Department of Food and Nutrition, Morioka Daigaku Junior College, Iwate, Japan.

The purpose of this study is to examine whether Zinc supplementation improves
mood states in young women.

METHODS: The study used a double-blind, randomized and placebo-controlled procedure. The
major outcomes were psychological measures, somatic symptoms and serum Zinc. Thirty
women were placed randomly and in equal numbers into two groups, and they ingested one
capsule containing multivitamins (MVs) or MV and 7 mg Zinc (Zn) daily for 10 weeks.
RESULTS: Women who took MV and Zn showed a significant reduction in anger-hostility score
(P=0.009) and depression-dejection score (P=0.011) in the Profile of Moods State (POMS) and
a significant increase in serum Zn concentration (P=0.008), whereas women who took only MV
did not.
CONCLUSION: Our results suggest that Zinc supplementation may be effective in reducing
anger and depression
