Zinc

Our body requires Zinc to function properly especially in the areas like metabolism, wound healing, growth and vision. I try to find where the highest concentration of zinc in the food we consume daily. Interesting table was discovered http://www.healthyeatingclub.com/info/books-phds/books/foodfacts/html/data/data5j.html.  This page outlines well where to find zinc. Adult needs about 12-16 milligrams per day. Here is highest sources of zinc per 100 grams.

 

Cocoa Powder 7 milligrams

Bran Wheat  16 milligrams

Yeast 8 milligrams

Crab boiled 6 milligrams

Oysters raw 45 milligrams
