This review is aimed at illustrating the importance of zinc in the formation of breast milk in the mammae gland and the importance of zinc consumption throughout the individual’s lifetime. This study was conducted as a literature review concerning the importance of zinc’s role. The role of zinc in the mammae gland is multifaceted in nature, due to the mammae gland being a dynamic network which experiences morphological and functional changes dramatically. It requires favourable coordination in order to provide sufficient zinc during the lactation period.
