Put some ZINC in your life

Put some ZINC in your life

Zinc is such a critical element in human health that even a small deficiency is a disaster. Zinc supplementation is a powerful therapeutic tool in managing a long list of illnesses. Zinc, an essential trace mineral, is required for the metabolic activity of 300 of the body’s enzymes, and is considered essential for cell division and the synthesis of DNA and protein. These enzymes are involved with the metabolism of protein, carbohydrate, fat and alcohol. Zinc is also critical to tissue growth, wound healing, taste acuity, connective tissue growth and maintenance, immune system function, prostaglandin production, bone mineralization, proper thyroid function, blood clotting, cognitive functions, fetal growth and sperm production.

Zinc, Testosterone and Men's Health
Zinc is necessary to maintain normal serum testosterone. Inadequate zinc levels prevent the pituitary gland from releasing luteinizing and follicle stimulating hormones, which stimulate testosterone production.

Zinc also inhibits the aromatase enzyme that converts testosterone into excess estrogen. The testosterone to estrogen ratio in men declines with aging from a high of about 50:1 to half of that, or even a low of 10:1. Higher estrogen activity results in increasd risk of heart disease, weight gain, and obesity.

One reason for the progressive weight gain with age is that fat cells contain aromatase. More fat cells mean more estrogen which means more fat deposition.

This is further aggravated by alcohol consumption, which lowers zinc and increases estrogen, and so magnifies the problem.

In addition to the impact on hormone levels, zinc also has been proven to help the body produce healthier sperm by increasing sperm count and motility. A USDA study found that semen volume dropped 30 percent when zinc intake was low. Research published in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition found that male volunteers who consumed low amounts of zinc exhibited decreased semen volumes and serum testosterone concentrations.

Zinc deficiency has been found to have a severe impact on the male prostate gland. Zinc deficiency predisposes the prostate to infection (prostatis) which may lead to enlargement of the prostate gland (prostatic hypertrophy).

Zinc Boosts the Immune System

The significance of zinc in the body’s response to infection is well known. Zinc is a component in thymic hormone which controls and facilitates the maturation of lymphocytes. Zinc also plays a role in cell division and DNA replication, thereby aiding in the production of immune system cells.

Zinc Cuts Short the Common Cold

Zinc gluconate lozenges taken at the first sign of a cold reduce duration and symptom severity according to a 1992 study. Zinc, an antiviral agent and astringent, is released into the saliva, relieving cough, nasal drainage and congestion. Dr. Michael Macknin told CNN news. “It’s the first thing I’m aware of that actually decreased the duration of cold symptoms to this extent.” Researchers studied 100 patients who had cold symptoms for less than 24 hours, giving half of the patients a zinc lozenge and the other half a placebo. ” …… there was nearly a 50 percent reduction in the duration of the symptoms of the common cold.”

Zinc Boosts Brain Activity
Zinc is found in the vesicles of the mossy fiber system of the brain’s hippocampus. These fibers play a role in enhancing memory and thinking skills.

University of Texas researchers found that women deficient in zinc had a harder time on standard memory tests.

USDA scientists found lower cognition in men experimentally deprived of zinc.

Experiments have shown that accident victims who are given zinc supplements respond with improved cognitive function. Zinc is diverted to the healing tissues following injury or surgery and becomes less available for other essential functions.

Zinc Heals and Protects Skin

Zinc is essential for healthy skin. Topical zinc preparations (zinc oxide) has been used as an astringent to treat diaper rash, itching and chapped lips and skin. Zinc sulfate in a water based solution has been used for treating acne, cold sores and burns. Remember that zinc sulfate is a salt and can be quite caustic to raw tissue in high or moderate concentrations. Internally, zinc stimulates cell division, healing, proper connective tissue formation, and increases the transport of Vitamin A from the liver to the skin, helping to protect body tissue from damage and repair any damage present.

Zinc Stimulates Taste, Smell

Zinc activates areas of the brain that receive and process information from taste and smell sensors. Its importance to appetite was first demonstrated in 1972 when researchers showed taste disorders responded to zinc supplementation.

Zinc Improves Appetite

Levels of zinc in plasma were found to influence appetite and taste preference. Insufficient zinc has been linked to anorexia, which responds well to zinc replacement treatment.

Zinc Improves Mood

Zinc abnormalities also often exist in mood disorder patients. Zinc sulfate, taken as a supplement, appears effective in reducing fatigue, mood swings and changes in appetite

ARGH! I did put a link to the original at the bottom but its not there. It also cut off the last portion of the post. I cannot edit it now to put the rest of the text there.

Here is the link to read more: http://www.advance-health.com/zinc.html

Also, I had put in the above post, that I started my Zinc Supplements yesterday. 50mg tablets cut in half and taken two times a day (25mg at a time) for better absorbtion.

I have to try these zinc supplements. Anybody here have success with them? With a particular brand? If I take supplements along with a healthy diet, and no other vitamin mineral supplements, will that be enough?

I would suggest taking One-A-Day Men’s Health Formula. It has all of the vitamins and minerals you need, including 15mg of zinc.


The primary goal of PE should be to make your penis as healthy as possible in both form and function. If you do that, increased size will follow.

Agreed. The recommendations are in the post above. You should also perform the test included above to test your zinc levels periodically.

And how far over the suggested RDA is the dose you are taking oldman? 50 sounds like it over the top to me.

Zinc intake should be balanced against copper intake.

50 is a lot to be taken daily. 25-30 is ok!

Also try not having any calcium products 30 minutes before or after intake as it affects zinc absorption.


I have decided whatever I do I will move forward in life

Zinc is a very interesting item in naturalpathic and orthomolecular circles. Zinc and copper have a weird relationship, too much of one, ass fucks the other out of you. While this substance does much, it is the application or execution can make it harmful, helpful, etc…. Such as knowing when to dose, and with what, or more accurately how far away from the others as an example.

I know Lewd Ferrigno personally.

I know a certain body-building called ZMA (Zinc, magnesium and some other mineral) boost testosterone. It’s a bit expensive.

So Zinc is definitely very important for men!

Like most everything, a little is good, a lot is bad.

Very helpful information. Thanks.

Males, Females
9-13 years 23 (mg/day)
14-18 years 34 (mg/day)
19-70 years 40 (mg/day)
> 70 years 40 (mg/day)

I am taking 50mg/day every other day so it balances out to 25 per day. The Zinc tablets sold at Wal-Mart where I bought mine are 50mg tablets. I suppose I could take half each day and go to everyday, since I already cut them in half to take twice a day when I take them. Not sure why they sell 50mg tablets when 40 is the upper threshhold of the substance.
