Here are five vital reasons to get more zinc as you age

1. Protect Prostate Health: Ignoring the signs of an enlarged prostate (BPH) can lead to kidney and bladder problems—not to mention prostate cancer. Even the less serious problems—like frequent or painful urination—can be a serious inconvenience. Protect your prostate now to avoid problems later. And zinc is a great place to start. Not having enough can cause DNA damage in prostate cells. But high levels of zinc can promote cell death in BPH cells. This helps shrink your prostate gland down to a normal size, helping to alleviate and even prevent BPH symptoms.

2. Preserve Hearing: Research shows that zinc’s anti-inflammatory and antioxidant effects can help fight hearing loss. Having higher levels can improve the quality of hearing in people with sudden hearing loss. Another study found taking 50 mg a day for eight weeks reduces buzzing or ringing in the ears. It may very well work for you or someone you know: It’s effective in 82% of people.
