Zinc stimulates the activity of about 300 enzymes and fortifies the immune system. Taking the best zinc lozenge is important for maintaining the body's natural defense system during the cold season—and throughout the year.
Enhanced Zinc Lozenges provides a special "ionic formula" that delivers on the original promise of seasonal immune support.
Immune Support for Seasonal Changes
Scientific evidence is accumulating that zinc acetate is the preferred zinc compound to provide enhanced seasonal immune support. Zinc acetate releases 100% of its zinc as ionic zinc—positively charged zinc ions. Zinc acetate lozenges have been shown to strongly support immune function.
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.
Serving Size 1 vegetarian lozenge
Zinc (as zinc acetate)

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 immunosuppresive for some aspects of T-cell and NK cell function.
