Whether high or low, your immunity is strongly influenced by your zinc levels. The mighty mineral helps heal wounds and supports the overall growth of T and B cells, which are involved in the body’s immune response. Zinc benefits also include its function as an antioxidant, and studies have shown it can play a role in the prevention of inflammation as well.
Health Canada has stated that up to 41% of Canadians have inadequate dietary intakes of this mineral, which can lead to a zinc deficiency. Strong sources of zinc include lentils and chia seeds. However, you can also supplement instead with Jamieson’s lineup of zinc products!
