Customer Ratings & Reviews

Rated 4.9 out of 5 by 16 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Best Zinc I've tried many zinc products and they all disagreed with me. Caused runny sinuses. This made me feel better and my night vision is great. I see clearly at night while driving instead of signs and lights having halos and vision is sharper. I also like that it has copper. Takes the worry out of taking zinc. November 3, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great product! Zinc and copper together is good for your thyroid. Really great balance. I love this product! December 30, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent Purchase Amazing price from Swanson for item from trustworthy brand, Jarrow. It seems to boost my immune system. November 21, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Good supplement Zinc and copper should always be supplemented together, and in the proper ratio. This supplement from Jarrow is perfectly balanced. August 31, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Reliable product This seems to be working for us. June 19, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Satisfied 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. June 6, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by immune support This formula helps in times of stress on the immune system. February 28, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by 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. February 14, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Works great Works great for a super sensitive person. February 5, 2013
Rated 4 out of 5 by 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. June 8, 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent! 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. May 30, 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by 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 March 27, 2012
Rated 4 out of 5 by very good one very good and convenient supliment September 6, 2010
Rated 5 out of 5 by Caution 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. December 3, 2009
Rated 5 out of 5 by Love it 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.
