Zinc and Kelp

Zinc

Dosage: 10 - 50 mg, or Zinc Lozenges try 4-5 a day for one week

Benefits of Zinc

- Helps to breakdown and absorb proteins

-supports normal growth and development

- sexual function, libido

- wound healing

Zinc is a vitamin that almost everyone is deficient in, that being said there is no real classification of what a zinc deficiency looks like and they are no real tests. The best way to tell if you need to increase your zinc intake is to take a simple zinc test. Mix 100ml with 1 drop of zinc solution if you can barely taste the zinc it means your deficient.

There are many forms of Zinc , the best ones are Zinc Amino Acid Chelate and Zinc Picollate. We loose a lot of zinc through sweating, stress and a number of other things so its important to maintain healthy zinc levels.

Kelp

Dosage: 1000 - 1500mg daily

Benefits of Kelp

- Natural source of essential minerals

- Great way to supplement a healthy diet adding amino acids and natural vitamins

- improves body's PH levels

Other Supplements - Fish Oil, Basic Multivitamin, Spirulina

If your worried about your vitamin and mineral intake , get your doctor to do a full blood test and help you determine what your body needs in supplement form, everyone is different :).

      Wow! What a complete article. I had no idea diet played such a big part in dandruff elimination and control. I like all the food and vitamins you put on my plate in the Hub. I eat fish, cheese, eggs, a lot of veggies and fruit - and I don't have dandruff. Neat article, thanks. Don White
