Abstract: Objective - To review the top 6 relevant papers regarding zinc and immune function.
Discussion - The chiropractor’s perspective is upheld that zinc supplementation may assist with the body’s immune function. It is acknowledged that the formal scientific literature remains cautious but is favourable to the idea that in clinical terms, there is no harm and possible benefit for guiding patients to consider zinc supplementation.
Conclusion - Chiropractors should consider the benefits of zinc supplementation in these days of virulent respiratory infection. There is a very little risk of any adverse event related to such a recommendation.
