Hi, can use evening primrose oil fish oil with this product?
Hi. Is there any differences between bio zinc & bio zinc plus? I bought bio zinc plus for my acne problem. Is it the right supplement since the packaging of bio zinc plus stated for health supplement, not skin health.
How long is safe for older teens to continuously take Bio Zinc to improve acne? Should it be stopped periodically and if so, how often is recommended? This product is making a huge improvement to their acne prone skin. Would it be safe for a 15 year old also?
Will biozinc help will acne marks and how long will it take for all of the acne to go away?
Hi, thanks for your question.

It would be suitable for your husband to continue to take the Bio Zinc at the recommended dose of 1 tablet per day. Bio Zinc contains 25mg of elemental zinc per tablet. The upper limit of zinc is 80mg of elemental zinc per day, so unless he is consuming other supplements which also contain zinc, then you would need to consider the dosage and appropriateness of use. Please feel free to contact the Advisory Service on 1800 803 760 (free call within Australia) if you have any further queries.

Kind regards,

Hi there, I recently purchased Bio Zinc for my 40 year old husband as a supplement to improve his skin condition and overall immunity. He has no other health issues. Will taking daily dose be advisable? I have read that prolong overdose of zinc could lead to damaging vital organs. Appreciate your clarification. Thanks.
Hello,
Recently I purchased this product with high desire in acne treatment.
I used to try some products with vitamin A, E but it's not effective on me.
I reached a blog recommend about this product and decided to try it.
I had a question that I'm using another product as Japanese Spirulina seaweed with those ingredients as :
"(Spirulina nutrients in 100 g 100%, etc.)
-Minerals, calcium 60-221 mg, iron 60.0-94.5mg, 1060-1743 mg potassium, magnesium 250-389 mg, zinc 4.0-7.4mg, copper 0.3-0.4mg, Lynn 781-1230 mg, manganese 1.7-2.6mg,-vitamins, beta-carotene 80-200 mg, vitamin B1 2.9-4.9mg, 3.5-4.8mg vitamin B2, vitamin B6 0.7-1.4mg, vitamin B12 61.0-184.8ug, vitamin E 6.0-11.6mg, inositol 70-147 mg, folic acid 168-265ug, 23.1-36.9mg biotin, Pantothenic acid 1.2-1.8mg,-, γ-linolenic acid 1120-1680 mg, linoleic acid 760-1198 mg"

I wonder if there is any interactions between these products
One more question about usage, it's better if I use zinc before dinner or after dinner? and can you tell me the most effective way to use it as example after 15 minute after dinner or something like that?
Thanks!
Hello, my throat is very sensitive when taking tablets, is it okay if i were to break the tablet in 2 and then take it or must this be taken as a whole to effectively work?
