ZINC IS IMPORTANT FOR DIABETICS

ADEQUATE zinc is necessary for the healthy function of most hormones including insulin. Zinc binds to insulin so that insulin is adequately stored in the pancreas and is released when glucose is released into the bloodstream. Zinc improves cell health and is a component of the enzymes needed for insulin to bind to cells allowing glucose to enter and be used as fuel.

INSULIN Sensitivity means the cell is receptive to the process of insulin binding to the cell. When insulin binds to the cell, the cell becomes receptive to the entry of glucose. If the cell is resistant to insulin glucose stays in the bloodstream causing high blood sugar leading to fat gain. When zinc concentration falls with a corresponding reduction in insulin secretion and peripheral insulin sensitivity, if continuous, will lead to diabetes.
