Zinc and Acne - Many Who Have Acne are Deficient on Zinc

While Zinc isn’t a magical cure-all for acne, it turns out that many acne sufferers are deficient in zinc.

Some symptoms of Zinc deficiency are white spots on your fingernails, dry skin, hangnails, frequent colds, hair loss, diarrhea, low sex derive and, of course, acne.

For some people, a Zinc deficiency is the “straw that breaks the camel’s back” when it comes to their acne, and so taking Zinc improves their skin right away. For the vast majority of zinc-deficient people, however, this is just one piece in the greater acne puzzle, which includes a variety of other diet and lifestyle factors.

Zinc Picolinate is the best source for acne sufferers and studies suggest that zinc picolinate is the most easily absorbed form.

Don’t take zinc on an empty stomach. It should be taken halfway through a meal or right after eating. The dosage for treating acne would be 30 to 135 mg daily.

Zinc deficiency is a common problem with one-third of the world’s population suffering from zinc deficiency.
