    Zinc for immune, visual, skin & mens health


    Opti L-Zinc ® + copper

    Zinc is an essential trace mineral, stored primarily in muscle. Zinc is also found in high concentrations in red and white blood cells, the retina of the eye, bones, skin, kidneys, liver, and pancreas. In men, the prostate gland stores high amounts of zinc.
    Zinc Deficiencies: There is a shortage of zinc in many people's diet, since zinc is destroyed in the milling process and is also lost in cooking.

    Food Sources of Zinc: muscle meat, poultry, fish and seafood, as well as grains, nuts, eggs, and brewer's yeast are goods sources of zinc

    Zinc & Eye Health: Two zinc-dependent enzymes are required for vision; AMD patients taking 80 mg/d of zinc for two years had much less vision loss than controls. Zinc aids in the prevention of cataract formation and optic neuritis (inflamed optic nerve). In addition, it activates vitamin A to improve night vision

    Zinc & Gastro-Intestinal Health: Zinc sulfate (220 mg three times per day) decreased pain and reduced the size of gastric ulcers much faster than placebo controls Patients with inflammatory bowel disease improve rapidly with zinc supplementation ranging from 210 mg/d to 750 mg/d of zinc sulfate.

    Zinc & Immune Health: Zinc plays an important role in the immune system, which may explain why it is helpful in protecting against infections. Zinc supplementation protects against colds and upper respiratory infections (such as bronchitis). Several important studies have revealed that zinc lozenges may reduce the intensity of the symptoms associated with a cold, particularly cough, and the length of time that a cold lingers.

    Zinc & Mens Health: Zinc is an essential trace mineral for men's health and used in the growth and maintenance of muscles.

  • Benign Prostate Hyperplasia (BPH): Zinc reduces the conversion of testosterone to dihydrotestosterone (DHT) thereby decreasing hyperplastic growth in the prostate gland.
  • Zinc enhances male potency and sex drive
  • Zinc promotes male fertility, by increasing sperm count and improve sperm motility, particularly in smokers. Reasearch shows that men lose approximately 5mg of zinc per ejaculation:

    Zinc & Skin Health : Zinc helps to control the oil glands, and is also required for the synthesis of protein and collagen - which is necessary for wound healing and a healthy skin.

    Numerous studies report low zinc levels in individuals with acne, and oral zinc supplementation helps reduce the severity and frequency of outbreaks. Individuals with eczema and psoriasis are frequently found to have low zinc levels. Zinc supplementation also speeds wound healing and topical applications speeds the healing of open wounds.

    Zinc & Opti-L-Zinc®: Opti-L-Zinc® is a patented form of zinc complexed with the amino acid Methionine. Research has demonstrated this product to be better absorbed and retained longer compared to several other forms of zinc tested. As Zinc reduces the body’s ability to utilize the essential mineral, copper, 300 mcg of copper has been added.
