What are the symptoms of zinc deficiency?
There are many signs of zinc deficiency, like weakened immune system, tiredness and fatigue, appetite loss, hair loss, skin problems, weak nails with white spots etc.
Which food is rich with zinc?
Meat is an excellent source of zinc, especially red meat. Zinc can be found in all different kinds of meat, including beef, lamb and pork. Shellfish are also healthy sources of zinc, especially Oysters, which contain particularly high amounts.
Some food of non-animal origin also contain high levels of zinc. Legumes, seeds, dark chocolate, dairy and whole grain all contain substantial amounts of zinc. However, vegetarians traditionally have lower zinc levels because the body breaks down zinc found in meats more efficiently.
