5:35 - You may need more zinc if...
"There are certain people that that should probably at least supplement with zinc in some way. I mean, it is involved in quite a few things like the cell division and the immune system. As you're saying in some people that might not realize that they could be deficient in zinc, like people with different gastrointestinal conditions, vegetarians actually need about 50% more zinc than non-vegetarians, which is kind of interesting. Pregnant women, of course, you know, because there's a constant cell dividing inside, you know, the womb, you're carrying another person and it has to grow.
