Zinc is the most abundant intracellular trace element and is involved in a large variety of enzymic, structural and regulatory physiological functions. One of the critical structural functions of zinc is as a stabilizer of phospholipids and thiol groups within cell membranes.

In childhood, zinc deficiency symptoms include impairment of growth and poor appetite, which clearly could result in a vicious cycle developing.

In the adult, mild zinc deficiency, especially in the elderly, leads to depression of the immune system. Specifically, zinc deficiency has been shown to:
? Reduce the overall mass of lymphoid tissue.
? Reduce thymus hormone activity
? Reduce functionality and number of lymphocytes, natural killer cells and neutrophils
? Modify cytokine production

Male reproductive function can also be adversely affected by mild zinc deficiency.
