Zinc is one of the most important minerals for human bodies, and possibly the most important one if you have acne. Vegetarian or vegan diets, lots of stress, exercising or sweating a lot, and taking birth control pills are just a few of the reasons why you could be running low on zinc. If you struggle with your skin or have depression, it’s almost certain that your zinc is low. Luckily, it’s so easy and inexpensive to test your zinc levels at home. Here’s how to do it!
I’ve been supplementing zinc for almost a year now and it’s still deficient, so I can’t stress enough how important it is to check your levels. Don’t think that if you eat well your zinc is going to be high. Even if you eat lots of animal products, you might still not be absorbing enough zinc or you might be losing it due to something like Pyroluria.
All you need for the DIY zinc test is some zinc sulphate crystals (which you can get on eBay for a few dollars) and some distilled water, so each test will literally cost you pennies.
