Use of zinc in mental wellbeing.
Zinc is one of the essential minerals our body needs to function, including our mental wellbeing. The mineral is responsible for activating more than 100 enzymes and is needed for neural functioning. ⠀
Most of the zinc we need come from our diet, where it is absorbed in the small intestine before travelling through the body. Within the brain is the limbic system, the brain structure that controls our behaviour and stress response, which needs a high amount of zinc to regulate the communication between brain cells.
