New look. During the transition period, products may arrive in either brand packaging.

 

Zinc is required for the activity of about 300 enzymes and keeps the immune system strong. For optimal maintenance of the body´s natural defense system during the cold season – and throughout the year – it is important to take the best zinc lozenge.

 

Enhanced Zinc Lozenges provides a special "ionic formula" that is able to deliver on the original promise of seasonal immune support.

 

Immune Support for Seasonal Changes

 

According to accumulating scientific evidence zinc acetate is the preferred form of zinc to provide enhanced seasonal immune support. This zinc compound releases 100% of its zinc as positively charged zinc ions – or ionic zinc. Research has shown that Zinc acetate lozenges strongly support immune function.

 

Life Extension® Enhanced Zinc Lozenges provide zinc acetate in naturally flavored peppermint lozenges. Enhanced Zinc Lozenges contain no other ingredients that could hinder the delivery of these immune-supportive, positively charged zinc ions.
