Zinc, selenium and chromium

  1. 1. Zinc, Selenium And Chromium A SLIDESHOW PRESENTED BY: SAMSON MIRANDA
  2. 2. ZINC • A mineral that is essential to the body and is a constituent of many enzymes that permit chemical reactions to proceed at normal rates. • Zinc is involved in the manufacture of protein (protein synthesis) and in cell division. • Zinc is also a constituent of insulin, and it is involved with the sense of smell. Food sources of zinc include meat, particularly liver and seafood; eggs; nuts; and cereal grains.
  3. 3. Food In Which ZINC Is Present
  4. 4. Pumpkin Seed • They’re not only remarkably high in Zinc, but they provide other benefits to the body like helping you sleep better at night. • Keeps your blood sugar levels looking good.
  5. 5. As if you needed any additional reasons to eat chocolate, here’s one more. You’re getting quite a bit of Zinc in chocolate, but of course it’s also pretty high in calories so you don’t want to overdo it. There are antioxidants in dark chocolate that you don’t get with milk chocolate, and you end up avoiding a lot of the sugar and added fat if you stick to dark chocolate Dark Chocolate
  6. 6. Crabs If love to eat crab legs, there’s good news, it’s relatively high in Zinc and can help you meet your daily needs in this area. Crab is also a good source of protein, and doesn’t weigh you down with a lot of calories. It’s very low in fat, but you’ll want to watch out for the sodium levels, which can run rather high, leading to water retention and an increase in blood pressure.
  7. 7. Mushroom Regardless of which mushrooms you go with, there will likely be a good amount of Zinc in them. Mushrooms are a great add-on to any meal, and they can flavour up a pizza or simply be cooked up and eaten as a side dish. They have a healthy assortment of vitamins and minerals, and several types of mushrooms have been shown to have anti-cancer benefits.
  8. 8. Pork Pork is not the healthiest meat you can choose, and is not as high a quality protein as lean beef, chicken breast, or turkey breast, but it still contains Zinc in large amounts, and lean pork still has some health benefits and can’t be written off entirely. Always choose pork that is organic, to avoid the antibiotics and other chemicals that are injected into and fed to conventionally raised pigs.
  9. 9. Watermelon Seeds Here’s a seed that often gets spit out, and many times doesn’t even show up because the watermelon is seedless. But if you dry watermelon seeds, and even toast them, they can be a wonderful source of Zinc, as well as other good things for the body, like protein, magnesium, healthy fats, and a host of B Vitamins. This makes them a great snack to consider, since most of us are not in the habit of eating them.
  10. 10. Function of ZINC in our body.  Improve Athletic performance and strength.  Support male/female reproductive health and fertility.  Become more sensitive to insulin and prevent diabetes.  Improve sleep, Cognition & Energy levels.  Elevate mood and avoid depression.
  11. 11. SELENIUM • An essential mineral that is a component of an antioxidant enzyme, glutathione reductive, that is key in tissue respiration. • Food sources of selenium include sea foods, some meats, such as kidney and liver; and some grains and seeds. • Too much selenium may cause reversible balding and changes in the nails, give a garlic odor to the breath, and cause intestinal distress, weakness, and slowed mental functioning.
  12. 12. In which food SELENIUM is present.
  13. 13. CHICKEN Because of the widespread availability of chicken it’s one of the easiest foods to start getting more of if it’s not already part of your regular diet. Opt for organic chicken breasts to get a high quality source of protein without all of the antibiotics and growth hormones pumped into conventional chickens. It’s low in calories, low in fat if you go with skinless, and 27% of chicken breast is pure protein.
  14. 14. CHEESE This is happy news to those that enjoy their cheese and want another reason to eat it. Cheese gets a lot of flack for being high in fat, calories, and sodium, but some try to defend it because of its calcium and protein content. If you’re looking to increase your selenium and you don’t eat meat, but you’re OK with consuming dairy products, this might be one avenue to meet your selenium requirements.
  15. 15. TUNA Tuna contains a decent amount of selenium, as well as protein and omega-3s, all of which play a part in a healthy and balanced diet. You’re advised to only eat tuna a few times a week due to mercury concerns, but most health experts agree it’s worth including in your diet for all of the benefits it provides. Albacore is a great choice in tuna and is available at most grocery stores.
  16. 16. SUNFLOWER Sunflower seeds are also relatively high in selenium, and also have healthy fats that your body needs to be at its best. So even though it’s relatively high in fat, it’s coming from polyunsaturated and monounsaturated fat, with only 4% coming from saturated fat. Opt for dry roasted to keep the saturated fat count down.
  17. 17. Function of SELENIUM in human body Making special proteins, called antioxidant enzymes. These play a role in preventing cell damage. Protecting you after a vaccination. Prevent certain cancers Prevent cardiovascular disease Protect the body from the poisonous effects of heavy metals and other harmful substances
  18. 18. CHROMIUM • Chromium is a mineral our bodies use in small amounts for normal body functions, such as digesting food. • Chromium exists in many natural foods including brewer's yeast, meats, potatoes (especially the skins), cheeses, molasses, spices, whole-grain breads and cereals, and fresh fruits and vegetables. • Drinking hard tap water supplies chromium to the body, and cooking in stainless-steel cookware increases the chromium content in foods.
