Im Buch Dr. Rüdiger Schmitt, Simone Homm (Ärztin im Bereich Innere Medzin): Handbuch Anti-Aging & Prävention kann man auf Seite 107 [oben] lesen: Zink ist nicht nur einer der wichtigsten Vitalstoffe und an etwa 200 Reaktionen im Körper beteiligt, es reduziert auch Radikalschäden und stimuliert gleich mehrere Bereiche des Immunsystems. Einige Wissenschaftler stufen Zink inzwischen als eine regelrechte Altersuhr für die hormonelle Alterung ein. Die meisten Menschen liegen deutlich unterhalb der für die Alternsprophylaxe optimalen täglichen Zufuhr von 20 - 50 mg.
