  • Immune System
    • Significant survival benefit and decreased bacterial burden associated with zinc supplementation. 2
    • Zinc supplementation also resulted in enhanced phagocytic activity, greater neutrophil recruitment in the peritoneal cavity and NET formation, suggesting a possible mechanism for improved bacterial clearance and survival.2
    • Zinc supplementation results in decreased serum cytokine levels and decreased myeloperoxidase activity in lung tissue, suggesting attenuation of the systemic inflammatory response. 2
