Numerous studies have shown sub-optimal levels of zinc in many people of all ages, especially the elderly. According to one Australian study, 85 per cent of women and 65 per cent of men do not receive the recommended daily allowance for zinc in their diets.

Zinc is essential for a strong immune system, healing the skin, reducing scar tissue, collagen repair and plays an important role in literally hundreds of enzymatic processes in the body.
