Zinc

Low blood levels of zinc may be linked to an increased risk of pneumonia amongst the elderly, suggesting the benefits of supplements for this at risk population, according to research.

Zinc is one of the most plentiful trace elements in the body, second only to iron. It mediates many physiological functions and is believed to be essential for maintaining a healthy immune system.

Zinc protects against cell-damaging, cancer-causing free radicals. A study showed that when low blood levels of zinc was found in conjunction with low blood levels of magnesium death rates for the 30-60 age group increased dramatically.

You can get your daily allowance of zinc [12 milligrams a day] from crab, oysters, pork, poultry, beans, cashews, and yogurt. Or find a good multivitamin with less than 15 milligrams. Too much zinc can inhibit other important minerals from doing their job.
