Featured Audio: Zinc

Natural Standard is pleased to announce the availability of multi-media audio recordings of over 200 evidence-based English Bottom Line Monographs. Audio will be available for all English Foods, Herbs Supplement topics in the coming months.

This month’s featured audio recording is Zinc. Zinc has been found to be effective for treating diarrhea, stomach ulcers, and zinc deficiency. There is good evidence to support its use for acne, ADHD, herpes simplex virus, immune function, and sickle cell anemia. Zinc has also been studied for Wilson’s disease (excessive copper in the body), although results are mixed. Zinc has gained popularity for preventing the common cold, but research is still unclear.

Access to the full audio recording is now available here.
