Product Overview

  • For Longer Life
  • Superior High Potency Zinc
  • A Dietary Supplement

Zinc is a mineral that stimulates the activity of approximately 300 enzymes, which are substances that promote biochemical reactions in your body. These reactions are essential for the formation of superoxide dismutase, one of the body’s most important free radical scavengers. Zinc also promotes immune function, taste sensitivity, protein and DNA synthesis, insulin production, reproductive organ development and sperm motility. Zinc also supports normal growth and development during pregnancy, childhood, and adolescence.

Maintaining adequate levels of zinc is equally important to aging adults. As people grow older, their immune function declines, partly due to the decreasing size and function of the thymus gland. Evidence suggests that zinc may help to maintain healthy function of the thymus gland in elderly people. Scientists have also found evidence that a zinc deficiency in elderly adults may contribute to impaired immune function with aging, or immunosenescence. These findings suggest that zinc plays a critical role in supporting healthy immune function with age.

Suggested Use

Read the entire label and follow the directions carefully prior to use.

Take one (1) capsule, one to three times daily with or without food, or as recommended by a healthcare practitioner. The number of capsules you take will depend on the amount of zinc in other products you are taking. Most people's intake of zinc should not exceed 90 mg a day.

Other Ingredients

Rice flour, vegetable cellulose (capsule), silica, vegetable stearate.


Store tightly closed in a cool, dry place.

Caution: Supplemental zinc can inhibit the absorption and availability of copper. If more than 50 mg of supplemental zinc is taken daily, 2 mg of supplemental copper should also be taken to prevent deficiency. Chronic ingestion of more than 100 mg of zinc daily may be toxic.

Best zinc supplement I have taken

Posted by morganwellinger on Nov 15, 2011

This zinc seems to be the most absorbable out of all the ones I have ever taken. I think because its OPTI zinc. I take it for skin health mainly, as I am prone to acne, but also for my immune system. I usually never get sick, but this really seemed to protect me from any colds going around, especially being a college student where there are loads of sick kids around campus during this time of year. I would highly recommend this to ANYONE who takes zinc, or would like to take zinc. This seems to be most absorbable and beneficial to the body. I take either one or two capsules a day, depending on how I am feeling. This is a trustworthy brand, and you won't be disappointed!

Capsule Larger than it needs to be.

Posted by Reviewer1485718 on Sep 14, 2007

The product is good, but the capsule is large enough for a 250 mg size. Obviously, there is too much filler packed in there. They should put this in a much smaller capsule, which would be appropriate for a 30 mg zinc capsule, and more convenient to swallow, especially for people who swallow many capsules.

my psoriasis doesn't itch any longer!

Posted by Reviewer2262549 on Mar 25, 2008

I heard that this works for psoriasis but I didn't know that it would work this well or this fast. An excellent product.
