Source Naturals - OptiZinc 30 mg. - 240 Tablets
Source Naturals OptiZinc is zinc monomethionine - zinc combined with the essential amino acid methionine. inc is a trace element which is essential for normal growth, development of the reproductive organs, normal functioning of the prostate gland, healing of wounds, and the manufacture of proteins and nucleic acids (the building blocks for RNA and DNA). It is also necessary for over 100 different enzyme systems in the body.
OptiZinc - The Most Potent Form of Zinc Available
Extensive scientific research shows that is the most bioavailable and bioactive form of zinc tested. Aside from demonstrating superior absorption and utilization by the body for zinc’s many functions, is also more efficient than other forms of zinc in getting needed vitamin A out of storage in the liver, thus making it available for use. Perhaps most outstanding is the synergy offered by this combination of zinc
and methionine: while both of these nutrients are well-known for their freeradical-neutralizing properties, the antioxidant activity of far
surpasses that of either zinc or methionine alone.
Zinc - Essential For Your Health
Zinc is one of the most important minerals your body uses. Among its many functions, zinc is:
- Critical for the health of the thymus gland, which is necessary for the natural defenses, as demonstrated in recent research by Nicola Fabris, Ph.D., director of the Gerontology Research Department of the Italian National Research Center on Aging in Ancona, Italy
- Important for skin health and wound-healing
- Essential for carbohydrate metabolism
- Necessary for over 100 different enzyme systems, which are vital for proper vision, growth, skeletal integrity, tissue repair, sexual maturity, and reproductive capacity, as well as many other important functions. These enzyme systems also include critical antioxidant systems, such as catalase and SOD. Antioxidant systems are important for neutralizing free radicals, which could otherwise damage
the body’s cells. A sign of Zinc’s importance is that just over three ounces of colostrum (the first human breast milk to be generated following childbirth) provides 70 to 900 mg of zinc!
Do You Get Enough Zinc In Your Diet?
As vital as zinc is, it can be hard to get enough of, even when following a healthy diet. Surveys show that the daily intake of zinc in the average American diet ranges from 8 to 11 mg, yet the U.S. RDA is 15 mg. The few excellent sources include seafoods (such as oysters, herring, and clams), whole oatmeal, wheat germ, wheat bran, and milk. If some of these are not a regular part of your diet, you may be one of many people who are zinc deficient, and you may want to use a dietary supplement.
Source Naturals OptiZinc - The Supplement of Choice
One Source Naturals’ tablet provides 30 mg of Zinc (from 150 mg Zinc Monomethionine), which is 200% of the U.S. RDA for zinc. 300 mcg of the essential mineral copper is also included, to offset the displacement of copper that can occur when high levels of zinc are consumed. The form of copper used is also state-of-the-art: it is Copper Sebacate, a natural compound that is Copper:SOD-mimetic, meaning that even on its own, it can act as an antioxidant. Its inclusion with Zinc Monomethionine makes Source Naturals’ a powerful antioxidant combination that is truly on the cutting edge of nutrition science.
Leaders of the Wellness Revolution
Source Naturals was created in 1982 by C.E.O Ira Goldberg to support each individual’s potential to enjoy optimal health. At that time, the kind of nutritional formulations he envisioned – for the maintenance of well-being and the enhancement of life – simply didn’t exist. The idea of combining many nutrients, herbs and nutraceuticals in one formulation, though common today, was then a rarity. Source Naturals pioneered the concept with Wellness Formula, now the industry’s #1 immune support product. Source Naturals subsequently introduced numerous award-winning formulas, recognized for their excellence in independent surveys and nutritional analyses. In addition to Wellness, these award-winners include Life Force Multiple, Mega-Kid Multiple, Inflama-Rest, the Skin Eternal line, Higher Mind, Essential Enzymes, Male Response, and more.
Source Naturals’ comprehensive Bio-Aligned Formulas help bring the power of alignment to your body. When formulating, Source Naturals evaluates the underlying causes of system imbalances, and then provides targeted nutrition to interdependent body systems. Source Naturals' line of more than 600 products also includes well-researched, single entity nutrients in their highest quality and most bioavailable forms. Source Naturals nutritional supplements are at the leading edge of today’s Wellness Revolution. This transformation in health consciousness also includes new perspectives in diet, lifestyle, emotional and spiritual development, and complementary health care. Source Naturals Strategy for Wellness is to provide education that empowers individuals to take responsibility for their health, rather than relying solely on outside medical authority. The result is people who are more productive and fulfilled, and a world that is stronger and healthier.
