Guys I recently bought Pfizer zinc supplement of 22mg which eliminates stress and anxiety and I also read on few articles that it can help my acne and anxiety which I feel everyday for not a big reason. I already ate one tablet and really scared so the help will be appreciated

    Hi, I take a Solgar 22mg zinc supplement once a night before bed time and it's perfectly safe! So don't worry!

    Whether it makes a difference to acne I don't know. I've been taking it for probably over six months and it hasn't got worse but I don't know if it's actually helped! I feel like it might have improved my immune system, I only had one cold during the whole of last year! You may as well continue to take the rest of the pack and see if you see any improvement in your skin....
