How it works

Zinc is an essential mineral used throughout the body for many functions including wound healing and the normal oil gland function of the skin. It is also involved in the maintenance of vitamin A levels, transport and usage; and for protein synthesis, (particularly collagen synthesis). Vitamin A and zinc act together as skin antioxidants, and may be of assistance in the treatment of acne, other skin conditions, and the healing of wounds.

Additionally, zinc, magnesium and vitamin B6 are co-enzyme factors to essential fatty acid pathway enzymes, where they are involved in the normal production of prostaglandins.
