The first zinc supplement I tried cause a fairly violent reaction-- threw up my breakfast!-- but this one has proven to be very mild and I have no reason to discontinue taking it.

proper balance of zinc and copper
I use this every day, it had the appropriate balance of zinc and copper, which can be a problem with plain zinc supplements.

An Extra Boost to My Multi
Because I'm using just three per day of my multi rather than the maximum six, this is being used to close the shortfall, at least for now. However, it is likely my last bottle, but only because I've discovered my Calcium Supplement also contains some zinc.

This is the perfect ratio of zinc to copper at a sensible daily dosage of 15mg especially when combined with a multi vitamin that already has zinc.

important as we get older
i chose this version since it is in a lower dose of 15mg as opposed to 30mg. optizinc claims that it has better uptake and retention than other forms of zinc

This form of highly available zinc has been known to gently increase testosterone levels. This is great news for men, and reason for women to find a different form if they begin to experience acne and facial hair growth.

Balancing zinc with copper is a very good idea. I also like how OptiZinc is supposed to have better absorption -- it says it resists interference from fiber and phytic acid, which can be a problem when you're supplementing with zinc.
Great product, great price, great convenience -- I'm glad I bought this.
I also should say that I always take zinc along with a selenium supplement, and occasionally also with vitamin E and CoQ10 (I'm not sure how accurate this is synergistically, but as far as I know, zinc and selenium work together, selenium works with vitamin E, and vitamin E works with CoQ10).
Anyway, I use Selenoexcell along with this product, and am very happy with that. Always be careful not to overdo it with minerals/fat soluble vitamins, but use common sense and you should be fine.
