Only the zinc was required enough for the acne to go away?

How bad was your acne prior to taking the supplements?

+1 no matter who you are, this will help any acne sufferer, watchout for the high zinc doses though!

I would like to ask Confessions if he took Zinc alone in the past, and did't work alone, without Chromium. And If he know the reason why it,s better to add Chromium.

i take 30 mg zinc a day. it decreased my acne by 50%. i am 100% clear by eliminating carbs from my diet. anyway. when i took 45mg i was also completely clear instead of only just 50% problem it caused me depression and lack of appetite. i got my friend to try zinc 50mg and now he is 60% clear. before he had so much acne and was considering taking accutane. the bottom line is you should try zinc chelated. that is what worked for me. but if you want to get rid of all your acne, i recomend cutting carbs out of your diet.

How long was he taking the zinc supplements for before seeing results?

 

Also, do you take them early in the day, or at night (I noticed if I take zinc at night I cannot sleep)

it took him 2 weeks and half to see results. we both take them in the morning. 



the only zinc suplement that has worked for me is chelated zinc. that is what my friend takes too

I take Zinc 30 mg every night, Magnesium, 2 hours later after Zinc, and chromium once a week.

I take them at nights since minerals are better absorbed at nights, also magnesium aids sleep. 

 

But Zinc has definitely helped me even at this lower dose. I hardly get any zits. My face is completely clear atm.

 

 

 

 

P.s - I also take other vitamins & mineral supplements according to my needs.

I generally take one zicam a day because I'm really paranoid about my teacher husband bringing home gross highschool germs and I oddly like the taste of the orange kind. I always figured I could use the extra zinc anyway. I know it's great for your skin!
