According to the manufacturer:

"Zinc monomethionine. Zinc functions in many important ways: in protein synthesis, insulin activity, wound healing, bone structure, operation of the immune system - even the sense of taste. OptiZinc 30 combines 30 mg of elemental zinc with the essential amino acid methionine. Studies show OptiZinc 30 is better absorbed and utilized, and has enhanced antioxidant action compared with many other forms of zinc.Scored tablet."

The manufacturer does not allow us to discount this product.


Zinc intake of over 300 mg per day may impair immune function in young people. A dose of 440 mg per day for 30 days improved immune function in elderly people. Still, do not use high dose Zinc for more than a week or two. Long term use of Zinc at more than 100 mg per day can cause impaired immunity, heart problems, and anemia. Zinc inhibits copper absorption. Copper intake should be increased if tablets are taken for more than a few days. Zinc also competes for absorption with Iron, Calcium and Magnesium.

Taking high dose zinc for extended periods can cause a mineral imbalance.

N-Acetyl-Cysteine (NAC) chelates Zinc and removes it from the body. Long term users of NAC should supplement Zinc.

Zinc can cause stomach upset in some people.

The drug Amiloride prevents Zinc excretion from the body. Consult your physician if taking this drug.

Zinc can interfere with the absorption of penicillamine and antibiotics such as tetracycline, or fluoroquinolone (e.g. ciprofloxacin.)
