Zinc is an essential trace mineral that is obtained through diet as the body is unable to make it. If zinc levels become low it can affect general health. Certain factors such as excessive exercise, stress, smoking, drinking coffee and alcohol also increase the excretion of zinc which may need to be replaced with supplements.
Your Slade Pharmacist can complete a simple test that will check if your zinc levels are at their optimum level.
