30 vegetarian lozenges
Item Catalog Number: 01961
Zinc stimulates the activity of about 300 enzymes and fortifies the immune system. So it’s wise to take the best zinc lozenge during the cold season — and throughout the year — to maintain the body’s natural defenses.
Benefits at a Glance
- Zinc provides widespread support of the immune system
- Contains special “ionic formula” zinc
- Positively charged zinc ions support healthy immune function
Enhanced Zinc Lozenges is a special “ionic formula” that delivers on the original promise of seasonal immune support.
Scientific evidence is accumulating that zinc acetate is the preferred zinc compound to provide enhanced seasonal immune support.
Life Extension® Enhanced Zinc Lozenges provide zinc acetate with no other ingredients that could reduce the delivery of these immune-supportive, positively charged zinc ions. Enhanced Zinc Lozenges come in a naturally flavored peppermint lozenge.
The suggested serving size of one vegetarian lozenge of Life Extension Enhanced Zinc Lozenges provides 18.75 mg of zinc acetate. These special lozenges are not meant for daily use. Only a few of these lozenges are usually required when extra support is needed for seasonal changes. It’s good to keep a bottle close by at home or work for immediate access.

Supplemental zinc can inhibit the absorption and availability of copper. If more than 50 mg of supplemental zinc is taken daily on a chronic basis, 2 mg of supplemental copper should also be taken to prevent copper deficiency. Chronic ingestion of more than 100 mg of zinc daily may be immunosuppressive for some aspects of T-cell and NK cell function.
