Zinc is a trace mineral that is needed in a wide array of skin processes. These include wound healing, treating acne, preventing stretchmarks, producing collagen and maintaining skin elasticity. A whopping 20% of the body’s total zinc supply is found in the skin.
Unfortunately, most people are deficient in zinc because it is lacking in New Zealand soils.
Zinc is the keratinising mineral that builds the integrity and strength of your skin. Seventy different enzymes in the skin rely on zinc, which means that deficiency can negatively impact on the normal functioning of your skin.
Oysters, liver, beef, lamb, pork, chicken, eggs, salmon, tuna, pumpkin, sunflower seeds, almonds, wholegrains and wheat-germ.
Please note: It is difficult to get an adequate daily supply of zinc from food sources alone. Zinc Repairs helps to boost your zinc levels.
