We know Zinc to be an essential trace mineral; and one recommend by Dr. Joel Wallach as necessary for optimal health. Zinc can be found is most cells in the body and is important for a variety of cell functions in the body; including cell division, cell growth, wound-healing and breakdown of carbohydrates. Zinc deficiency can result in frequent infections, stunted growth, slow down wound-healing and problems with taste, smell and sight. Although zinc is most notably known for its cellular function and immune-boosting support, new research has found that it is also highly beneficial for pregnant women.
A recent study, conducted at the High Institute of Public Health at Alexandria University and theEgyptian Ministry of Health, found that women who took zinc supplements during their pregnancy had fewer pregnancy complications, and had less cases of newborn infections. The study took 675 healthy pregnant women (20-45 yrs of age) with low zinc levels, and divided them into three groups: zinc alone supplementation (30 mg ZnSO4 daily), combined supplementation of zinc and multivitamin (30 mg ZnSO4, Vitamins B1, B6, D3, C and E daily), and a placebo group (270 mg lactose). The results found that stillbirth and preterm delivery, as well as neonatal morbidity (mainly due to respiratory tract infections), were significantly lower for the two supplemented groups. Additionally, they also found that the women taking the zinc supplementation (alone and with a combined multivitamin) also showed less second and third stage pregnancy complications.1
Although pregnant women are highly encouraged to consume enough folic acid and iron during their pregnancy, we can see that there are other nutrients that are vital for a healthy pregnancy and delivery; such as zinc. Plus, zinc is necessary in the development and growth of an infant and child.
All individuals, not simply pregnant women, should make sure they are consuming enough zinc in their diets to keep their body functioning properly. A healthy dose of zinc can provide you with several cellular benefits and is especially beneficial when you need to give your immune system a boost. Zinc Fx™ contains 10 mg (67% of your DV) of zinc per serving to give you that perfect boost of zinc your body requires, with a great taste too!
