Life Extension Zinc Caps: Use high absorption zinc capsules to help support healthy immune function, healthy inflammatory and antioxidant responses whilst helping to correct zinc deficiency in the body.
Zinc supports the body's natural immune defences. Research demonstrates that zinc deficiency is widespread, especially in the elderly. A long standing problem with many zinc supplements is that zinc absorption can be limited and additionally certain chemicals in vegetables and grains further inhibit zinc absorption lending to zinc deficiency.
Zinc is involved in the activity of approximately 300 enzymes that promote biochemical reactions in the body. This key mineral is also an integral component of vital hormones, supports insulin production, as well as thyroid and bone metabolism. Zinc supports cardiovascular and nerve health, as well as maintaining vision in the elderly.
Zinc Caps contains OptiZinc, a superior bioavailable form of zinc. It is assimilated more easily than traditional forms of zinc because it contains the most absorbable form of zinc - zinc methionate. Studies indicate that taking this form of zinc results in higher blood levels compared to other forms of zinc.
