Why we need Zinc?
Scientists conducted a study by collecting information on the total per capita consumption at the household level from 7 rounds of the National Sample Survey of Consumption Expenditure: 1983 (round 38), 1987 to 1988 (round 43), 1993 to 1994 (round 50), 1999 to 2000 (round 55), 2004 to 2005 (round 61), 2009 to 2010 (round 66), and 2011 to 2012 (round 68). Intake data was paired with Indian food composition to estimate per capita dietary zinc (1). The prevalence of inadequate zinc intake has risen from 17.1% to 24.6% in 2011/12, reaching a maximum of 26.3% in 2009/10.

A systematic review and meta-analysis was conducted to evaluate the efficacy and safety of zinc for treatment of common cold, by evaluating the data from several randomized clinical trials. The results from the meta-analysis showed that oral zinc formulations may shorten the duration of symptoms of common cold. Of 17 trials involving a total of 2121 participants, those receiving zinc had a shorter duration of cold symptoms when compared to that of placebo given patients (1).
