Zinc is a mineral which is required for proper sense of taste and smell. According to the National Institutes of Health’s Office of Dietary Supplements, a “daily intake of zinc is required to maintain a steady state because the body has no specialized zinc storage system.”  “According to the National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey III, 35% to 45% of adults 60 years of age or older had zinc intakes below the estimated average requirement of 6.8 mg/day for elderly females and 9.4 mg/day for elderly males. (This could be one of the reasons that those over 60 were much more impacted by Covid than those younger in age.

Zinc deficiency may lead to loss of appetite, impaired immune function, weight loss, delayed healing of wounds, eye and skin lesions, and smell and taste disturbances. Older adults are especially affected by changes in taste sensations because of age-related gustatory dysfunction, use of multiple medications, increased frailty, and zinc deficiency,” states the National Institute of Health.

A number of people who had Covid lost their taste and smell. Some have reported they never got it back.  I’ve talked to several people who lost their sense of taste and/or smell after the Covid test. That was undoubtedly due to the fact that Covid test swabs are sterilized with the highly carcinogenic chemical ethylene oxide. (On packages it often says “sterile EO.”) I have talked to several people who lost their smell and/or taste rater the Covid test. Download my free booklet to learn more about the hazards of Covid nasal swab tests and what you can do if exposed to EO. In the future, only get the saliva test which is safe. Download my free EO booklet for more info.

I’ll be on Steele Truth with Ann Vandersteele this evening at 9:20 pm ET discussing EO.
