Is Zinc Good For Diabetes


Hello, I’m Titus Mason from TheDiabetesCouncil.com,
researcher, writer and a type2 diabetic. Today I’m going to answer the question, is
zinc good for diabetes. But before we get into that, make sure you

to Avoid’ by clicking the link below.” You probably have zinc either in your pocket
or purse right now. Or perhaps in a jar or in a small compartment
in your car. I would be willing to wager on that. Why am I so confident? Because all pennies made after 1982 are actually
at least 95% zinc. That is right. Most of the pennies you have are just copper
coated. You might even have zinc in some of the gadgets
around your house. Many types of batteries include zinc in their
composition, perhaps even the lap top you are on right now. You may have zinc on your finger, around your
neck or on your wrist as zinc is used in a lot of jewelry as well. So if this material is used to make money,
batteries and jewelry, can it possibly be good for diabetics? Well, all of us have zinc as a makeup of our
human anatomy as well. Our bodies use zinc for many functions including
aiding in immunity, helps in digestion, growth and repairmen of tissue and can aid as an
anti-inflammatory. So zinc is important to us humans. But can taking extra really help with those
of us who have Type 2 diabetes? Two studies were conducted on the possibility
of taking zinc as a means of preventing diabetes. One by the University of Newcastle in October,
2013 concluded after studying nearly 9,000 women over a 6 year period that zinc supplements
was effective in the aid of prevention of Type 2 diabetes. Another study conducted by Harvard came to
a similar conclusion after studying 82,297 women over a 24 year period publishing their
findings in 2009. So zinc has the ability to help prevent diabetes,
but is it good for someone who already has diabetes? A study at the University of Chile says yes,
at least in animals. When zinc supplements were given to various
animals their fasting glucose levels were reduced. There is a limited number of studies on humans,
but the evidence is growing that zinc can be a benefit to humans as well. Zinc, is it good for diabetes. Many feel it is. If you decide it might be beneficial to you
I have a couple of suggestions. First and foremost, as with any supplement,
consult your health care provider before you take anything. Secondly, be careful in your dosage. Your doctor will certainly guide you through
this, but the recommended daily dose or women is 12mg of zinc and 15mg for men. I hope this answered your question if zinc
is good or bad for diabetes. Don’t forget to get your diabetes shopping
