Slow healing is not right

Zinc is becoming more important by the day. Zinc is an essential trace element that is critical for metabolism. Now scientists have shown that zinc is critical for normal cell apoptosis – cell death. In the absence of zinc, cancer cells proliferate when they shouldn’t; causing cancer. Also, zinc deficiency is named in neurodegenerative diseases such as Alzheimer’s disease. Zinc is required for hundreds of enzyme reactions in the body and also helps build bones, heal muscles, tendons, and ligaments. A zinc deficiency will slow healing processes considerably and zinc deficiency means reduced glutathione levels that protect cells from oxidative damage. Did you know that a zinc deficiency is linked to depression and anxiety disorders? Always take the glycinate, gluconate or chelate form of zinc and reserve the zinc oxide for the outside of the body only.

If you are healing slowly, there is something wrong.
