Dosage (The Daily): 20mg of zinc from zinc glycinate

Unique Features: Inexpensive zinc supplements often contain zinc sulfate, which is known for its poor absorption rates and potential to cause stomach discomfort. Our commitment lies in selecting a form of zinc that your body can efficiently process and absorb, ensuring its effectiveness.

Understanding the Benefits

Purpose: Zinc, an essential dietary mineral, is often linked to insulin resistance, acne, and depression when levels are low. Additionally, zinc plays a role in sebum production and contributes to the regulation of skin oil levels, making it a valuable factor in maintaining balanced skin health. Balancing zinc levels can help improve blood sugar, reduce acne, boost mood, and regulate skin oil production.
