Zinc is an essential trace mineral. Next to iron, zinc is the most common mineral in the body and is found in every cell. It has been used since ancient times to help heal wounds and plays an important role in the immune system, reproduction, growth, taste, vision, smell, blood clotting, and proper insulin and thyroid function.
Zinc also has antioxidant properties, meaning it helps protect cells in the body from damage caused by free radicals. Low zinc levels are sometimes seen in the elderly, alcoholics people with anorexia and people on very restricted diets. People who have malabsorption syndromes, such as Crohn's disease or celiac disease, may also be deficient in zinc.
Symptoms of zinc deficiency include loss of appetite; poor growth; weight loss; lack of taste or smell; poor wound healing; skin problems such as acne, atopic dermatitis and psoriasis; hair loss; lack of menstrual period; night blindness; white spots on the fingernails and depression.
Vitamin C is a water-soluble vitamin, meaning that your body doesn't store it. You have to get what you need from food and supplement.
Evidence suggests that many people may have low levels of vitamin C. Smoking cigarettes lowers the amount of vitamin C in the body, so smokers are at a higher risk of deficiency.
Signs of vitamin deficiency include dry and splitting hair; gingivitis and bleeding gums; decreased wound-healing rate and a decreased ability to ward off infection. A severe form of vitamin C deficiency is known as scurvy.
