I bought this recently after taking Zinc Citrate because I wasn't seeing any significant changes with my acne. I heard Picolinate was better and decided to give it a try. Well so far its been working, but slowly. My skin is clearing up, however i do have the occasional pimple and i find that i have eased back on my other products and my nighttime regime (which was pretty rigid) to keep my skin clear. Not sure how long i should be taking this, but i like it enough to buy another bottle. I also take it with a multi-vitamin to make sure i am getting copper.

This is the only product that keeps my adult acne in control. I take two a day and if I miss a few days of taking these, I see the difference. I've tried other forms of zinc too but this zinc picolinate is the only one that works for me. Try and do a test at a health food store where they do the zinc test by making you hold liquid zinc in your mouth. If you're deficient, try these! That's how I first started taking zinc.

Taking one of these pills every day has cured my stubborn adult acne. Within three days, I saw a drastic improvement - I had no new blemishes! I had read about zinc deficiency being a potential cause of persistent acne. I'm so glad I decided to give this a try. And I wish I had've discovered it sooner.
If you struggle with acne, I recommend that you give this a shot. One pill a day can't hurt. And the beauty of zinc picolinate specifically is that it doesn't cause as much nausea as other forms of zinc.

I've done lots of research into dealing with adult female acne, and learned that zinc, particularly zinc picolinate, can be helpful. It's actually not that easy to find this type of zinc, so I'm happy to be able to find it here, and even happier that they frequently go on sale!

I like to control my dosage by opening the capsule and pouring out what I need into a glass of water. It actually has a sweet taste, which is great. I use zinc for preventing the white lines I'd always get on my fingernails. It seems to slightly reduce acne too. Only detriment is the presence of a filler.

Bought this product to serve as double-duty against acne and to fight colds in the winter. Took zinc years ago and noticed that not only was skin consistently clear, I was also the only one among many not getting sick. Decided to pick it up again as I've had a few flare-ups lately. So far so good.
