What researchers say about Zinc for Menopause

Researchers have concluded:

  • A moderately high intake of zinc (811 micromol/day; 53 mg/day) did not induce changes in copper metabolism that resulted in unfavorable changes in bone or mineral metabolism. However, low dietary zinc (45.9 micromol/day; 3 mg/day) apparently resulted in undesirable changes in circulating calcitonin and osteocalcin. As a moderately high intake of zinc decreased magnesium balance, further study of the possibility that a high intake of zinc is a health concern for individuals consuming less than the recommended amounts of magnesium is warranted.1
  • Our study suggests that values of uNTx, uZn and sOC were significantly lower in the patient group than those in control group and in postmenopausal women with osteopororsis, calcitonin reduces the concentrations of uNTx, uZn and sOC.2
  • Within several weeks, postmenopausal women biologically adapted to absorb a relatively uniform amount of 5 mg Zn/d when controlled, Zn-supplemented diets supplied consistent Zn intakes between 14 and 47 mg/d.3
  • The present results suggest that zinc levels are lower in the erythrocyte compartment of pre-menopausal women with breast cancer.4
  • Ca-U(ob), Mg-U(ob) and Zn-U(ob) did not vary substantially throughout life. Ca-U(ob) and Zn-U(ob) were slightly higher and lower, respectively, in post-menopausal women than in pre-menopausal women, but such changes were too small to affect life-long stabilities. Thus, the urinalyses did not suggest need of additional supply of Ca, Mg or Zn at advanced ages. Correction for CR or SG may induce a bias in evaluation of age-dependent changes in mineral concentrations, because CR and SG decrease in accordance with age.5

About Menopause

Menopause is the cessation of a woman's reproductive ability, the opposite of menarche. Menopause is usually a natural change; it typically occurs in women in midlife, during their late 40s or early 50s, signalling the end of the fertile phase of a woman's life.1

About Zinc

Zinc, in commerce also spelter, is a chemical element with symbol Zn and atomic number 30. It is the first element of group 12 of the periodic table. In some respects zinc is chemically similar to magnesium: its ion is of similar size and its only common oxidation state is +2. Zinc is the 24th most abundant element in the Earth's crust and has five stable isotopes. The most common zinc ore is sphalerite (zinc blende), a zinc sulfide mineral. The largest mineable amounts are found in Australia, Asia, and the United States. Zinc production includes froth flotation of the ore, roasting, and final extraction using electricity (electrowinning).2
