Now Foods, L-OptiZinc
Now Foods, L-OptiZinc
I knew I had a zinc deficiency from the white spots on my fingernails. I have been using a standard amino acid chelated zinc which I purchased locally in Australia. I thought I was taking care of my deficiency but my symptoms did not improve. I then decided to try this form of zinc & now my symptoms are improving quickly. The greasy skin was gone on day two!, my skin became softer, I no longer felt cold, digestion is better, I no longer feel as hungry, sleep quality is much better, I feel more relaxed, I have more stamina & the white spots have disappeared from my nails. I believe zinc levels in the soil are extremely low (particularly in Australia) as I have always eaten a very healthy diet. I will now be taking this zinc for the rest of my life to prevent deficiency. This is the only 'L-OptiZinc' that I could find, which is better absorbed than the ordinary 'OptiZinc'. Kudos to Now Foods for using top notch ingredients & to iHerb for stocking it! Highly recommended!
Zinc: a boost I can feel

I can actually feel more energy on the days when I take Now Foods, L-OptiZinc. (I don't take it everyday because I'm trying to better balance my copper:zinc ratio by taking copper everyday.) I get it from iherb.com; the best prices, outstanding service.

I don't know if as good as picolinate. I used ZincPicolinate just before, but switched to OptiZinc because is supposed to be as bioavailable, and picolinate really has a plastic smell and taste. But it seems like it is not working as wel. With picolinate no colds, now I have one. With picolinate , "my manhood" got a push in the back, wit optizinc feel no difference.
Think it works :)

great for acne and rosacea

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.

A useful zinc supplement, my favourite so far. Libido is through the roof.
