  • Immune dysfunctions16
  • Age-Related Macular Degeneration (AMD)17
  • Bone density in those with thalassemia (a blood disorder)18
  • Type II diabetes19
  • The common cold20
  • Osteoporosis21
  • ADHD21
  • Acne21

OptiZinc is a proprietary, highly bioavailable form of zinc. Studies have shown that zinc methionate (the ingredient in OptiZinc) has a higher absorption rate than ordinary zinc.13,14
