Zinc is an essential trace mineral found in most tissues of the body, especially those in the thyroid and reproductive organs. Zinc is complexed with a variety of peptides, amino acids and enzymes. It plays a crucial role in the synthesis of protein, DNA and RNA and is essential to maintain the normal function of the pancreas and prostate gland, as well as for reproductive organ growth. Zinc has a specific role in protein synthesis, is essential for cell growth and the regeneration of tissue, as well as for the utilization of Vitamins B1 and A. Zinc is involved in tissue respiration by the intake of oxygen and expulsion of carbon dioxide, such as superoxide dismutase, an antioxidant enzyme which has a role in combating free radicals in the body.
