Zinc is known to have major influences on the development and integrity of host defences against infection. The barrier functions of the skin and of the pulmonary and gastrointestinal tract are diminished by zinc deficiency. All the major components of the immune system suffer as well. Zinc is used to help in case of sore throats, as an immune booster and can assist in cases of a runny nose and hayfever.
