Zinc and Sports Nutrition
Zinc is involved in literally every phase of growth, cell reproduction and tissue repair.
Obviously, that's why it is one of the most important minerals in sports nutrition.
Bodybuilders go for growth and every workout causes micro-injuries to your muscles.
No matter which sport you are in to, recovery and tissue repair will always be important.
While zinc deficiency can slow down your progress and recovery, that doesn't mean that overdosing can be beneficial. Actually, overdosing one mineral usually leads to a functional imbalance of another mineral. Find more sports nutrition related topics at nutrition main.
