Ok I found the ultimate vitamin cure

Recommended Posts

okay, another question.. you seem to know a bit about vitamins?

anyway, how much zinc and vitamin C should I take each day in total? After i'm done on Accutane I want to accelerate the removal of my red marks.

I read the most zinc per day is 100mg zinc, but i'm unsure about vitamin C.

thanks for any help!

100 mg of zinc is pushing the limit. This much zinc can deplete your copper levels which can cause other problems. There is no scientific link between zinc supplementation and treating acne. Your Vitamin C recommendation is also excessive, but I guess you will find out the hard way. Yes, I know it is water soluble...

okay, so what is the limit in (mg) per day of vitamin C?

I will take 50mg of Zinc per day once i'm done on accutane, thanks for that info. I guess you know more than me about the vitamins, but I plan to take it to repair the redness and damaged areas of skin that acne has left once the actual active cysts/zits are gone. Is this not what zinc does?

thanks for any help (-:
