This article was written by two amazing estheticians. I take zinc monomethionine for my ocular rosacea. I have done everything the doctors told me to do. Took all their meds. And it wasn’t until I started taking this form of zinc, did I see an amazing improvement in my eyes.
Actually, zinc monomethionine is bound to sulfur, that’s why it’s so good for acne. The methionine also allows the plasma zinc levels to increase without depleting copper. But you still want to limit the duration of taking.
“In zinc monomethionine, zinc is organically bound to a sulfur-containing essential amino acid- Methionine. This provides a soluble, readily absorbable and easily retained source of Zinc.
Zinc monomethionine supplementation significantly increases plasma zinc levels without affecting plasma copper levels. This is important since high levels of zinc often reduce copper absorption. I recommend all my acne and rosacea clients take it while they are clearing their skin.
