i wonder when should i take the bio zinc pills, after lunch or dinner; and the perfect time to take it after lunch/dinner? (after 15 or 30 mins, things like that), many thanks!
Ive been taking bio zinc for a year now and it worked great with improving my skin, i recently ran out of it so i went to get more, but now when i take the tablets my stomach tends to hurt. It never hurt before so i dont know why its doing it, is there something i should be doing in order to prevent an upset stomach?
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.

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.
