Zinc is a trace mineral that is needed for many important functions in the body. The human body contains approximately 2-3 grams of zinc, mostly in the skeletal muscles and bones. Zinc is also found in the kidney, pancreas, retina, teeth, hair, skin, liver, blood cells, prostate, and testes.
Zinc deficiency may cause problems with growth, diarrhea, hair loss, and immune function.
Zinc has been found to be effective for treating diarrhea, stomach ulcers, and there is good evidence to support its use for acne, ADHD, autism, herpes simplex virus, immune function, and sickle cell anemia. Zinc has also been studied for Wilson's disease (excessive copper in the body.) There is wide research done on zinc about it's effectiveness in autism where excess copper is noted.
There is still controversy on the role of zinc for many other diseases. Much evidence is conflicting or unclear.
