Who Needs Meat and Seafood? These 15 Recipes Are Packed With Plant-Based Zinc! You’ve probably seen a bottle of zinc supplements in the drugstore, but have you ever wondered what it is and what it does for your body? Zinc is a micronutrient. To break it down easily, macronutrients like potassium, magnesium, and calcium are necessary for energy, muscle maintenance, healthy appetites, and other important bodily functions. Micronutrients, on the other hand, are individual vitamins, amino acids, and minerals that also help our bodies thrive. Because our bodies do not produce zinc on their own, a daily intake is required to help maintain these functions. Zinc helps our immune system function and it is essential to healthy pregnancies. While certain types of meat and seafood are high in zinc, we can easily get it from plant-based sources, too!
