Zinc is a trace element that plays a crucial role in our immune system. a lack of zinc can make you more susceptible to disease and illness.
Zinc is responsible for a number of functions in the body, and it helps stimulates the activity of over 1000 different enzymes. The element is naturally found in different foods, but it is also available as dietary supplements.
Currently, the recommended dietary allowance (RDA) for zinc in the United States is 11mg per day for men and 8mg a day for women. This means only a small intake of zinc is necessary to reap its numerous benefits.
However, studies confirmed it that many people today are living with zinc deficiency which could be very dangerous to health. We are deficient and yet didn't know why. Here are some reasons we may be zinc deficient.
#1 Reason: Soils of the food they eat are trace mineral deficient - not enough zinc.
#2 Reason: Zinc is removed from foods when refined
#3 Reason: Zinc oxide (inorganic zinc) in sunscreen displaces organically bound zinc from our body
#4 Reason: Iron and copper intake displaces zinc. Cast Iron skillets, Copper water pipes, Copper IUD, BCP's....
#5 Reason: Improperly prepared grains. Not sprouting all grains allows the phytic acid to bind to zinc & other trace minerals and render them non-assimilable.
#6 Reason: Heavy metals displace zinc.
By using the Zinc Taste Test you can get a relatively good idea of your zinc level. see Zinc Taste Test.
If zinc levels don't raise within a month, there's a heavy metal detox work that needs to be done. In my particular case, I had 5 heavy metals and with time I have been able to chelate these from my body safely.
Because zinc actually helps in the removal of these heavy metals, I consistently tested low in zinc throughout the process while zinc was busy chelating and removing these heavy metals from my organs and brain. These metals were safely and fully detoxed by the liver and removed from my body by using the 10 days cleanse.
Here is a recent heavy metal report mine showing the effects of heavy metal detox. 9 months ago I was high in each of these toxic metals and with the addition of a quality zinc product and the formulations below, I was able to chelate these heavy metals out of my system safely.
