Origins of Zinc Sulphate
Zinc is a mineral found in every cell of the human body that is essential for the healthy functioning of the body. It is known as a trace mineral and is the second most abundant trace mineral in the human body following iron. Zinc is considered as an essential micronutrient, which means that it cannot be produced by or stored in the body. Instead, it is acquired through natural dietary sources such as oysters, red meat, legumes, and nuts and seeds. As the human body does not store excess zinc, it can be recommended to consume additional zinc as a supplement if it is lacking in your natural diet.
Zinc has historically been used for thousands of years to make alloys such as brass, but it was only in the 1700s that it became recognised as an element and its use as a dietary component began. There are many different forms of zinc which can be taken for different benefits. Some of these forms include zinc sulphate, zinc gluconate, zinc acetate, zinc picolinate, and zinc citrate. These types differ in how much zinc they contain and their solubility levels.
Zinc sulphate as a dietary supplement is an inorganic compound that is produced by treating zinc-containing metals with sulfuric acid and contains around 23% elemental zinc.
Benefits of Zinc Sulphate
Zinc is vital for the human body and it has many benefits. It is essential for the normal functioning of the immune system and plays an important role in cell division and protecting cells from oxidative stress. It also contributes to normal cognitive functioning and is important for the maintenance of healthy bones, hair, nails, skin, and vision.
Additionally, zinc contributes to metabolic functioning, including macronutrient metabolism, acid-base metabolism, carbohydrate metabolism, fatty acids metabolism, and Vitamin A metabolism. It also plays a vital role in DNA synthesis, which contributes to protein synthesis, cell division, and fertility and reproduction. Lastly, it helps maintain normal levels of testosterone in the blood.
