Zinc – An Antiviral Mineral

Just over 30% of the world’s population is deficient in zinc.

In a study in Spain, researchers took blood samples from 249 people with COVID-19 admitted to the hospital.

When zinc levels were tested, those with the lowest zinc levels were more likely to die.

–For each unit increase in zinc at time of admission, risk of dying was reduced 7%.

Zinc has specific antiviral actions and helps control inflammation.

–Works well when paired with selenium and vitamin D, which have similar properties!
