Zinc-Rich Chili Con Carne

By BePure

Zinc is involved in over 300 enzyme pathways in the body—it's a pretty important member of the nutrient team responsible for our body running happily and healthily.


Zinc deficiency can affect all sorts of functions in our body from mental health, immunity, mood, hormone and gut health.

Our diet should be our primary source of zinc, and high quality supplementation is a good option for people who struggle to maintain optimal levels from food alone.

We have pulled together a warming winter recipe rich in zinc to support all those pathways that depend on it!
