Hello everyone,

This is my first post here smile.gif

I am not sure if this is the right place to ask this but here goes. I have successfully controlled my mild acne by taking a Optizinc supplement (Now Foods Optizinc 30mg - twice daily). It has done wonders for my skin but now I'm getting to the end of my second batch and I am now considering replacing it with this multivitamin:

Life Extension - Life Extension Two Per Day 120 Vegetarian Tablets

Vitamin, Amount, % Daily Value
Vitamin A (as 90% beta-carotene and 10% acetate), 5000 IU, 100%
Vitamin C (as ascorbic acid, niacinamide, and calcium ascorbates), 500 mg, 833%
Vitamin D (as ergocalciferol), 2000 IU, 500%
Vitamin E (as D-alpha tocopheryl succinate), 200 IU, 667%
Thiamin (vitamin B1) (as thiamine HCl), 75 mg, 5000%
Riboflavin (vitamin B2), 50 mg, 2941%
Niacin (as niacinamide and niacinamide ascorbate), 50 mg, 250%
Vitamin B6 (as pyridoxine HCl), 75 mg, 3750%
Folate [from (Citrus limon) extract (peel)], 400 mcg, 100%
Vitamin B12 ((as cyanocobalamin), 300 mcg, 5000%
Biotin, 300 mcg, 100%
Pantothenic acid (as D-calcium pantothenate), 100 mg, 1000%
Calcium (from D-calcium pantothenate and calcium ascorbate), 12 mg, 1%
Iodine (from Atlantic kelp), 150 mcg, 100%
Magnesium (as magnesium oxide), 100 mg, 25%
Zinc (as OptiZinc® zinc monomethiunine), 30 mg, 200%
Selenium (as L-selenomethionine and sodium selenate), 200 mcg, 286%
Manganese (as manganese gluconate), 2 mg, 100%
Chromium [as Crominex® 3+ chromium stabilized with (Capros® standardized Phyllanthus emblica extract (fruit) and PrimaVie™ purified and standardized Shilajit)], 200 mcg, 167%
Molybdenum (as molybdenum amino acid chelate), 100 mcg, 133%
Boron (as boron amino acid chelate), 3 mg, **
Choline (as choline bitartrate), 20 mg, **
Inositol, 50 mg, **
Biolut™ Marigold Extract (Tagetes erecta) (flowers) [std. to 5 mg trans-lutein and 155 mcg trans-zeaxanthin], 11.12 mg **
Lycopene (from Lyc-O-Mato™ natural tomato extract), 2 mg, **
PABA (para-aminobenzoic acid), 30 mg, **
** Daily Value not established

It contains a lot of other vitamins and minerals which I believe will contribute to a better general health, and it also contains 30mg of Optizinc.

My question is: will it be as effective as taking a standalone Zinc supplement or will the presence of a dozen other vitamins and minerals interfere with the absorption of OptiZinc?

Thank you for your help smile.gif
