Zinc supports your body’s natural immune defenses.†
Zinc supplementation offers an effective way to support aging immune systems, as well as healthy inflammatory and free radical scavenging responses.
Beyond immune support, zinc plays other crucial roles. It is an essential component of superoxide dismutase, one of your body’s most powerful natural free radical preventor. Zinc stimulates the activity of about 300 enzymes that promote biochemical reactions in your body. This key mineral is also an integral component of vital hormones and supports protein and DNA synthesis, insulin production, as well as thyroid and bone metabolism. Zinc supports cardiovascular and neurological health, and helps maintain vision in the elderly.
Age-related immune decline is partly due to the decreasing size and function of the thymus gland. Evidence suggests that zinc may help maintain healthy function of the thymus gland in elderly people.
OptiZinc® is a superior bioavailable form of zinc. It is assimilated more easily than ordinary zinc because it is comprised of one of the most absorbable forms of zinc — zinc methionate (methionine).
Take one (1) capsule daily with or without food, or as recommended by a healthcare practitioner.
Serving Size: 1 vegetarian capsule
- Amount Per Serving:
- Zinc (as OptiZinc® zinc monomethionine, zinc citrate) 50 mg
Other ingredients: microcrystalline cellulose, vegetable cellulose (capsule), vegetable stearate, silica.
Supplemental zinc can inhibit the absorption and availability of copper. If more than 50 mg of supplemental zinc is taken daily on a chronic basis, 2 mg of supplemental copper should also be taken to protect against copper deficiency. Chronic ingestion of more than 100 mg of zinc daily may be immunosuppressive for some aspects of T-cell and NK cell function.
When using nutritional supplements, please consult with your physician if you are undergoing treatment for a medical condition or if you are pregnant or lactating.
