Zinc is a trace element that is necessary for a healthy immune system. A lack of zinc can make a person more susceptible to disease and illness. It is responsible for a number of functions in the human body, and it helps stimulate the activity of at least 100 different enzymes. Only a small intake of zinc is necessary to reap the benefits. It is found that zinc helps prevent colds from occurring and also plays a role in maintaining skin integrity and structure. Zinc can be found in the East Coast IV Immune Booster. East Coast IV acquires its IV Zinc supplement from an FDA approved 503b sterile compounding pharmacy.
