Immunity Boosters: Zinc

As we prepare for the fall, many of us find ourselves wondering how we can take special care to boost our immune system with a healthy lifestyle.

One nutrient key to our immune functioning is Zinc. This nutrient is also unique in that our body does not have a specialized storage system for it, so we are required to have a daily dose for optimal health.

Foods that contain zinc

  • Red meat
  • Poultry
  • Beans
  • Nuts & seeds
  • Dairy

The Daily Value (DV) of zinc is 11mg. Many people fall short of this recommendation and are suggested to ask their doctor about supplementation. PRO Medical offers a high quality, professional grade supplement for purchase. For more details call our Medical Center.

Another great way to add zinc into your routine is through our IV Therapy and Injection Clinic. Our signature IV Therapy PRO Meyers vitamin and nutrient infusion is perfect for optimal health and wellness. The IV will strengthen and boost your immune system, detoxify your body and increase energy. It includes Vitamin C, Calcium, Magnesium, B Complex, and of course, zinc.
