But Wait, There’s More…
Zinc isn’t normally the first thing to pop in your head when you head to the vitamin section for an immune boost, but Zinc is in fact the secret gem of supplements. If you were to ask the average person what supplement they would think of first in terms of boosting ones immune system, chances are they would answer: Vitamin C.
Vitamins are key components to boosting your immune system, but there are other highly effective, and complex supplements that deserve a little more recognition. Zinc is one of these important supplements that is technically considered an “essential trace element” and is often thought of as a “natural cold remedy”, yet, Zinc has so much more to offer your body’s health and well-being than we commonly consider and that is exactly why we specifically chose it to join the re:iimmune® formula.
According to researchers at the Department of Dermatology at the University of California,
zinc plays an essential role in numerous biochemical pathways: organ systems, including the integumentary, gastrointestinal, central nervous system, immune, skeletal, and reproductive systems… Zinc deficiency results in dysfunction of both humoral and cell-mediated immunity and increases the susceptibility to infection.

In other words; Zinc is good for your whole body! Not only does it boost your immune system, it is in fact crucially essential to your body’s immune response, hormonal function, nervous system, energy levels, and may lower your metabolism if your zinc levels drop below a healthy marker. Some symptoms that you may experience if you are in fact zinc deficient include:
- Poor concentration or memory
- Hormonal complications
- Nerve dysfunction
- Digestive issues, including diarrhea
- A slower healing process when wounded
- Abnormal hair loss
Zinc is more than simply a slight boost to your body’s immune function, but it is an essential nutrient that your body requires on a regular basis. When we mention zinc as a component to re:iimmune’s Hydrobiotic™ formula, we often title it simply as an extra immunity boost. In actuality it was chosen carefully for its smorgasbord of vital health components. When re:iimmune was created, the time was taken to hand pick each ingredient, analyze it’s potential to make people better, and chosen for the highest quality potential. So, the next time you’re feeling under the weather and you reach for your own glass of re:iimmune, you can feel confidence in the fact that every single piece of this recovery puzzle was put together to specifically help you get better, better™!
