The Importance of Zinc and Best Way to Acquire Enough of it on A Vegan Diet

Researches have shown that plant foods do not provide large amounts of zinc compared to animal products, hence vegans need to make sure that they are getting enough sources of zinc in their diet.

Silver Spring, MD: Zinc is an essential nutrient that helps the immune system and metabolism function. The human body needs a regular supply in order to stay healthy, especially if vegans do not get them from seafood, lean meats, eggs and so on. Plant foods do not provide large amounts of zinc compared to animal products. 

Zinc deficiency may lead to poor growth, delayed sexual maturation during the teenage years, as well as male impotence. Furthermore, zinc deficiency may also lead to hair loss, poor wound healing and skin sores or dermatitis. Other signs may include loss of taste, weight loss, diarrhea, and impaired immune function. This in turn leads to increased susceptibility to illnesses such as cold and flu.

Zinc cannot be stored in the human body and it is consistently lost through the feces, skin, hair, and semen in males. A daily supply of zinc through diet is therefore crucial. Thankfully there are plenty of vegan sources of zinc that can be included in a plant-based diet.

For instance, sources of zinc include wholemeal bread, couscous, sesame seeds, baked beans, peanuts, oats, hemp seeds, miso paste, spinach, chickpeas, lentils, mushrooms, walnuts and tofu. 

However, those who find supplementing easier and more convenient can try Nurishable Triple Play that combines zinc 50mg, Vitamin D3 10000iu, and Vitamin C 500mg into all in 1 capsule for major convenience and cost saving, instead of taking 3 different vitamins. 

“Based on our vision, we created a three-in-one supplement without compromising its potency and effectiveness. This supplement contains 50mg of zinc, vitamin D3 10000iu and 500mg of vitamin c per serving. These three powerful vitamins are the simple way to boost the immune system without consuming a bunch of capsules and wasting a lot of money.” said a spokesperson from Nurishable. 

With over 300+ ratings on their Amazon store, it is no doubt Nurishable takes pride in the quality and effectiveness of their products. 

“This is the powerful combination vitamin. It offers you the maximum zinc you should be taking each day. You have to make sure that any other multivitamin isn't going to put you over the limit. The vitamin D is what I've been taking for years so even though 10,000 units sound like a lot it's really not. I've vitamin C at 500 mg has a good dose but I take three times that amount of each day, sometimes even more. Overall this is an excellent vitamin to take but make sure if you're taking other things along with it that you do the math. Highly recommended.” reviewed by Steve Taylor on their Amazon shop.
