FAQs

You can take zinc supplements if you’re pregnant or breastfeeding, in fact, some supplements designed for pregnant women include zinc in their nutrients.

 

However, you should speak to your doctor or pharmacist before taking any supplement if you’re pregnant or breastfeeding.

 

This will help both you and them to be sure that it’s safe for you and your baby.

The NHS recommends that men over the age of 18 should take in 9.6mg of Zinc every day, whereas women over 18 should take in 7mg of zinc a day.

 

You can meet these levels if you eat a balanced diet, but many choose to take zinc supplements to make sure they’re getting the recommended amount.

 

If you do take zinc supplements, you should not take more than 25mg a day unless advised otherwise by your doctor.

New research suggests that zinc levels in the body might contribute to the formulation of kidney stones, a common condition that can be very painful.

 

However, other research suggests that zinc can actually stop the development of calcium crystals that make up the stones.

 

So, the bottom line is if you have kidney problems and are thinking about taking zinc, always speak to your doctor first to ensure that it’s safe for you to do so.

Zinc is on par with vitamin C when it comes to protecting your immune system, and it can even help with the growth and development of your baby during pregnancy, with some studies suggesting that zinc might help women avoid going into early labour.

 

If you have diabetes, you’re more likely to have a lower amount of zinc in your body, and it’s been said that zinc may help to control blood sugar in those who have the condition.

 

Zinc has anti-inflammatory properties and may help to calm acne, in addition to improving eye, heart and blood vessel health.
