After iron, zinc is the second most prevalent trace metal in the body. Zinc, a vitamin found throughout your body, aids in the functioning of your immune system and metabolism. Zinc is also essential for wound healing as well as your senses of taste and smell. Zinc catalyzes enzyme activity, helps to build proteins, and regulates gene expression. It can be found in a wide range of foods, including meat, chicken, seafood, and cereals. Malnutrition-related zinc insufficiency is the 11th leading cause of death in the global distribution of disease burden, accounting for 1.8 million fatalities per year.
