Zinc - indispensable in strength training
Zinc is an essential trace element and indispensable for the protein, sugar and fat metabolism, where it plays an important key role. It is present in the human body in an amount of several grams and is stored primarily in the brain and in the central nervous system in pools. Zinc is essential, meaning it can not be synthesized by the human body itself, but must be fed through the diet. Especially in weight training zinc is of central importance. It helps to maintain the natural testosterone levels in the blood and thus to support the buildup of muscle. However, the consumption of zinc is increased during the hard training, because the training is still a stressful situation for the body. The organism reacts to it with zinc losses. The increased sweat production also flushes out part of the zinc in the body. It is therefore necessary to replenish the zinc reserves just after training. The trace element is also responsible for the formation of red and white blood cells and proper wound healing. Without zinc, no vitamins could be formed in the body, especially no vitamin E, B1 or B12. It also contributes to the normal maintenance of bones, nails, skin and hair. According to WHO (World Health Organization), zinc is the number one deficiency element. It is estimated that around 2 billion people worldwide suffer from zinc deficiency. On physical and mental stress, the organism reacts with high zinc losses, also excessive alcohol consumption or the intake of antibiotics can lead to it. Zinc deficiency manifests itself among other things in infertility, hair loss or a more susceptible to diseases immune system.
