Liquid Mineral 2 Zinc x 120ml
- Vegetarian product
Zinc is an essential mineral which is found in nearly every type of cell. It is known to stimulate the activity of approx. 100 different enzymes and subsequent biochemical reactions, including apoptosis, hormone release, and nerve impulse transmission. Zinc’s role in healthy immune function has long been recognised, since it is crucial for the activation of T-lymphocytes.
Zinc additionally supports normal growth and development during pregnancy, childhood, and adolescence and is needed for wound healing and DNA synthesis. While found in a wide variety of foods, albeit in very small amounts, most natural zinc in the Standard UK Diet comes from red meat and dark poultry meat consumption. Therefore, diets lacking in these meat sources may subject the individual to zinc deficiency. Zinc deficiency tends to be relatively common in elderly or diabetic individuals.
Zinc deficiency has also been associated with hypochlorhydria, excessive copper intake, excessive alcohol intake, and with digestive malfunction. Phytates, compounds found in whole grain breads, cereals, legumes, and other vegetable products, can inhibit zinc absorption and for this reason, vegetarians may require 50% more zinc than non-vegetarians. Known signs of zinc deficiency include poor wound healing, hair loss, premature graying of hair, diarrhoea, loss of appetite, taste abnormalities, skin rashes, corneal clouding, and altered libido or mood and susceptibility to frequent infections due to impaired immune function.
Zinc loss may be precipitated by certain antibiotics, specifically tetracyclines and quinolones, anticonvulsant drugs, and diuretic use.
Minerals are essential for life, not just yours and mine but all life, including all plants, animals, and even insects. Each of the macro minerals sodium, potassium, magnesium, and calcium, as well as the trace minerals iron, zinc. copper, chromium, manganese, molybdenum, selenium, and iodine must be consumed in the diet for optimum health.
Body Bio Minerals are unique, highly-absorbable minerals. Their low dose solutions do not mean they have reduced potency, rather they have been designed to work specifically with the use of the testing process to provide an accurate and individualised programme of mineral restoration.
It is well known that modern farming techniques deplete many of the minerals in the soil as well as the nutritional content of our food. The absence of a steady food-derived supply of minerals subtly undermines our health. This may be difficult to quantify but we certainly are aware of the changes in the character of the food we buy.
BodyBio has developed a group of 8 Essential Liquid Minerals in a very low concentration which is close to homeopathic. This mild concentration of each mineral challenges the taste buds to search out the answer we are asking. First, is there something there other than water. If so, is it pleasant, is it harsh? Each of us has the ability to test each mineral by itself, to determine desirability at that moment in time. Important, because change and adjustment are part of the fabric of your life and health.
