CHECK YOUR ZINC

Good Health (Australia) - - Be Informed -

For boost­ing im­mu­nity, zinc is No 1. If you’re sus­cep­ti­ble to colds and flu, zinc deficiency could be to blame. A GP can check your lev­els with a blood test, but in the mean­time start to eat lots of zinc-rich foods like spinach, pump­kin seeds, nuts, beef, lamb and oys­ters, and you’ll get plenty through diet alone. If you want to take a sup­ple­ment and you’re al­ready sup­ple­ment­ing with iron, avoid tak­ing it at the same time as zinc be­cause they com­pete for ab­sorp­tion.
