Lowered zinc is already known do be associated with increased cellular stress however there's relatively recent research on zinc levels and cardiac health.

Imbalances in zinc levels are now linked to heart aarrhythmias and failure. Zinc is seen to have a role in calcium regulation - this is important as calcification is a major cause of heart complications.

"Unregulated zinc movements are linked with chronic heart failure and the study’s data provide a plausible mechanistic explanation of how this may occur."

Yes. It's interesting how zinc is an antagonist to copper absorption although some copper is required alongside iron to produce red blood cells. Deficiencies or large amounts of either to where the zinc/copper ratio is greatly disturbed is problematic. Nuts contain large amounts of copper - therefore those who consume nuts as regular snacks should ensure their zinc levels are within reasonable range. Always see a doctor. There are doctors in conjunction with labs who run specialized blood tests for these ratios.

Heart probably needs zinc to function just as iron stops anemia in the blood from happening. Makes sense. Good post datsgucci

White spots on nails are a classic sign of zinc deficiency, so are taste and smell loss! It’s wise to take a supplement from time to time because deficiencies can go unnoticed!

Yeah everything should be in a ratio of some sort. Eating the same foods all the time creates a deficiency somewhere.

The body retains stores of vitamins and minerals for a time frame before complete exhaustion. For vitamin B12 this is approximately 3 - 5 years, which many vegetarians and vegans eventually discover - much to their own dismay.
