Vitacost Synergy L-OptiZinc® Description

Premium form of zinc. Supports a healthy immune system.* Also provides antioxidant protection.*


What is L-OptiZinc?


L-OptiZinc is a unique, patented from of zinc. It consists of the mineral zinc bound to the natural and more bioavailable “L” form of the amino acid methionine (L-methionine).

Zinc is necessary for proper reproduction, growth and development. It’s required for the function of approximately 300 enzymes in the body, and it plays a part in numerous body processes including proper immune function, eye health and regulation of appetite, taste and smell.*

Zinc is also an antioxidant, meaning it helps protect healthy cells from the potentially damaging effects of free radicals. Free radicals are unstable molecules that attack healthy cells, damaging their structure and DNA. They’re believed to contribute to the aging process. Free radicals are generated in the body as a result of natural body processes (such as breathing and digestion), but also from exposure to environmental toxins (including ultraviolet light, radiation, smoking and air pollution). Antioxidants, such as zinc, neutralize free radicals, helping to protect healthy cells.*
 
What are the key benefits of Synergy L-OptiZinc®?

  • Zinc is necessary for the formation of superoxide dismutase (SOD), which is an important free radical scavenger in the body.*
  • Supports healthy protein and DNA synthesis.*
  • Zinc deficiency in the elderly can often accompany age-related immune decline.*
  • Supports prostate tissue health, sperm motility and testosterone metabolism.*
  • Zinc is also involved in healthy insulin production.*

5 Must-Have Winter Supplements

Some of us are lucky to live in a climate where winter means the occasional wind breaker or hoodie at night. For the majority, however, that’s not reality. Winter can be harsh, and it’s important to take some preventative measures to maintain optimal health while we anxiously await spring’s arrival. It’s essential to eat healthy, bundle up and get plenty of rest during these ice-cold months. In addition, supplementing can be an excellent way to ensure you make it through this season unscathed.

Here are five excellent supplements to keep you at your best this winter!

Vitamin D3

Vitamin D is an essential supplement for the winter season. It’s primarily obtained via direct exposure to sunlight. However, this can become difficult during the cold, dark winter. That’s where vitamin D supplements come into play. This nutrient helps to contribute to bone strength, aids in the absorption of calcium and helps promote a positive mood. There’s often confusion regarding the “3” in vitamin D3. This simply indicates that the vitamin D is from a natural source, as opposed to the synthetic counterpart you may know as vitamin D2.*

Elderberry

Elderberry (Sambucus nigra), commonly referred to as sambucus, is a berry that’s typically found in the warmer parts of North America and Europe. It is rumored that Hippocrates, the Greek “father of medicine,” referred to the elderberry as his “medicine chest” due to its many functions. As a matter of fact, according to the United States Department of Agriculture, the antioxidant capacity of black elderberries is superior to strawberries, cranberries and blueberries. A few teaspoons of black elderberry may help to keep you at your best until spring finally shines.*

Vitamin C

Winter will be much more bearable with help from our friend, vitamin C. Vitamin C is a powerful antioxidant, which protects against free radical damage, chemicals and pollutants that may harm our body’s cells. Vitamin C is easy to obtain through diet. Citrus fruits, berries, kiwi, pineapple and strawberries are a few of the best sources of vitamin C. If these nutrient-rich foods aren’t part of your diet, you can supplement vitamin C in a variety of forms – from tasty chewables to convenient capsules.*

Vitamin E Oil

If you suffer from dry, flaky skin in cooler weather, vitamin E oil might be an excellent addition to your personal care routine. Though not your typical supplement, this oil provides a powerful dose of vitamin E that you apply topically – just as you would a body lotion. It’s often mixed with other oils (almond, apricot, avocado, sunflower, etc), which all have a plethora of benefits to promote healthy skin. On top of being an excellent moisturizer, vitamin E oil is an antioxidant, protecting our skin from free radical damage.

Zinc

Zinc is an often overlooked mineral with a host of important benefits. Zinc supports proper immune function, eye health and the regulation of appetite, taste and smell. Zinc is also responsible for the production of superoxide dismutase (SOD), which plays an important role in protecting our bodies from free radical damage. Men may especially benefit from this mineral, as zinc helps to support healthy prostate tissue, sperm mobility and testosterone production.*

While we wish for warmer weather, we hope some (or all!) of these supplements can help get you through the winter. You might even find that you feel better than you did going into it!
