- Why is zinc important?
Zinc is a trace mineral that plays many important roles in health: it supports skin health and wound-healing; it is essential for carbohydrate metabolism; it’s necessary for over 100 different enzyme systems, for proper vision, growth, skeletal integrity, tissue repair, sexual maturity; and it is an important antioxidant.
- What makes this zinc different from others?
OptiZinc® is zinc monomethionine —a patented combination of zinc and the essential amino acid methionine. Research shows this formulation makes zinc more absorbable than other zinc compounds and therefore more readily available for the body’s needs.
- What foods contain zinc?
The few sources include seafoods (such as oysters, herring, and clams), whole oatmeal, wheat germ, wheat bran, and milk.*
