Zinc is a co-factor in many enzymes that regulate growth and development, digestion and nucleic acid synthesis. Potassium is an important component of cell and body fluids that helps regulate heart rate and blood pressure.Manganese used by the body as a co-factor for the powerful antioxidant enzyme, superoxide dismutase.
