Recently, due to the COVID-19 pandemic, people are looking out for natural ways to boost their immunity. Of course, when we talk about immunity, Vitamin C is the first thing that comes to our mind. However, very few know that zinc-rich foods are equally essential for our immunity and play a significant role in keeping us healthy. 

Zinc is a trace mineral, which means that our body requires it in tiny amounts. Zinc is necessary for the activity of over 300 enzymes, protein synthesis, wound healing, cell growth, and a healthy immune system. Unfortunately, our body cannot synthesise zinc, and we need to consume zinc-rich foods regularly in small amounts for proper growth and functioning.
