Need Help With Zinc

3 posts in this topic

I bought zinc supplement early this day, and I'm having some questions, please help me!

I heard that vitamin B6 is not good for acne, especially at high value, but here's the problem.

I bought BIO ZINC (Zinc chelate in the form of Amino Acid which is considered quite expensive and easy to be absorbed) but it comes with

-Zinc (from Zinc amino chelate) 14.9 mg

-Magnesium (from magnesium phosphate) 18.6 mg

-Manganese (from Manganese amino acid chelate) 2 mg

-Vitamin A 2500 IU

-Vitamin B6 (Pyridoxine) 50 mg (2500 % US RDA) (!!)

My question is that should I take this product (because it has SO MUCH B6 in it) (but I've also heard that it's great when use B6 with zinc) and if I should, how much pill a day should I take to make my acne better.

Thank you in advance and sorry for my bad Grammar because I'm not native speaker.

Could try it and see what happens. Some B6 can help, but too much can be a problem. This amount I do not know sorry.

Just taking Zinc alone might help. Take after meals and avoid calcium rich foods as minerals like calcium and zinc compete for the same metabolic pathway if i remember correctly.

Zinc can cause extreme stomach/intestinal problems long term, at high doses, and especially on an emtpy stomach. I stopped because i was getting extreme abdominal cramping and had bleeding in my stool.

Word to the wise.
