Q & A

1. Can minerals help in prevention and treatment of acne?

Yes, minerals can be helpful in both prevention and treatment of acne. Many creditable published research articles endorse the plausible role of minerals in successful prevention and treatment of acne.

2. Which minerals can help in prevention and treatment of acne? How do they act?

The minerals that are most commonly used in the prevention and treatment of acne are Zinc and Chromium.
Zinc has a proven anti inflammatory effect and helps in decreasing the inflammation accompanying acne.
Zinc is also known to regulate/ control the oil production in sebaceous glands, thereby preventing excess oil production and the resultant clogging. Clogging is one of the first steps in formation of acne (please refer to earlier pages).
Chromium has a role in the regulation of glucose present in our blood. Glucose is a food material for bacteria (present in skin) that cause acne. Therefore chromium indirectly curtails formation of acne by removing food material for the acne causing bacteria.

3. Is Zinc well absorbed by body? Does form of zinc has an impact on its absorption?

The body does not readily absorb zinc. The form of zinc has an impact on its absorption by the body. Scientists have invented a new form of zinc known as L- Methionine bound zinc complex. This new form of zinc has better absorption than the zinc obtained from conventional sources.
This new form of zinc with better absorption has been patented in U.S.

4. Which type of acne can be prevented or treated by Acnacare?

Acnacare is more helpful in prevention and treatment of mild to moderate types of acne e.g acne vulgaris. It is especially useful for teenage acne that occur during puberty. The severe forms of acne may prove to be difficult to be treated by acnacare alone and require a special treatment under guidance of your doctor.

5. How is Acnacare able to prevent and treat acne?

The nutrients present in acnacare have a beneficial effect on regulation of hormones (many hormonal changes take place during puberty; acnacare is especiall helpful in teenage acne) and excess oil production in sebaceous glands. Both hormones and excess oil production are known causes of acne.
Also acnacare has Zinc and Chromium. Zinc decreases inflammation (redness and pain) that accompanies acne. Chromium curtails formation of acne by removing food material for the acne causing bacteria.

6. What is the recommended dose of Acnacare?
It is recommended that you should take 1 capsule of acnacare three times a day with meals for beneficial effect on acne.

7. Do acne affect only women?
No, acne is a general problem that affects both men and women.

8. Can men take Acnacare?

Yes, men can also take acnacare. Acnacare does not contain any hormones (unlike some other preparations which have female hormones) that can lead to side effects in men. It only has natural ingredients that are safe for men also.

9. Does Acnacare have any side effect?

Acnacare contains natural and safe ingredients, which do not have any known side effects at commonly recommended doses.
However, if in a rare case, you encounter any adverse effect while taking or applying acnacare, immediately stop its consumption/ application and consult your doctor (if needed).

10. Can I use Acnacare capsules, face wash and gel simultaneously? Is their simultaneous use safe?

Yes, you can use Acnacare capsules, face wash and gel simultaneously. Their simultaneous use is absolutely safe. Infact, it would be much more beneficial to you, if you take capsules and also use acnacare gel and face wash.
