Why Is Zinc Important for Children?
Zinc is something that we hear about and see a lot of in our day-to-day lives - especially so if you are a parent. It's everywhere you look - nappy rash creams, sunscreen, the thick white paste you smear on your kids like war paint before they take to the cricket pitch. But, did you know that it plays an essential role within the body as well?
More than a feature readily seen in sunscreen products, Zinc is a mineral that works in a number of amazing ways.
Zinc the Antioxidant
One of the main benefits of Zinc is that it has antioxidant actions. This means that it helps to reduce free radical formation within the body.
Zinc the Skin Supporter
Helping to promote and maintain skin health is also one of Zinc's winning qualities. This includes helping the skin to regenerate, maintaining skin structure and assisting with wound healing. Essential for the cuts and scrapes that may be earned from rambunctious adventures.
Zinc The Eye Champion
Yes, you read that right! Zinc works busily within the body to help maintain healthy vision and eye function, so your kids can spot the treats from a mile away (not really, but you get our meaning).
Zinc the Immune System Defender
As a parent, we're sure this caught your interest. While schools, daycare and playgrounds can seem like germ incubators, Zinc helps to maintain immune system health within your little one. With Zinc's help, they can hopefully have their immune system functioning operating optimally.
Zinc the Overachiever
On top of the above, Zinc also helps to support nervous system function, maintaining nerve conduction and cognitive function. And, if that's not enough, it also assists in the healthy growth and development of your child!
