Zinc deficiency is such a serious global problem that it´s responsible for 176,000 diarrhea deaths, 406,000 pneumonia deaths and 207,000 malaria deaths — primarily in Africa, the Eastern Mediterranean and South-East Asia.
The best way to avoid zinc deficiency and maintain sufficient zinc serum levels is to consume foods high in zinc regularly. The best sources of zinc are animal foods because the essential mineral’s bioavailability, which is the fraction of zinc that’s retained and used by the body, is highest in animal meats, seafood and eggs.
Zinc gluconate is the most common over-the-counter zinc supplement that can be found in your local drug store. Zinc gluconate and zinc acetate are often added to cold remedies, including nasal sprays and lozenges.
