Zinc is a mineral our bodies need to function. Zinc’s #1 mission: keep our immune system working properly. Zinc also acts an antioxidant. It promotes cell and tissue growth, heals wounds, and breaks down carbohydrates. Zinc also helps suppress inflammation.
I ws surprised to learn how important zinc is to the brain. A lack of zinc is linked to decreased learning ability. Studies show zinc may help to protect the blood/brain barrier due to it being an antioxidant. Zinc also improves memory and cognition.
You can find Zinc in animal protein such as beef, pork, and chicken. Oysters have a lot of zinc, or you can take a supplement. Zinc is a good supplement to take to help you stay health in this time of COVID.
Question: Do you have any health tips to share? I’d love to hear them.
My story, Mr. Christmas Elf is available on Amazon.
Jules is a hard working girl who can barely afford bus fare. Elvis is an eager Christmas Elf looking to do a good deed and move on. Will a little Christmas magic help bring a deeper meaning to the season for both of them?
“Look.” I put my hands on the steering wheel and tried to give Mr. Christmas Elf my best stink-eye. “Don’t get me wrong, I appreciate the muffler fix, but people don’t usually pop out of nowhere offering to fix mufflers. Seriously – this repair has to cost around five hundred dollars. Who are you?”
Elvis wrinkled his nose. “I’m Elvis, one of Santa’s elves, and I was sent to fulfill your Christmas list, though world peace is a toughie. I might not be able to swing that one.”
“Very serious. Why would I lie? Elves don’t lie.”
I arched an eyebrow. “Most people don’t believe in Santa Claus.”
“That’s their problem, not mine.”
MR CHRISTMAS ELF is available on Amazon as an Ebook for 99 cents and is in the Kindle Unlimited Program.
REVIEW: 5 Stars, Kindle Customer:
This has a lot of humor and the setting is New Hampshire at Christmas time. What could be better. I could picture it all in my head as I read the story. I felt like my heart was warmed, and I was helped at the end to feel better about life in general. Very uplifting reading!
