For more info: https://draxe.com/zinc-deficiency/?utm_campaign=Youtube-Feb-2015&utm_medium=social&utm_source=youtube&utm_term=zincdeficient Today I’m going to share with you the five warning signs that you’re zinc deficient. About 75% of people in the world are deficient, so being deficient in zinc is very common. The 5 warning signs you’re zinc deficient: 1.) If you get sick a lot or have immune system issues 2.) Have leaky gut (http://draxe.com/7-signs-symptoms-you-have-leaky-gut/) 3.) If you struggle with diarrhea or IBS 4.) Thinning hair 5.) Inflammatory skin issues like acne, eczema, dermatitis, psoriasis One of the biggest factors in causing zinc deficiency is high levels of emotional stress. The second most common cause of zinc deficiency is over-exercise. The third most common reason your zinc deficient is if you’re pregnant or breast feeding. Lastly, if you’re older, you may tend to have malabsorption, which causes a zinc deficiency. In order to get more zinc in your diet, you need to consume more zinc-rich foods. The top 5 zinc-rich foods are pumpkin seeds, oysters, grass-fed beef, sprouted nuts and seeds, and peas. Additionally, probiotics are a key supplement to take when zinc deficient because it can help your overall absorption of nutrients.

Dr. Axe, you are very Informative & get down quickly to the point. I was very deficient in magnesium and zinc. Thank you.. I'm very stressed out. I had a very bad experience a few weeks ago. I would like for you to check out; Zilis Ultra Cell Hemp Oil. Zilis.com/presentation with Steven Thompson founder & CEO. Dr. Derrick De Silva has formulated a lot of great products that has a high absorption rate of 94%. Compared with most other brands of only 3-6% absorption rate. It is taking America by a storm. Thousands of testimonies. Outstanding results. I would love to have you on my team. You reach out to so many people. This is also good with pets. I like following you more than any other doctor.
Thank you so much for this videao!

Anything on tinnitus? I hear very well. Just recently developed this tinnitus bs that has given me anxiety. I was a very bad vegetarian for 5 yrs. No vitamin intake are anything. Since the tinnitus started 2 months ago I have since then gone to a seafood based diet. Not sure what I’m deficient in. But my hope is to rid of this tinnitus & anxiety that is ruining my life 🤦🏾‍♂️😡😞

You said pumpkin seeds are high in zinc BUT they’re also high in copper ! Copper makes zinc go down lol so that’s not the brightest suggestion. ALSO, not everyone does great with fermented foods!!! I feel horrible and that’s because it’s histamine

While I generally find the information you provide helpful, it's worth mentioning that it's very offputting to hear you refer to irritable bowel syndrome as an inflammatory bowel disease. While dealing with IBS may certainly be difficult & uncomfortable, it is not a disease of inflammation, and to discuss it as such discounts the very serious nature of actual inflammatory bowel diseases. There's enough misinformation and a lack of understanding for these different conditions as it is, as someone who brings up these illnesses and is in the public eye, you have a responsibility to provide information that is accurate to the best of your ability, and at the very least not further add to the misinformation. There may be parallels between the experiences of those who suffer from IBS and IBD but there are far more significant differences & it would be quite inappropriate to discount that.

"The top 5 zinc-rich foods are pumpkin seeds, oysters, grass-fed beef, sprouted nuts and seeds, and peas." Why grass-fed beef, and not non-grass-fed beef? Also, why sprouted nuts and seeds, and not non-sprouted nuts and seeds?
Sahaja yoghini (2 months ago)
Sprouted nuts and seeds contain a lot of enzymes with great healing capacity.

Unless the gut heals overdoing these foods will not help. Once the gut starts to heal then things start to change, start with a good healthy diet that is whole food, and use collagen, avoid meds and vaccines and stress. Good video doc

I`ve had gout strikes off and on for about Ten years. I`d about one or two assault yearly. I got this gout treatment “unique vovom press” (Google it) out of pure desperation to alleviate my most recent gout assault that was progressively getting worse during the period of fourteen days. Great product one of the ONLY gout treatment options that actually works each and every time!
