The benefits of zinc
Zinc is an essential mineral that has more than 100 functions in the body. It is necessary for, among other things:
- normal cognitive function.
- cell division and growth
- normal skin, nails and hair
- normal bones
- normal fertility
Finally, zinc contributes to the normal functioning of the immune system and acts as an antioxidant.
Why take Life Extension Enhanced Zinc Lozenges?
Enhanced Zinc Lozenges are designed to harness these latter two benefits of zinc. The lozenges provide a high dose of zinc acetate. This form dissolves into ionic zinc with a positive charge and provides excellent support to defences. Furthermore, the lozenges are completely plant-based and have a peppermint flavour.
You can support your immune system by taking a high dose of zinc if you feel sickness coming on. You should not take such high doses for more than a few days, otherwise you may be at risk of copper deficiency.
All the benefits of Life Extension Enhanced Zinc Lozenges
- Zinc lozenges for quick absorption

Ingredients & Usage
Dissolve one lozenge in your mouth every 2 hours while awake. Do not take more than 8 lozenges per day.
Do not use for more than three consecutive days.
Do not chew or swallow the lozenge.
Can cause nausea when taken on an empty stomach.
Zinc supplements may reduce the absorption and availability of copper. If you take more than 50 mg of zinc daily as a supplement for a longer period of time, take 2 mg of copper per day to avoid copper deficiency. Prolonged intake of more than 100 mg of zinc per day may reduce some of the functions of T cells and NK cells, thereby suppressing your defences.
One pack of Life Extension Enhanced Zinc Lozenges contains 30 lozenges.
