Zinc is widespread in nature and is also present in the human body: zinc accumulates mainly in the cells of bones, muscles, skin, skin, carotid tissues and liver, but it is also present in brain tissues and plasma (in smaller quantities).

Asthenia is a condition that manifests itself with a state of general weakness due to the reduction or loss of muscle strength, with easy fatigue and insufficient reaction to stimuli. In these cases the state of fatigue does not depend on work or effort made and does not disappear with rest.

There are various types of asthenia, for example the muscular one localized to the lower and / or upper limbs, the psychophysical one that derives from depressive forms, excessive stress or anxiety or even the spring asthenia given by the change of season.
Therefore, this particular disorder can have a psychic origin (it happens in 50% of cases, especially in anxious or depressed patients) or physical (it therefore depends on the presence of other pathologies).
