What is Zinc?
Zinc is a chemical element. It is an essential nutrient, that can't be naturally produced by your body.
Why do we need Zinc as humans?
Zinc is required for many important processes in the human body. These include:
- Growth and development
- Accelerating wound healing
- Boosting the Immune system
- Gene and Enzyme reactions
It can also aid in reducing age related diseases, and can be used to treat acne.
So, how does Zinc boost Botox?
Botox is a neurotoxin. Neurotoxins disrupt normal nerve function - which leads to less wrinkles and smoother skin due to reduced muscle movement!
The effects of neurotoxins usually last between 3-4 months.
Zinc is thought to be required for Botox to act as a working neurotoxin.
A study was done to try and prove this. Research showed that 92% of the patients involved say better results from their Botox treatment. Not only did they notice the Botox working quicker after being initially injected; the results last 'several' weeks longer in comparison to previous treatments.
Where can Zinc be found?
Zinc can be incorporated into your diet by eating zinc rich foods or taking supplements. Foods from animal origin and plants often have high zinc concentrations, such as:
- Dairy products
- White beans/Peas
- Whole-grain cereal products
- Dark chocolate/Cocoa
You can also buy over the counter Zinc supplements from most super markets.
For the best Botox results using Zinc, its recommended to: Take Two Zinc capsules daily (1 AM, 1 PM), 4 days before your appointment.
In conclusion, it's super easy to introduce Zinc into your lifestyle. It will have a whole range of benefits, including boosting your Botox longevity!
