Zinc stimulates the activity of about 300 enzymes and fortifies the immune system. So it’s wise to take a zinc lozenge during the cold season — and throughout the year — to maintain the body’s natural defenses.

Benefits at a Glance

  • Zinc provides widespread support of the immune system
  • Contains special “ionic formula” zinc
  • Positively charged zinc ions support healthy immune function

Enhanced Zinc Lozenges is a special “ionic formula” that delivers on the original promise of seasonal immune support.

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.1-3

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 peppermint flavored lozenge.

The suggested serving size of one vegetarian lozenge of Life Extension Enhanced Zinc Lozenges provides 18.75 mg of zinc acetate. These special lozenges are not meant for daily use. Only a few of these lozenges are usually required when extra support is needed for seasonal changes. It’s good to keep a bottle close by at home or work for immediate access.
