Zinc

All organisms require zinc in trace amounts, as it is a cofactor in over 100 enzymes. Zinc deficiency especially impacts the immune system and skin health.

Oysters, sesame seeds, pumpkins seeds, lentils, garbanzo beans (chickpeas), mushrooms, spinach, asparagus, cashews, quinoa, and shrimp all offer zinc.
