(NOTE: Laird Wellness is not affiliated with Life Extension, but we DO think this video does a great job of explaining Zinc Caps. Please see the disclaimer at the bottom of this page.)
Zinc supports your body’s natural immune response. But zinc deficiency is common, especially in older people. This can contribute to aging-related decline in immune function.
Zinc supplementation supports aging immune systems, as well as healthy inflammatory and antioxidant responses, but it goes beyond that. For instance, zinc is an essential component of superoxide dismutase, one of your body’s most powerful natural antioxidants. It also supports cardiovascular and neurological health, and helps maintain vision in the elderly.
This low-cost formulation combines the highly bioavailable OptiZinc® with zinc citrate to provide a potent 50-milligram dose of zinc in each capsule.
OptiZinc® contains one of the most absorbable forms of zinc, zinc methionate, which is prized for its superior bioavailability.

CAUTION: Supplemental zinc can inhibit the absorption and availability of copper. If more than 50 mg of supplemental zinc is to be taken daily for more than four weeks, 2 mg of supplemental copper should also be taken to reduce the risk of copper deficiency.
