Health benefits at a glance:

Zinc can support the immune system during aging and thus prevent age-related limitations of the body's immune system. Zinc is difficult to absorb, but Zinc Caps High Potency provides 50 milligrams of zinc in just one capsule to increase the availability of zinc in the human body.


This is why it works:

Zinc supports the body's natural immune defenses, but research has shown that zinc deficiency is widespread, especially among the elderly. At the same time, zinc is important for the production of vital hormones and promotes protein and DNA synthesis, insulin production and the metabolism of the thyroid and bones. Zinc deficiency can lead to age-related impairments of the immune system, which is also known as immunosenescence. In addition, such a deficiency can have negative effects on all of the above-mentioned body processes.

In addition, zinc is part of a body's own antioxidant that can help protect your body from free radicals that damage cells.

Scientists have found that taking zinc supplements can support the immune system during the aging process and promote a normal inflammatory and antioxidant response. This is especially important for the elderly, whose immune systems can suffer from age-related changes.

Although research shows that zinc supplements offer health benefits, the body's absorption of zinc may be limited. For this reason, Life Extension® has developed a cost-effective formula that is a combination of the proven and improved bioavailability of OptiZinc® with zinc citrate and is highly effective with 50 milligrams of zinc in just one capsule.


The science behind the product:

OptiZinc® is a bioavailable form of zinc. It is more easily absorbed than regular zinc because it consists of a form of zinc called zinc methionine, which is particularly easy to absorb in the body. Scientific studies show that this increases the level of zinc in the blood than other forms of zinc.

In addition to the important role that zinc plays in the immune system, it also has other important functions. Zinc is an important component of superoxide dismutase, one of the body's most powerful natural antioxidants. In addition, zinc can stimulate the activity of around 300 enzymes that promote biochemical reactions within the body. Zinc also plays a role in protein and DNA synthesis, and is an important part of vital hormones.

It also has an important function in insulin production and the metabolism of the thyroid gland and bones. It can also improve cardiovascular and neurological health, and maintain normal vision in the elderly.
