Acne + Zinc
Hi all !
I come to you because I have been taking zinc for 1 year for my acne problems. I have tried everything (antibios, etc.) and zinc has proven to be the only way to reduce my acne. I take the daily dose that was forbidden to me and I have no side effects. BUT I have been taking it continuously for 1 year (when I stop, the acne comes back after 5 days). Do you think that I can without pb continue to take it without stopping?
Thank you in advance for your answers
yes as long as you do not exceed too much the NRVs (recommended nutritional value) because an excess could create you other problem more important than acne.
On the other hand, you need to be able to find the zinc NRVs in your diet to be able to stop taking it as a supplement
Thank you very much for your response
Precisely in the Effizinc tablet that I take daily there is 15mg. If I don’t take these 15mg the acne will come back
15mg is just the VNR
And the risks of excess are if you exceed 150mg
You still have a lot
Regarding foods rich in zinc, here is a small listing:
|Food rich in Zinc, per 100gr||Zinc content|
|Calf and pork liver||8 mg|
|Red meat||5 mg|
|Whole wheat bread||5 mg|
|Egg yolk||4 mg|
|Fish and shellfish||1.5 to 3 mg|
|Legumes||2 to 5 mg|
|Dried fruits||2 mg|
Thank you very much
