L-OptiZinc® is a unique mineral chelate that pairs zinc with the amino acid L-methionine. Research studies show that L-OptiZinc® is better absorbed than other forms of zinc and that plasma levels remain higher compared to other zinc forms. Zinc is an essential mineral involved in many cellular functions including muscle function, aging, skin and immune health.
L-OptiZinc® is zinc mono-L-methionine with superior absorption, retention and antioxidant and cell protectant properties compared to other forms of zinc tested. L-OptiZinc® is 1:1 complex of zinc and methionine, an amino acid that is well-absorbed by the body. L-OptiZinc® offers benefits for dietary supplements and food and beverages.
Zinc Methionine is Better Absorbed and Retained Longer in Tissue Than Other Popular Zinc Supplements Tested
L-OptiZinc®'s superior absorption and retention over other forms of zinc may help increase its health-promoting benefits, as these benefits are highly dependent on the amount of zinc that actually is absorbed and utilized by the body.
Preclinical research shows that L-OptiZinc® has superior antioxidant properties to several other forms of zinc.
