Chapped Lips? You Could Be Deficient In This One Nutrient!

A picture of chapped lips with the words: “Zinc deficiency can cause chapped lips, as well as dryness, irritation, and inflammation on the sides of your mouth”.

Zinc is very important for our overall health and there are many people deficient in this important mineral.

Zinc is a nutrient that people need to stay healthy. Zinc is found in cells throughout the body. It helps the immune system fight off invading bacteria and viruses. The body also needs zinc to make proteins and DNA, the genetic material in all cells.

In my practice I use hair mineral analysis for testing for the presence of heavy metals in the body and also for mineral deficiencies and Zinc deficiency is one that comes up often.

If you have chapped lips you may want to try adding some Zinc to your wellness protocol and also make sure that you are eating lots of fruits and vegetables to help hydrate the body and to provide your body the micro-nutrients it needs to function properly.

And of course, if you need a recommendation for a good source of high quality Zinc, please reach out and I can help you with that.
