iHerb Customer Reviews
L-OptiZinc ► The Only High Potency Zinc Supplement FDA Approved Safe For Human Nutrition
L-OptiZinc is the only high-potency zinc supplement FDA approved safe for human nutrition. L-OptiZinc is also an approved form of zinc for use in the EU in food supplements. In general, zinc is an essential mineral involved in regulating a large amount of enzymes in the body. It is known as an antioxidant and immune boosting supplement, and is most commonly supplemented to reduce the frequency of sickness and to support optimal testosterone levels. Zinc is highly involved in many enzyme systems in the body. Keeping normal zinc levels helps with the maintenance of these enzyme systems and acts as a hormonal and immune system aid. High dose zinc in response to the common cold (not taken preventatively, but only at the onset of sickness) appears to be effective in reducing the duration and severity of sickness. Zinc is also known to be circulating at lower levels in persons with acne relative to those without, and it is thought to be therapeutic by reducing the migration of immune cells to the skin and possibly reducing the effects of androgens on the skin. A number of trials using zinc for acne control note that standard to high supplemental dosages have a modest protective effect. L-OptiZinc is a forms of methionine-bound zinc that increase the bioavailability of zinc. Methionine is the amino acid best absorbed by the body. L-OptiZinc is standardized to 20% zinc, consists of zinc bound to the more bioavailable "L" form of methionine. Some preclinical studies show that L-OptiZinc is absorbed better, retained longer and are more effective than other zinc supplements tested. Taking everything into account, I highly recommend this high quality product manufactured by Now Foods with reasonable price offered by iHerb. A single dose per day is what you need. I hope you'll find my review helpful to you.

great for acne and rosacea

Posted by Reviewer1237289 on Dec 17, 2016

I started taking this for my adult acne/rosacea. I noticed a difference within about 3 days and it seems to have dramatically reduced the number of pimples, balckheads, and whiteheadds I get as well as the redness of my face. I've switched to Thorne's zinc picolinate now on the advice of a doctor specializing in nutrional medecine since he claims that that form is much better absorbed and Thorne is a very reliable brand.

its a good zinc supplement

Posted by arpeey on Dec 15, 2016

I think zinc for its immune boosting effect though one should not take them without cycling and for Zinc I have been taken L-optizinc from NOW for about a year now(cycled)and it does help a lot I can definitely feel it.

I've been using this product for about 2-3 months now. I work around a lot of small children and I feel this has helped me avoid getting colds.
