Talking Points From Dr. Nazarenko on
Zinc and Its Health Benefits:
- Zinc’s rising popularity. Zinc seems to be growing in popularity—or at least is discussed more in the mainstream—likely because it is commonly found in foods and/or relatively inexpensive supplement to purchase, if needed. It is a natural mineral. Common foods with zinc include meat, shellfish, legumes, seed & nuts, and dairy. Because these are staples in many people’s diets, it’s natural to talk supplementation when one is missing (e.g., in the case of a vegan diet).
