CAN I USE EPIZYN ON ANY PART OF MY SKIN?
Yes, Epizyn is safe to use on any part of your body, including near the eyes and mouth. WHAT DOES EPIZYN DO FOR MY SKIN?
Common skin conditions consist of dryness, acne, itching, scars, burns, irritations, and redness. A zinc deficiency is often to blame for these ailments. Epizyn, when applied as directed, will not only reduce these symptoms but act as a natural healing agent that can be used in conjunction with steroidal and other prescription treatments. HOW QUICKLY WILL I SEE RESULTS?
Results will vary on severity of the skin condition, but typically Epizyn begins to make a noticeable difference within 24 hours. “We have placed seven patients on the Epizyn neutralized zinc topical provided to us. Of those patients, 90% have responded positively with regard to itching, erythema, and scaling.” Dr. Juan Jose Pineda
“The topical appeared to promote epithelialization of the damaged skin in several of our patients. It also appeared to reduce the pain associated with the healing of burns and improved the elasticity of the new skin.” Dr. Henry P. Van Wyk
HOW DOES EPIZYN WORK?
Most are familiar with calamine lotion, the medical industry’s most popular anti-pruritic (agent for relieving itching). Calamine lotion has been used since antiquity (Egyptian development) and is zinc based, as is Epizyn. The zinc in calamine lotion offers modest bioavailability. The zinc in Epizyn, complexed with L-lysine and taurine, is not only stabilized at a neutral pH (the zone of intracellular 6.8 – 7.2 pH), but is carried across cell membranes at much higher levels to deliver optimum anti-pruritic and healing benefits deep within the skin. WHY IS ZINC IMPORTANT TO THE SKIN?
Zinc is an essential trace element and is a component of about 300 metalloenzymes systems. Many of these enzymes play key roles in extra-cellular matrix remodeling; wound healing, connective tissue repair; inflammation and cell proliferation. “In only six days of applying the gel, it had done what no other previously prescribed treatment had been able to do.” Donna Waugh, Portola, CA
Epizyn is the clear choice for treating many skin conditions with an all natural product. Our
methylparaben and propylparaben are derived from natural fruit and plant resources. We are committed
to providing the safest and most pure natural skin care product. Taurine and L-lysine are added as an
immunodeficiency component as well as aid in cellular penetration. Zinc gluconate has been proven in
clinical studies to aid in the healing of skin wounds and other conditions.
Zinc gluconate (also called zincum gluconicum) is the zinc salt of gluconic acid. It is an ionic compound
consisting of two moles of gluconate for each mole of zinc. Zinc glucose typically by Aspergillus niger, but
also by other fungi, e.g. Penicillium, or by bacteria, e.g. Actobacter, Pseudomonas and Gluconobacter. In
its pure form, it is a white to off-white powder. It can also be manufactured by electrolytic oxidation,
although this is a more expensive process. The advantages are a lower microbiological profile, and a
more complete reaction, yielding a product with a longer shelf life.
Zinc is an essential trace mineral needed by the body for proper growth and maintenance. While zinc is involved in many functions of the body, including enzyme activity, protein synthesis and carbohydrate metabolism, it is particularly beneficial to the skin. It aids in collagen production, decreases free radical activity, helps prevent the growth of bacteria and reduces inflammation. TOPICAL USES
Zinc can be used topically, for sun protection and the accelerated healing of skin. Zinc is found in creams to alleviate diaper rash, as well as ointments used for the healing of wounds, cuts and abrasions and variety of skin conditions. Zinc oxide can also be found in many sun protection preparations. In this form, zinc acts as a physical sunblock, providing complete UVB/UVA protection. (It is also the only active sunscreen ingredient approved by the FDA for use on infants under 6 months old.) Epizyn will rapidly assist in the body’s natural capability to store skin back to its natural state without any known side effects. DOSAGE & SOURCES
The daily recommended dietary allowance (RDA) of zinc for adults age 19 and older is 11 milligrams for males and 8 milligrams for females. The body naturally produces zinc, however, you can increase your body’s supply of this mineral via diet or supplements. Zinc is found in many foods, including red meat, poultry and shellfish (notably oysters and crab). Other food sources include beans, nuts, grains and dairy products. Zinc can also be found in most multivitamin and mineral supplements. Epizyn as a topical will increase the body’s zinc level. Without oral intake, there is no concern for toxicity levels. DEFICIENCY
While zinc deficiency is rare in industrialized countries, the most common signs of zinc depletion are seen in skin that is rough or dry, hair that is dull, fingernails that are weak (or have white spots on them), mood swings, acne, dermatitis and skin healing that is delayed or sluggish. Such symptoms can be alleviated by intaking adequate amounts of zinc each day. Note that a consistent intake of this mineral is important, as the body does not have a way to store zinc. WARNINGS
If you are upping your intake of zinc, also increase your intake of vitamin A. Zinc is synergistic and works best in conjunction with vitamin A, calcium and phosphorus. Also, if you are taking both iron and zinc via supplements, do take them at different times of the day so absorption of one does not compete with the other. Excessively high intake of zinc have been linked to copper deficiency, as zinc is thought to inhibit absorption of this mineral. WHAT IS THE MOST IMPORTANT INFORMATION I SHOULD KNOW ABOUT ZINC GLUCONATE?
Before using zinc gluconate, talk to your doctor, pharmacist, herbalist, or other healthcare provider. You may not be able to use zinc gluconate if you have certain medical conditions. Avoid taking this medication with foods that are high in calcium or phosphorus, which can make it harder for your body to absorb zinc gluconate. Foods high in calcium or phosphorus include milk, cheese, yogurt, ice cream, dried beans or peas, lentils, nuts, peanut butter, beer, cola soft drinks, and hot cocoa. Zinc gluconate can make certain antibiotics less effective. Tell your doctor about all other medications you are using before you start taking zinc gluconate. WHAT SHOULD I DISCUSS WITH MY HEALTHCARE PROVIDER BEFORE TAKING ZINC
