Life Extension Zinc 50 mg 90 vcaps
This zinc supplement is designed to provide optimum absorption into the body, so you get maximum immune health support. Support for the body's natural immune defenses
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, we’ve 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.
OptiZinc® contains one of the most absorbable forms of zinc, zinc methionate, which is prized for its superior bioavailability.
