Zinc deficiency is a widespread concern for people around the world – nearly 1 in 3 individuals may be deficient. Because the signs of a zinc deficiency mimic those of other common disorders, it’s often overlooked.
Even if you’re getting enough zinc in your diet, certain conditions can keep you from absorbing and utilising this vital mineral. Stress, pregnancy, eating a vegetarian diet or one that’s high in grains, legumes, seeds and nuts (which contain compounds which can interfere with absorption), and simply being over 60 puts you at a higher risk of being deficient.
Zincplays a critical role in immune function, healthy cell growth, and a healthy inflammatory response, so you want to make sure a zinc deficiency isn’t affecting your health.
Seleniumis another mineral that may be just as important as zinc for healthy cells and overall health support.
New Zealand has low soil levels of selenium, vastly increasing your risk for deficiency.
Not all selenium supplements are created the same way. Studies show that a specific form of standardised selenium-enriched yeast is a more effective form. It is the full protein form of selenium. Other supplements and multivitamins may contain a single amino acid form like selenomethionine.
Because supplementing with any type of zinc can reduce your copper, another important micro-nutrient, a very small amount of copper has been added to Zinc Plus Selenium.
Note: It's a good idea to monitor total selenium intake from all supplements taken, to ensure you don't overdose beyond what is recommended by your healthcare practitioner.
