If you think you might be suffering from zinc deficiency, and you want to improve your levels quickly, you may consider taking an all-natural supplement. Supplements generally contain several forms of zinc, including zinc acetate, zinc gluconate, and zinc sulfate. The percentage of elemental zinc varies by form. According to the National Institute of Health (NIH), ├▒Research has not determined whether differences exist among forms of zinc in absorption, bioavailability, or tolerability, ├« so it's important to regularly consume these top 10 high zinc foods: 

Pumpkin seeds

Grass-fed Beef

Lamb

Cashews  Chickpeas

Mushrooms

Chicken

Cocoa powder

You can treat your zinc deficiency right away with supplements. Zinc is found in many multivitamin supplements. It's also found in some cold medicines, though you shouldn't take cold medicine if you're not sick. You can also buy supplements that contain only zinc.

Diet changes

Long-term treatment for zinc deficiency starts with changing your diet. To start, consider eating more: 

red meat

poultry

seeds

wheat germ

wild rice

oysters

If you're a vegetarian, it might be more difficult to get the amount of zinc you need from the foods you eat. Consider baked beans, cashews, peas, and almonds as alternative sources of zinc. 

Add more of these foods to your diet to help prevent deficiency.
