Zinc Benefits Infants with Serious Infection

Zinc supplements reduce the duration and severity of illness in childhood diarrhea
Zinc may be the boost that infants in certain parts of the world need to recover from serious infection. A study in Lancet found that infants with serious infection in New Delhi, India had a 40% better chance of recovering with zinc supplementation.

Zinc improves outcomes

In this study, researchers looked at the role of zinc supplementation in treating infection and reducing death rates in 700 infants with serious infection who were between 7 and 120 days old. The infants were randomly assigned to receive zinc sulphate (10 mg of elemental zinc) or placebo daily, and they were evaluated for improvement for a study period of 21 days. All infants received antibiotic treatment.

Results showed that the zinc group had a 40% reduced risk of treatment failure compared with the placebo group. Zinc supplementation was more effective in children who had diarrhea compared with those who did not.

The study authors comment, “A reduced risk of treatment failure will shorten time in hospital, lower use of high-generation antimicrobials and treatment cost, and possibly reduce mortality.” Further research is needed to understand the role of zinc supplementation in serious infection.

More on zinc and your health

  • Global look. While severe zinc deficiency is rare among Americans, children in developing areas such as Africa and Southeast Asia are often deficient in this important mineral. Zinc helps our immune system fight off infection, and prior research has shown that children who do not get enough zinc have a higher risk for serious infections such as pneumonia and meningitis. Research has also shown that zinc supplements reduce the duration and severity of illness in childhood diarrhea, according to the study authors.
  • Your daily zinc. For recommended amounts of zinc and other important nutrients, look at the latest recommendations. Groups of people who may not get enough zinc include people with inflammatory bowel disease, vegetarians, pregnant women, women who are breast-feeding, older infants who are breast-fed, and alcoholics.
  • Food sources. Zinc can be found in a variety of foods including shellfish (particularly oysters), meat, poultry, fortified foods, and some nuts.
  • Talk with a doctor. Too much zinc can lead to bad health effects and toxicity, and zinc supplements may interfere with some prescription medications. Talk with a doctor about the risks and benefits of supplementation.

Additional Information

Additional Info

Add two heaping scoops of Serious Mass to a blender filled with 24 oz of water. Blend for 45-60 seconds. Then add a few ice cubes and, if desired, other calorie-contributing ingredients (see Supercharge Your Serious Mass) and blend for an additional 30-45 seconds. Tips: Mixing two scoops of Serious Mass with 24 fl oz of nonfat or low fat milk instead of water will give you a thicker, creamier, higher-calorie shake. New users may find if beneficial to begin with 1/2 of a serving daily for the first week and then gradually increase to 1 or more full servings several times a day. Serious Mass is a substantial weight-gain supplement that can be used to feed serious calorie needs in a variety or different ways. Between Meals: Drink 1/2-1 serving of Serious Mass between meals to maintain positive nitrogen balance and support a high-calorie diet. Post-Workout: Begin drinking 1/2-1 serving of Serious Mass 30-45 minutes following exercise to support maximum recovery. Before Bed: Drink 1/2-1 serving of Serious Mass about 45-60 minutes before bed to provide nutrients to recovering muscle throughout the night. Note: For best results use Serious Mass combined with intense weight training (3-5 times per week) and a sensible whole foods diet. Also, keep in mind that sufficient recovery between workouts impacts your ability to gain lean mass. Allowing at least 48 hours between workouts involving the same body parts is recommended. Store in a cool, dry place.
