Zinc


Zinc is one of the main antioxidants and, naturally, the worse the environmental conditions, the more it is required by the body. It is a part of superoxide dismutase, which prevents the development of free radical processes at the earliest stages, and, consequently, the aging processes.
Due to zinc, the insulin structure in the pancreas is finally formed before it is released into the blood.
There is also the assumption that zinc together with chromium play an important role in the functioning of cellular insulin receptors. In general, it is proved that zinc contributes to the normalization of glucose and the reduction of cholesterol in the blood. It is actively involved in the processes of enzymatic digestion of sugars, and increasing their number in the diet requires adequate attention to its intake into the body.
Recent research has shown that one of the main causes of zinc deficiency, particularly in the blood, is the consumption of too salty or too sweet food for a long time. In this regard, control over the intake of zinc is particularly important for the full treatment of patients with obesity and diabetes.
It's sad to see a beautiful girl or boy with a disfigured eel face. And after all for a long time it is known, that in many cases youthful eels can be cured by means of enrichment of a diet with zinc.
Now on the drugstore counters you can find a lot of additives and medications containing this element: sulfate, sulfide, zinc gluconate, however, in natural combinations, zinc is found only in food.
Best of all, it is absorbed from processed and fermented products (unfortunately we rarely use them - tofu, miso, etc.), nuts of sprouted wheat, beans, briociola cabbage.
Tofu is a product of processing soybeans into milk, which then coagulates. This watery mass is wrapped in a coarse-mesh fabric and placed under a press - to remove excess fluid. The result is a gentle white substance, similar to cheese. Tofu is easily digested, very rich in proteins. There is a minimum of fat and sodium and no cholesterol at all.
Vitamin A, found in the liver, acts only in the presence of zinc. If there is no zinc, then no matter how much we take vitamin A, we can not make up for it, since the vitamin can not be released from the liver in this case, and the blood is not able to give it to the skin, the diseased tissues.
It should be borne in mind that in the body there is competition between zinc and copper. If zinc is abundant, it is possible that this will have a certain effect on the amount of copper (and also iron). Therefore, eating foods rich in zinc, still supplement it with food, which contains enough "live" vegetables or fruits, rich in salts of copper and iron.

Zinc

  1. Zinc
    Function Since zinc is an integral part of many enzymes in the body, it is important for a variety of metabolic processes, including for the synthesis of protein and nucleic acids. Zinc is absorbed, mainly in the duodenum. The main way to remove it is through the gastrointestinal tract and, to a lesser extent, through the kidneys and skin. Sources In general, zinc,
  2. Zinc
    Zinc deficiency is a widespread phenomenon among children in developing countries that occurs in most parts of Latin America, Africa, the Middle East and South Asia. It has been proven that zinc plays a vital role in the formation of metalloenzymes, polyribosomes, cell walls and in the functioning of cells, on the basis of which it is possible
  3. Introduce multivitamins and trace elements in the diet
    All children with refractory diarrhea should receive daily food fortified with polyvitamins and microelements for two weeks. The necessary nutritional supplements available in local stores are often quite acceptable; The least expensive are tablets, which can be grinded and added to food. Thus, it is possible to select all possible combinations of vitamins and
  4. Physiological and hygienic assessment of basic microelements.
    Microelements are chemical elements found in the tissues of the human body in concentrations of 1: 100,000 or less. To microelements also include chemical elements, in low concentrations contained in water, soil, etc. Some trace elements are absolutely necessary for the most important processes of the vital activity of the human body, as well as for the normal course of many metabolic processes
  5. Trace Elements
    Iron reserves of iron in the body are usually small. It is necessary for the synthesis of hemoglobin, myoglobin, enzymes. Manganese An integral part or activator of enzymes plays a role in the metabolism of matter in the bones. Zinc An integral part of enzymes. Lack of zinc leads to eczema, especially in the oral cavity, diarrhea, alopecia, hypogonadism. During surgery, there is a loss of zinc (Dolp,
  6. SYMPTOMS OF INSUFFICIENCY OF MICROELEMENTS IN BIRDS RATION
    Iron is contained in the body of the bird in an amount of 60-100 mg per 1 kg of fat-free body weight and is contained mainly in red blood cells in conjunction with hemoglobin. Participates in the process of carrying oxygen from the lungs to all tissues of the body. Signs of iron deficiency in the body are anemia, a decrease in hemoglobin in the blood, a decreased activity of redox
  7. Deficiency of vitamins and micronutrients
    Deficiency of certain micronutrients to which the baby was exposed in the prenatal period lead to specific neurological disorders. Such micronutrients are folic acid, iodine, iron, zinc, selenium, copper, magnesium, vitamins A, C, D, E, B6 and B12 (Shilina, 2007, Fundamentals of Healthy Nutrition, 2010). Iodine deficiency is the most serious threat due to the danger

  9. MINERALS BETWEEN IRON
    In countries where iodine deficiency is a public health problem, a legislative act on the continuous iodization of salt should be adopted and enforced. Many minerals are essential micronutrients and play a vital role in promoting growth, health and development. In this chapter, those that are most important when introducing
  10. Minerals
    Mineral substances are essential nutrients that must necessarily enter the body. The importance of minerals in human nutrition is very diverse: 1. Mineral substances in the body are part of the complex of substances that make up the living protoplasm of cells, in which the main substance is a protein. 2. Mineral substances are part of all intercellular and interstitial
  11. ANAPHYLAXIA AND ANAPHYLACTOID REACTIONS
    Definition Anaphylaxis and anaphylactoid reactions are a direct generalized manifestation of hypersensitivity to a specific antigen. Anaphylaxis involves the antigen and antibodies to IgE and is the result of preliminary sensitization to the antigen. The anaphylactoid reaction is realized by histamine and may occur upon first contact with the antigen. Activation of complement
  12. ACUTE RENAL INSUFFICIENCY
    Acute renal failure is a serious disease of dogs and cats, which manifests itself in the violation of the functional activity of the kidneys, accompanied by a violation of acid-base and water-electrolyte balance, a decrease in the excretion of various substances (water, potassium, creatinine, urea) from the body, and as a consequence, the delay of nitrogen-containing products formed in the process of catabolism.
