Zinc Deficiency

Updated: Jan 7

As we all know, our bodies communicate with us in many ways, and one of those ways is through our nail beds. After taking several courses in analyzing body signals, it has been found that if your nails have spots, lines (vertical or horizontal), or any “spooning” (where they curve up at the end), it could be a sign of a zinc deficiency. Zinc is an essential mineral that our body needs to function properly, and a deficiency in zinc can lead to several health problems. Therefore, it is crucial to monitor your nail beds regularly. By taking care of our body's needs, we can lead a healthy and fulfilling life.

"Zinc oxide deficiency is seen most commonly in people who do not absorb zinc well due to digestive disorders such as inflammatory bowel diseases or who have undergone gastrointestinal surgery. Those with chronic liver or kidney disease are also at risk!" ~ Harvard School of Public Health

Don’t ignore the warning signs…

Zinc deficiency doesn’t just cause ugly nails, hair loss, dry skin, mouth ulcers, and weak teeth…

But can lead to brain fog, obesity, and low immunity.

Low zinc levels are a leading cause of major health crises that can be easily prevented, even reversed if caught early…

Unfortunately, most people have no idea they are zinc deficient.

Even worse, you may think you get enough zinc from your daily supplement… but you aren’t.

If you see signs of low zinc and/or digestive absorption then I suggest New Chapter's Fermented Zinc Complex as it's proven to have a better absorption mechanism. In addition, this product supports includes ingredients that may support a decrease in inflammation and optimal cardio, immune, and digestive health.

Signs of deficiency include:

  • Poor appetite

  • Depressed mood

  • Decreased immunity

  • Delayed wound healing

  • Diarrhea

  • Hair loss

  • Loss of taste or smell

  • Insomnia
