Zinc & Skin Health


Zinc , found in our Organic Beef Liver primarily serves to protect your immune system by preventing viruses and bacteria from invading your body. One of the many essential nutrients zinc is also an important one that your body needs.


Apart from nourishing your body from the inside out, adding zinc is also one of the best minerals for your skin and hair heath. 

Zinc is an essential mineral which is required in a number of cellular processes occurring in the human body. It is needed for various health benefits such as cell growth, division, immunity, hormone production, wound healing, thyroid function, blood clotting and eye health.


Zinc is known to boost T-cell production, which is an important component of the immune system responsible for fighting off infections. Low levels of zinc are connected with reduced T-cell function, which explains why those who are zinc deficient are more prone to illness, with weakened immune systems. 


Zinc has anti-inflammatory properties that may help people with acne, rosacea, psoriasis, eczema  and wound repair.


Zinc benefits for the skin

  • Sun-protection

Sun rays can cause detrimental effects on skin, like free radical damage photoaging, hyperpigmentation and dark spots. Zinc oxide (ZnO) acts as a shield to protect your skin from UV radiation.

  • Reduces excess sebum and acne

Acne develops when oil, dirt and bacteria build up in skin pores, causing the skin around the pore to turn red, swollen and tender.

  • Prevents clogging of pores

Skin cells called keratinocytes produce keratin and also forms a barrier between skin and environmental aggressors. Production of keratinocytes, in excess can lead to blocked pores and acne.

  • Promotes skin healing

Zinc is known to support wound healing. With its antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties, it enhances skin repair function and reduces redness and inflammation. It helps to relieve eczema, acne rosacea, irritation, dermatitis, itchy and dry skin.

  • Reduces hyperpigmentation
