Have you ever played with magnets? Did you know your body is filled with little magnets?
Zinc is like the positive pole of a magnet, and toxins, like viruses, are a negative pole.
When a virus enters your body and starts looking for cells to penetrate, it is attracted to the zinc and boom, the zinc helps disengage it’s ability to penetrate your cells.
This isn’t a cure but a prevention, and when combined with other positive magnets, like antibiotics, you can build an army protecting your cells from an invasion.
In a nutshell, zinc is like an armed guard standing at the border-wall protecting your cells.
Zinc is found in your cells throughout your body, and as I wrote above, it helps your immune system from invading bacteria and viruses by protecting your cell walls.
Zinc is especially needed during pregnancy, infancy, and childhood because human bodies need zinc to develop properly.
Zinc can also help wounds heal, and is important for your senses of taste and smell.
Zinc picolinate is one of the forms because it is “chelated“, and that means that it attaches to picolinic amino acids to help it pass easier into your intestines for absorption and attach to your cell walls.
An abundance of research over the past 50 years demonstrates the antiviral activity of zinc against a variety of viruses. The therapeutic use of zinc for viral infections such as herpes simplex and the common cold are proven beyond any doubt.
I supplement with zinc daily as a prevention for COVID.
Zinc will be in the armory on my border wall, for sure.
