The Benefits of L-OptiZinc® for Women

Zinc is one of the three most important minerals needed by the human body. It plays a central role in a number of cellular functions affecting eyesight, hair, skin, cognitive function, and even the senses of taste and smell. A deficiency, therefore, is potentially critical. Without it, the immune system especially becomes weakened. Zinc has been studied to reduce the prevalence and length of colds among other symptoms.

In addition to the general importance of Zinc in the human body, it has several benefits for women in particular. For instance, if zinc is removed from the diet of one of your female clients, her appetite will decrease. This decrease can lead to big meal binging and purging (bulimia) or not eating (anorexia). These are serious health concerns for athletes and stay-at-home moms alike. Make sure you are encouraging a Zinc supplement like L-OptiZinc® to keep clients on track with regular balanced meals.

Do you have clients who are pregnant or new mothers? Zinc helps regulate hormonal shifts, as well as taking the edge off of PMS symptoms. Also, lacking zinc can double the risk of a low birth weight. Women should maintain zinc levels all the way through the birth and afterward. Lactating women transfer zinc to their baby through breast milk. Once again, a lack of it can limit proper infant growth.

You might suggest L-OptiZinc® to vegetarians as well. Meats are a common source of zinc that vegetarians don’t receive. The supplement should be taken alongside a planned diet that includes other zinc-rich foods like yogurt and almonds.

If you have clients that could utilize zinc for any of the reasons stated above, consider L-OptiZinc®. L-OptiZinc® pairs zinc with an amino acid so that it is more easily absorbed.
