The Key Mineral Many Men Are Missing
When I was growing up, it seemed everyone was focused on iron. Back then we knew a lot less about the roles minerals play in health. But we knew iron is important for transporting oxygen to your cells.
More recently, calcium has taken the spotlight. Low calcium levels are linked to weak, brittle bones… a problem affecting millions. So you’ve probably heard a lot about your need for calcium.
But there’s another key mineral that often doesn’t get enough attention… especially when it comes to men’s health. It’s zinc, “the manhood mineral.”
Zinc is a trace mineral. In other words, you don’t need a lot to stay healthy. But the relatively small amounts you need, you really need – especially if you’re a man.
Not long ago, a team of scientists reviewed some of zinc’s important functions in the journal of the Institute of Food Technologists…
- People with low zinc levels are more likely to suffer brain fog and mental confusion
- Zinc promotes healthy blood pressure
- Low zinc levels are linked to liver problems
- Women with healthy zinc levels have fewer problems with pregnancy
- Zinc is key for maintaining normal blood sugar levels
- People with healthy zinc levels are less likely to have hormone problems
- Low zinc levels are linked to poor wound healing1
But for men, zinc is especially important. The highest concentration of zinc in the human body is found in male reproductive organs.
That’s right, men. Zinc plays many roles in human health. But it’s absolutely vital to keep your manhood in good working order.
And that includes your prostate gland. In fact, good prostate health appears to be directly tied to getting enough zinc.
Scientists at the University of Washington looked at the results of a study of more than 35,000 men. They found men who had higher zinc intake were far less likely to have certain advanced prostate problems.2
Indian researchers were able to compare zinc levels in another study. They found men with serious prostate problems had up to 83% less zinc in their tissues compared to men with healthy prostates. And the most common prostate problem was linked to a 61% lower level of zinc.3
Boosting your zinc intake can be tough by diet alone. Oysters are packed with zinc… but oysters have 10 times – or more – the zinc of most other “good” sources. Although men need only 11 mg of zinc a day, there’s a fair chance you’re not getting that much.
That’s why taking a nutritional supplement with zinc is a good idea for men. Especially if you’re over 40, when prostate problems often begin to show.
Once you approach middle age, a nutritional supplement designed to promote prostate health makes good sense. Along with zinc, other herbs and nutrients that support a healthy prostate include…
- Rye pollen extract
- Cranberry extract
- Saw palmetto
- Pygeum Africanum
- Beta sitosterol
But whatever else you take to boost prostate health, be sure you get enough zinc. As you age, it’s one of the cornerstones of holding on to your manhood.
Yours in continued good health,
