A daily Intake of "Zinc" is needed to Boost Your Immune system

According to Kathleen Blanchard, a Registered Nurse, "Zinc is essential for proper functioning of all of the body's cells. In some cases, zinc supplements can boost health and well-being. Zinc is obtained from foods and is added to some. Dietary supplements can boost zinc levels in the body. Zinc can also be found in lozenges for colds and sore throats, as well as in other over-the-counter medications to treat colds. Zinc is not stored in the body. A daily intake is needed to maintain balance in the body".
