The superhighway for Complex B Vitamins to flow throughout our bodies – without enough Zinc, these essential vitamins aren’t able to do what they do best, ease anxiety.
Plays a major part in modulating the brain and body’s response to stress from head to toe.
Zinc is one a few minerals that doesn’t get stored in the body for use at a later time - it’s used when needed or discarded. But, it’s highest amount in the body is found in our brains, the center of our response to stress, anxiety and worry.
300 or more enzymes in our bodies use Zinc as a buddy to help them do their thing from making DNA to protein synthesis and regenerating cells. But when we get stressed, Zinc needs to be available to jump in to do some critical cell signaling to tell our brain to not over-produce stress hormones in the first place, but especially to tell it to stop so we don’t stay anxious all day.
