multivitamin - IODINE + ZINC

I take multi vitamins for my general health, also hoping they would benefit my skin, i have 2 questions:

1. Is it better or worse for my skin? as iodine is bad, zinc is good, and it has 100% rda of both.

2. Can you get multivitamins without iodine?

thanks for all help

It's really impossible to say if it will be "better" or "worse" in your specific situation. It will depend on the causes of your own acne (which unfortunately are hard to work out, I have that problem), and on the current nutrition in your diet. With that in mind, though:

- You can take a separate zinc supplement.

- There are multivitamins without iodine.

- A small amount of iodine is important to your health, but you will most likely get this from food.

So I'd say change to something else.
