The only way to know whether zinc is good or bad is to have a genetic DNA test for macular degeneration . This is a simple in office DNA test to determine what particular type of genes an AMD patient has and will allow eye care providers to customize their nutritional regiment to each patient. Genotype-directed nutritional therapy could result in significantly improved future outcomes for many patients with macular degeneration. DNA testing should become the gold standard now to help the eye care provider determine which supplement to take. Experts agree that no more than 40mg of zinc should be taken daily.
Retaine OM3 contains 800mg EPA and 400mg DHA per serving, while Retaine Flax contains flax seed oil––making it ideal for patients who cannot tolerate fish oil-based supplements.
Unlike patients who use traditional injections alone, those supplementing with ZYTAZE® noticed desired results three to five days sooner and some in as little as one day! By supplementing with ZYTAZE®'s unique blend of zinc citrate and the organic enzyme phytase prior to botulinum toxin injections, you can achieve more consistent results from treatment to treatment.
While botulinum toxin is widely known and used, many are still unaware that it requires zinc to be effective. Zinc consumption through diet alone is inefficient because most foods rich in zinc also contain phytates, a group of phosphate-containing compounds that inhibit zinc absorption. ZYTAZE®combines organic zinc along with phytase (an enzyme that effectively breaks down phytates) to aid zinc absorption, thereby enhancing the effectiveness of botulinum toxin injections.
Available in convenient blister card packaging containing 10 capsules (five-day supply). The recommended dosage is two capsules each day for four days prior to and on the day of receiving botulinum toxin injections.
