The 2 Essential Minerals in Satisfide®

You might have heard a lot about zinc lately as an immune-boosting supplement. But did you know that it plays a vital role in men’s sexual health, too?

It’s estimated that between 17% of men around the world are deficient in zinc. Not only does that put your immune system at risk and cause your body to heal from cuts and wounds more slowly, but it can also negatively affect your sex life.

Zinc is known to support normal testosterone levels. When zinc and male testosterone are too low, the following can happen:
  • Fatigue
  • Loss of muscle mass
  • Acne
  • Slow-healing wounds
  • Hair loss or hair thinning
  • Long-term respiratory infections
  • Low libido
  • Erectile dysfunction
  • Reduced sperm count
Further, the older you get, the more likely you are to experience a zinc deficiency. While it’s relatively common in men in their 40s and 50s, once you reach the age of 65, it becomes even more prevalent.

Because of zinc’s importance in male sexual health and performance, we included it in Satisfide’s® formulation.

Satisfide® contains a unique, proprietary blend of seven herbs that support healthy testosterone levels as well as the brain chemicals related to desire. After all, even if your body is raring to go, if your mind isn’t in the right place, the experience won’t be as enjoyable for you or your partner.

To ensure that you have enough zinc, Satisfide® includes 5 mg, which is about one-third of the recommended daily allowance (RDA) for men.

Why Satisfide® Includes Zinc and Copper

If you look at foods that are high in zinc, you’ll also see that they contain copper, too. These foods include:
  • Shellfish
  • Nuts
  • Seeds
  • Lobster
  • Leafy greens
  • Meat
  • Dark chocolate
There’s a reason that these minerals are often found together in nature. It turns out that they compete for absorption. So, if you take one without the other, then you could run the risk of developing a deficiency.

The reason this is important is that many supplements include zinc without copper. Manufacturers often overlook this synergistic relationship. They isolate the compounds that are beneficial, failing to consider how different minerals work together.

At Quality of Life, however, we believe that Mother Nature knows what she’s doing!
To ensure maintaining healthy levels of both of these essential trace minerals, Satisfide® includes them together.

There can be a risk of taking too much zinc as well. Some companies load up on zinc concentrations, believe the old adage that “more is better.” Again, our philosophy is to defer to nature. Satisfide® provides a high-quality source of zinc in a concentration that is realistic for optimal function.
