Health benefits of Tin (Sn)
Tin (Sn) is an element vital to human general health. Daily intake of tin ranges from 1 to 3 mg. In the past when tin cans and pans were used, tin intake was ten times bigger. Researchers conducted on animals have shown that the insufficiency of tin can cause reduced growth, loss of hearing, loss of hair, and reduced feeding efficiency. In one research it was proven that tin can help with depression. Tin is also available in all vegetables and fruits in small amounts. Plants absorb tin from the soil hence level of tin in them depends on the quality of the soil.
Health benefits of Zinc (Zn)
The health benefits of Zinc include proper functioning of the immune and digestive systems, control of diabetes, reduction of stress levels, energy metabolism, and an increased rate of healing for acne and wounds. Also, it is helpful in terms of pregnancy, hair care, eczema, weight loss, night blindness, colds, eye care, appetite loss, and many other minor conditions.
Zinc, being an important mineral, plays a vital role in protein synthesis and helps regulate cell production in the immune system of the human body. It is mostly found in the strongest muscles of the body and is found in especially high concentrations in the white and red blood cells, eye retina, skin, liver, kidneys, bones, and pancreas. The semen and prostate gland in men also contain significant amounts of zinc.
Health benefits of Copper (Cu)
The health benefits of copper include proper growth of the body, efficient utilization of iron, proper enzymatic reactions, as well as improved health of connective tissues, hair, and eyes. It is also integral for preventing premature aging and increasing energy production. Apart from these, regulated heart rhythm, balanced thyroid glands, reduced symptoms of arthritis, quick wound healing, increased red blood cell formation, and reduced cholesterol are other health benefits of copper. The health benefits of copper are crucial for an overall healthy existence, as this mineral enables normal metabolic processes in association with amino acids and vitamins. It cannot be produced within the body and therefore needs to be added from external food sources. It is the third most prevalent mineral in the body and it is mostly carried by the blood plasma protein, Ceruloplasmin. In order to enjoy the health benefits of copper, it must be included in the daily diet, as it is used up in daily bodily processes.
