What is the best kind of zinc to take for acne? And do i need to supplement also with copper if I am taking zinc?

Also the fact that popping zinc pills increases copper needs, which aren't all that rich on a paleo diet.

Silly logic in my opinion, vitamins aren't that expensive.

Assuming there is a likelihood that you do have a deficiency is a few dollars not worth the shot to clear up your issues? It's certainly a cheap way to check something off the list vs doctors visits and tests.

Just as harmful as the others, symptoms: empty wallet.

Why the 'better' part?

Is zinc more harmful than other supplements?

Better have evidence of zinc deficiency before supplementing. Better yet, just include beef in your diet.

Probably zinc glycinate. Supplementing with copper at random isn't a good idea, especially when zinc deficiency may be present present.

You can get zinc from muscle meats or shell fish. You can get copper from liver or dark chocolate. If you must take a pill, get one where the zinc is a chelated form. There are zinc supplements that also contain copper along for the ride.
