Zinc: Too much or too little spells trouble

[embedded content]

Zinc is one of those nutrients you don’t hear a lot about. People are all over vitamin C, but zinc, an equally important nutrient for a strong immune system tends to take a back seat to all the hype.

But unlike vitamin C where you’ve got to try hard to get too much (the human body can tolerate up to 2,000 mg a day but that’s the limit) — zinc can be a lot trickier…

If you have a severe zinc deficiency, you know it. You have skin rashes, severe diarrhea, hair loss, slow healing wounds, night blindness, and a bunch of other less-than-subtle symptoms.  And since zinc is critical to your immune system, a severe zinc deficiency puts you at risk for developing serious and even deadly infections, like pneumonia and sepsis.

But even if you’re just slightly short on zinc, it can have a pretty negative impact…
