but recently i have heard that supplementing with zinc can increase testesterone in women?

I don't think that's necessarily true. Especially 44 grams of it.

Personally, I would cut out the flaxseed, tofu, and soybeans....they can be estrogenic, and excess estrogen can convert to more testosterone.

are you male or female?

Personally, I had success with inositol and DIM.....saw palmetto would be the most popular choice, but for me it didn't work.

B5 can also lower testosterone but I never tried it in large doses to see if that would be effective

anyone?

The data is inconclusive. I have seen some studies showing it increases testosterone, others showing it lowers it, others showing to have no effect. As far as I can tell it's a very personalized response that depends on the individual.

I don't think zinc is all that effective for acne in majority of cases. It's also kind of hard to be deficient in zinc in the first place.
