Zinc acetate found in Enhanced Zinc Lozenges can contribute to defending against seasonal immune challenges. Zinc acetate releases positively charged zinc ions which support your immune system. Meant for occasional short term use when seasonal changes expose the immune system.
Why it Works: Most people have probably tried avoiding a cold during the winter season. If such a cold arises, it is always easier to inhibit such an issue when the first signs are showing. However, this is best done with an immune system that functions optimally, so it may deal with invaders accordingly. Zinc stimulates around 300 enzymes in the body and simultaneously fortifies the immune system, and zinc acetate lozenges have been shown to support the immune function [1-3]. Life ExtensionÂ® Enhanced Zinc Lozenges provide zinc acetate with no other ingredients that could reduce the delivery of immune-supporting, positively charged zinc ions. On top of that, Enhanced Zinc Lozenges taste good because they come in a naturally flavored peppermint lozenge.
The Science Behind the Product: Zinc has many positive impacts on the human health, ranging from contributing to effective immune defenses to promoting optimal growth and development of the human body . Zinc is one of the most common elements in the body and is essential to the functioning of over 300 processes involving enzymes and hormones . Furthermore, zinc is also an essential component of one of the bodyâs most important natural antioxidants, the enzyme known as copper/zinc superoxide dismutase (Cu/Zn SOD) [6,7]. Cu/Zn SOD is a member of a specific family of antioxidant enzymes which inhibits dangerous superoxide radicals, which can damage lipids, proteins, and DNA [8,9]., Cu/Zn SOD breaks down these radicals and convert them into hydrogen peroxide, which is in turn converted to water and oxygen . Zinc also plays a crucial role in supporting the immune function [11-15] Zinc helps maintain a type of white blood cells called T-lymphocytes which job it is to fight infections. It is estimated that more than 200 distinct viruses target the respiratory tract, which can cause common complaints. . Zinc interferes with the virusesâ ability to gain a foothold in the respiratory tract, which, according to several clinical trials with hundreds of patients, may in turn prevent seasonal problems. .
How to Use: Completely dissolve in mouth one (1) lozenge every 2 wakeful hours, not to exceed 8 lozenges per day, or as recommended by a healthcare practitioner. Do not use for more than 3 consecutive days. Do not chew or swallow lozenge. May cause nausea if taken on empty stomach.
