Do you catch colds frequently? Do you suffer from acne? Low immunity and poor skin could be signs that you are not getting enough zinc. So, up your zinc intake by including these foods in your diet, recommended by nutritionist Priya Kathpal.


Sesame-seeds THS

Haven’t tried sesame seeds yet? Well the high content of zinc in it can be a good reason to try it out. 100 g serving of sesame seeds provides around 10mg of zinc.


Wheatgerm THS

Wheatgerm is a powerhouse of zinc that packs in 70mg of zinc per 100g serving. It can be a good idea to sprinkle some wheat germ on your salad.



Cashew nuts are also particularly rich in zinc. Only a 100g of cashews provide around 5.6mg of zinc.
