Zinc plays an important role in sugar, fat and protein metabolism and is thus a key factor in food intake and the transformation and utilization of food in energy. If too little energy is made available to the body through the lack of zinc, the organism will slow the metabolism and lead to symptoms such as susceptibility to stress and tiredness. A slower metabolism consumes less energy accordingly, that means the body will also metabolize fewer calories, which can lead to weight gain. The limited protein production due to zinc deficiency leads to a bad healing of wounds and no muscles can be built.
Zinc is especially important for the male body because it promotes sperm production. In addition, it can cause an optimization of the "efficiency" of sperm, so increase their mobility and mobility.
