exposure, too much sun accelerates skin aging.
