Research shows that zinc deficiency is widespread, especially in the elderly. Supplementing with zinc is an effective way to support aging immune systems. Since absorption can sometimes be problematic, Life Extension developed a low-cost formulation that combines the highly bioavailable OptiZinc with zinc citrate to provide a potent 50 milligram dose of zinc in each capsule.
Zinc (as OptiZinc zinc monomethionine, zinc citrate). Other ingredients: microcrystalline cellulose, vegetable cellulose (capsule), vegetable stearate, silica.
Take one (1) capsule daily, or as recommended by ae healthcare practitioner.
Supplemental zinc can inhibit the absorption and availability of copper. If more than 50mg of supplemental zinc is to be taken daily for more than four weeks, 2mg of supplemental copper should also be taken to prevent copper deficiency. Keep out of reach of children. Do not exceed recommended dose. Do not purchase if outer seal is broken or damaged. When using nutritional supplements, please consult with your physician if you are undergoing treatment for a medical condition or if you pregnant or lactating.
