Enhanced Zinc Lozenges provides a special "ionic formula" that delivers on the original promise of seasonal immune support.**

Immune Support for Seasonal Changes

Scientific evidence is accumulating that zinc acetate is the preferred zinc compound to provide enhanced seasonal immune support. Zinc acetate releases 100% of its zinc as ionic zinc—positively charged zinc ions. Zinc acetate lozenges have been shown to strongly support immune function.**

Life Extension Enhanced Zinc Lozenges provide zinc acetate with no other ingredients that could reduce the delivery of these immune-supportive, positively charged zinc ions. Enhanced Zinc Lozenges come in a naturally flavored peppermint lozenge.**

Life Extension Foundation has one mission, and one mission only: to help you live a healthier, longer life.

In fact, we're at the forefront of medical research, constantly looking for ways to prolong youth, health, and life. And we've been at it for more than 34 years, investing more than $140 million to find therapies and technologies that could lead to lifesaving cures for the diseases of aging.

Did you know that we were the first to recommend low-dose aspirin therapy to protect against heart attack … CoQ10 for heart health … and the Omega-3s in fish oil to promote heart health?

What is the Life Extension Foundation?

The Life Extension Foundation is one of the largest organizations dedicated to investigating every method of extending the healthy human life span. When seeking anti-aging therapies, health and nutrition, The Foundation has reported discoveries in the areas of atherosclerosis and stroke prevention, diabetes, prostate health, hormone replacement therapy, and other health concerns. The Life Extension Foundation is a nonprofit, tax-exempt organization whose goal is to conquer the aging process within the next decade.

How old is the Life Extension Foundation?

The Life Extension Foundation was officially incorporated in 1980, but its founder has been involved in anti-aging research since the 1960s.

What scientific breakthroughs has the Life Extension Foundation made?

Research supported by The Life Extension Foundation has documented the value of antioxidants in extending life span and in protecting cells against ischemia (lack of blood flow). Ischemia is the leading cause of disability and death. Ischemia can be caused by the blockage of a coronary artery, which can lead to a heart attack, or a cerebral artery, which can lead to a stroke. Accident victims often die from ischemia. The Foundation supports a full time research facility that has broken all world records in protecting against ischemia-induced free radical damage.

What is the Foundation's track record in recommending Life Extension Therapies?

The Life Extension Foundation was the first organization to defy the FDA by promoting the use of antioxidant vitamins to maintain health. The Foundation was the first organization to promote the use of low dose aspirin to maintain cardiovascular health. The Foundation was the first organization to recommend against the use of iron in dietary supplements because of evidence that iron causes massive free radical damage contributing to the development of cancer, atherosclerosis and a host of other diseases. The Foundation was the first organization to inform Americans about the "miracle nutrient" coenzyme Q10, about the anti-cancer carotenoids lycopene, lutein, and xanthophyl, and about the most effective anti-aging therapy in the world, Melatonin. And the Foundation was the first organization to introduce Americans to European "smart drugs" like piracetam, centrophenoxine, and DHEA.
