Zinc is an essential mineral required for many cellular processes, including wound healing, protecting against free radicals, and the proper functioning of the immune system. A deficiency in this mineral may impair the immune response and promote systemic inflammation. Substantially high levels of zinc are found in the skin, especially in the epidermis. Zinc plays a role in maintenance of skin integrity, with many dermatologic conditions (including acne) being associated with zinc insufficiency. Thus, combining this mineral with other skin-supportive nutrients appears to be beneficial in addressing skin conditions.
Optimal Zinc Plus capsules are formulated to provide comprehensive support for healthy skin by focusing on the internal healing process to support skin health and appearance from the inside out.* Formulated to provide comprehensive support for healthy skin by focusing on the internal healing process and overall skin health.* The key ingredients are pantothenic acid and carnitine. Pantothenic acid plays a significant role in maintaining keratinocytes, the predominant cell type in the skin’s epidermis. It also promotes normal lipid metabolism and may affect the skin’s balance of oils. Carnitine helps pantothenic acid work more efficiently in lipid metabolism and is necessary for normal cellular repair.* Additional skin-supportive nutrients include zinc, copper, selenium, chromium, niacin, biotin, and vitamins B6, A, D, and E.
