In this video, I want to talk about the relationship between zinc and your liver. Zinc is probably one of the most important minerals for the liver. Symptoms of a zinc deficiency are identical to the symptoms of a liver problem.
A zinc deficiency, like a liver problem, could increase the risk of:
• Loss of appetite
• Loss of body hair
• Altered taste
• Testicular atrophy
• Immune system impairment
• Decreased drug detox capacity
• Liver cancer
• Inflammation in the liver
• Skin problems
Does a zinc deficiency cause the liver to create these symptoms, or is it the liver damage that’s creating these symptoms as well as a zinc deficiency? This is hard to tell because the symptoms above could be created by both a zinc deficiency or a liver problem.
By getting more zinc through your diet or supplements, you could potentially reduce the above symptoms of a zinc deficiency or liver problem. You may even be able to prevent the symptoms, as well as protect the liver.
Foods rich in zinc:
• Beef liver
• Beef, lamb, and other meats
There is zinc in whole wheat, but the problem is that the bran in wheat products prevents the absorption of zinc. To get zinc, you would want to avoid grains and sugar because sugar also depletes zinc. We don’t retain zinc very well, so if you’re not consuming zinc, you could be deficient.
