Zinc and its importance in your body

So, it is important to ensure that zinc is accompanied by other essential micronutrients when taken as a supplement, in order to ensure your health and that of your unborn child, if pregnant.

The same applies if you are taking ZinAc to help to make your immune system more active.

ZinAc was one of my first formulations that I had made as a tablet when I established the Sydney Acne Care Centre in the early eighties. Why? Because, when a naturopath helped me to recover from a severe illness in the late ’70s, the first thing I noticed was that I broke out in pimples as I was recovering!

So, I did my research and worked out that was why everybody was getting acne. We had lots of fun, clearing up acne* on mature-age sufferers who had had established conditions.

One day at the Centre, I received a letter from a GP who asked me to help his patient who had chronic fatigue. When I asked why, he said that one of his patients had both CFS AND acne – “and you cleared up both. So now I am sending you ALL my CFS sufferers!” True story.

And to be honest, that is exactly how I felt following the original naturopath’s help.

I later learnt from Cheraskin, Cameron and others the very real and logical reasons why this was all happening, and it was (and is) exciting being at the frontier of applying deficient nutrients to achieve observable wellness outcomes that have originated from nothing more than zinc and other micronutrient deficiencies!
