Hello, Just bought bio zinc because I want to try if it will help me with my acne problem. Is it okay to take mega magnesium with bio zinc? Is there any side effect? How long will I take bio zinc?

Thanks

Hi, I've been adding this Bio Zinc to my diet as I suffer from mild dermatitis - I have tried everything and no response. Yet, when I take the Zinc, I can definitely see a positive change. However, since I have been taking this Zinc supplement, I have been suffering from constipation. I cannot remember the last time I have been constipated as my fiber intake is high on a daily basis.

Other supplements I take: Fish Oil, Glucosamine and Vitamin C.

I know the Zinc is causing the constipation because I have stopped using it a number of times, and each time my bowels improve. However, when I go back on it, constipated again.

I just want to know - has anyone else had this problem? Is it common? Can it be the pill itself, or the fact that I am supplementing Zinc.

I don't know what to do - my Zinc bottle contains 160 odd tablets and I don't want to waste it because it works for my dermatitis. I can't return the item because I have already used a few tablets.

Thanks in advance.
