Energy H2O naturally contains 0.02 mg/L of zinc. Zinc is involved in numerous aspects of cellular metabolism. It is required for the catalytic activity of approximately 100 enzymes and it plays a role in immune function, protein synthesis, wound healing, DNA synthesis, and cell division. Zinc also supports normal growth and development during pregnancy, childhood, and adolescence and is required for proper sense of taste and smell. A daily intake of zinc is required to maintain a steady state because the body has no specialized zinc storage system.
A variety of foods contain zinc including beans, nuts, certain types of seafood, whole grains and fortified breakfast cereals. Energy H20 is an excellent source to ensure the appropriate amount of zinc is incorporated into you daily diet.
