Zinc is an "essential trace element"; very small amounts of zinc are necessary for health. The body does not store excess zinc so it must be eaten regularly. Common dietary sources of zinc include red meat, poultry, and fish. Zinc deficiency can cause short stature, reduced ability to taste food, and the inability of testes and ovaries to function properly.
Zinc helps the normal function of the immune system, fertility and reproduction, normal vision, maintenance of normal hair, skin and nails.
