Sapersteins Battle Mankind’s Scourge

It’s been a mild winter so far. (We’ve already forgotten about that 1-day blizzard.)

That’s good news to everyone. Except maybe Larry Saperstein.

The Westport resident — a radiologist on the faculty of the Yale School of Medicine — wanted to protect his own immune system. For years, he suffered from debilitating winter colds.

Saperstein knew the benefits of zinc and vitamin C. But he wanted more.

He learned about liposomal formulations. Ingredients are enclosed in hollow spheres (liposomes) that enter the bloodstream more easily than conventional water-soluble supplements. In addition, many more active ingredients are absorbed by the body.

Saperstein added an all-natural patented black pepper fruit extract. It’s believed to enhance absorption even further, and give an energy boost.

Saperstein has 3 school-aged kids. He works in a hospital. Since taking Zyta-C, he has not had a cold in 4 years.

zyta-cThere are plenty of nutritional supplements. Most taste icky. Saperstein and his wife Amy — a marketer — convened a group of Westport preschool moms to test different flavors. They settled on citrus.

The Sapersteins named their company High Point Laboratories, for the road they live on. From her home, Amy is spreading the word about their product.

She’s starting by giving out Zyta-C at health-conscious spots around town. Westport Tennis Club and Joyride have already signed on.

Amy wants to include “06880” readers. For a free box (a 1-week supply sells for $14), go to http://www.zyta-c.com, then enter the code “zytafree06880” at checkout.

Let’s hope the mild winter continues. But whatever the weather, let’s also hope that Larry and Amy Saperstein continue to prevent common colds.

    I tried to enter the coupon code, but it showed “coupon code not found”

    • Amy gave me the wrong code. It was actually zytafree06880, which works now. The tech person is currently adding freezyta06880, which should work by 6 p.m. She thanks you for your patience!

    Hand washing also works.

    • Sharon Paulsen

      And also, using Netti Pot saline nasal washes, and hydrogen peroxide ear “washes”. (Yup, it’s not commonly known, but it’s akin to using ear was removal stuff, and helps keep the whole “ear/nose/throat area clearer, to ward off infections.)

      Seemed to cut down on my colds a bit, or prevents colds from turning into longer term infections.

      I used to get hard core nasty colds a few times a year.

      Incidentally, Ester-C is more a more absorbable form of vitamin C. Wonder is this product is Ester based?

      • Nancy Hunter Wilson

        Echinacea was/is supposed to be a natural remedy (of what? everything?)
        Naturopathic and herbal medicine are both fascinating.
        Personally, anything in a pill is sickening.

        • Sharon Paulsen

          Yeah, Echinacea is supposed to be good too.

          I personally didn’t find it very effective though.

          I guess a big part of homeopathy/natural/alternative methods depends on each person’s physiology.

    I was under the impression that years of controlled scientific studies had concluded that Vitamin C was no different than a placebo in preventing colds. Zinc, on the other hand, showed some promise but theory was that it bound to the rhinovirus in the nose/throat rather than acting through absorption. Perhaps I misread.

    Code or no code, not enthused at all by this. I agree with Nancy, Jerry and Chris.

    Dear Dan, I am afraid this posting is a bit mis-guided. Though you might feel you are supporting a local entrepreneurial enterprise, you are actually promoting something that may be little more than quackery. A radiologist is not in a position to determine if a combination of unregulated minerals and vitamins are healthful, let alone effective in fighting off mankind’s scourge. How do we know this is nothing more than placebo effect? has a double blind trial of effectiveness and safety been conducted? What if an individual who is on other medications should not take this unregulated medicine?

    And I would also say, how do you decide whose businesses to promote? Regards, Jill Greenberg >

    • dayle brownstein

      I agree with Jill. I find this “promotion” unsettling. At first I thought we were going to get some good advice from a medical professional. I was disappointed to see it was just an ad basically. Somewhat distasteful in my opinion.

  18. Sharon Paulsen

    Might be helpful to see the full ingredients list.

    For instance:
    Are they using Ester-C (believed to have better absorption qualities)?

    Is it organic? Any additives?

    Also, links to any studies behind the science would be interesting to see.

    Incidentally, I have found that keeping zinc and magnesium levels up to par in one’s system is quite beneficial, along with D3, a vitamin that many do not get enough of.

    Overall bodily absorption of any supplement is definitely addressable, so if this product really delivers, then show us the beef!

  19. I’m with those who detect the strong whiff of quackery here. Buried at the bottom of the webpage, in hard-to-notice gray-on-black print: “This product is not intended to diagnose, treat, cure or prevent any disease. These statements have not been evaluated by the Food and Drug Administration.” Any time you see that wording, as I do too often in snake oil ads in my local paper, you can be sure it’s being peddled by someone taking advantage of the non-science exemption our Congress has given “alternative” medicine. I’m happy for Dr. Saperstein he hasn’t had a cold lately. But the plural of anecdote is not evidence.

  20. Ernest Lorimer

    A one week supply for $14? $700/year?

  21. Thank you !!!!

  22. I find snake oil is equally effective!

  23. Phyllis Kurzer

    The new code you posted zytafree06880 still does not work.

  24. Amy saperstein

    If anyone has trouble with the code, we apologize. Please contact me if you need help and we will make sure you get a free box!

  25. I just ordered a box and the code worked perfectly.

  26. MaryBeth Murray

    Hi – it looked like the code applied, but it still would like the following information? Will we need to provide this information as well Dan – please check. I see that your note says not to use the code till 6 p.m. – so I will try back then. Maybe they can “test,” it first so we know the check out process is up and working.

    I am excited to try their product!
