In this video, we’re going to talk about why zinc starves deadly bacteria.
In the Journal of Nature Chemical Biology, a study was published that outlined zinc’s incredible ability to starve off a deadly bacteria called streptococcus pneumonia.
Streptococcus pneumonia lives in the sinuses and throat. This can be friendly bacteria until just the right conditions occur for it to turn pathogenic.
If you are zinc deficient and you’re going through stress, this bacteria can become very harmful. This is because these conditions can cause your immune system to become compromised.
Streptococcus pneumonia kills one million people every year from pneumonia and meningitis.
This bacteria is dependent on manganese. Manganese allows this bacteria to transport. Zinc acts as a key to lock up manganese so the bacteria can’t be transported.
However, most people are deficient in zinc because of the phytic acid we consume in grains. Phytic acid blocks zinc.
To get enough zinc in your diet, you need:
• Red meat
• Low grain consumption
• A healthy gut
