let’s talk about the benefits of taking zinc for your sleep I’ve done a lot of other videos on zinc it’s incredible mineral it is a trace mineral which means that you need it in small amounts it’s in seafood shellfish red meat it’s in a lot of other foods but it’s an essential cofactor okay what does a cofactor mean cofactor it’s something that helps in the activation of enzymes which are proteins and I’m not necessarily talking about digestive enzymes I’m talking about the enzymes that are protein machines that build tissue that help you detoxify they do a lot of things but zinc is involved in over 300 different protein enzymes and it’s in over a thousand transcription factors now one of those well it’s something that will turn your genes on or off at the right time and in a certain amount so zinc is involved at the cellular DNA level for many many things if you’re deficient in zinc you’re not going to grow properly your you might have stunted growth hypogonadism which means you’re not going to produce enough testosterone you could have cognitive deficits you may not have the sense of taste or smell your immune system is weakened and you can be susceptible to infections viruses especially of the lung and like I said before zinc is involved in DNA big-time but as far as sleep goes it plays an essential role in neurotransmitters of the brain especially an area of the brain called a locus coeruleus that is a part of the brain that’s involved in the sleep and awake cycle zinc is also involved in the metabolism of melatonin which is stimulated by darkness which helps you fall asleep so zinc has a calming effect on your central nervous system and by the way so does magnesium potassium calcium and b6 so if you’re going to take zinc make sure you take it in the evening not in the morning I would recommend maybe a chelated zinc and it wouldn’t hurt to take some of these other nutrients if you were gonna take zinc as a supplement so and if you’re wondering what food has the most sink oysters they’re at the top of the list and I put a link down below to show you another video I did on zinc so you could see what foods are high in zinc I’m also gonna put a link of an interesting study that talks about zinc the highest amount of zinc is found in people who get between seven and nine hours of sleep as compared to people who get less than seven hours of sleep which is interesting and the last thing I’m going to point out is that a lot of people are deficient in zinc either because they’re doing a high carbohydrate diet or they’re doing too many grains with the especially the whole grains which have the fiber because that has something called phytic acid which blocks zinc so if you wanted to increase the quality sleep and not get up so often you might want to try zinc so if you want more knowledge on how to create a healthy body subscribe now and get daily notifications

2:52 What causes zinc deficiency
Zinc is a powerful trace mineral. Trace minerals are nutrients you need in small amounts. One of the many benefits is it can help you get deeper sleep.
Zinc is a cofactor. A cofactor is something that helps in the activation of enzymes, which are proteins. These protein machines help build tissue, detoxify the body, and many other things. Overall, zinc is involved in 300 different enzymes.
Zinc is also involved in over 1000 transcription factors. A transcription factor is something that will turn certain genes on and off at the right time. This is at a cellular DNA level.
If you have a zinc deficiency, you can experience:
• Decreased growth
• Reduced taste and smell
• Poor immune function.
Zinc plays a vital role in neurotransmitters, especially in the area of the brain called the locus coeruleus. This area of the brain is involved in the sleep-wake cycle. It also helps with the metabolism of melatonin, which is why zinc has a calming effect.
If you take zinc, make sure you take it in the evening and not in the morning. I recommend chelated zinc supplements. You can also get zinc from oysters and other foods. A high-carb diet can lower your zinc, especially when you eat a lot of grains.
If you want to get better sleep, try taking zinc.
