UK First: Anti-ageing Supplement Extends the Effects of Botox®
Despite the recession and a relatively hefty average price-tag of £250-400 for Botulinum Toxin (Botox®) injections, the popularity of the procedure shows no sign of waning. Fans of the wrinkle-relaxing treatment can rejoice however, with the UK introduction of a US nutritional supplement which enhances the effects of Botox®, meaning they can wait longer between appointments, saving both time and money. In a recent study (Journal of Drugs in Dermatology) over 9 out of 10 patients showed an increase in effect by nearly a third.
For Botox® to be effective, each of its molecules must bind with a molecule of zinc within the human tissues after being injected. Without zinc, the otherwise powerful toxins have little or no effect. If a person has inadequate zinc in their tissues, then the Botox® will have a significantly diminished effect. There are a number of reasons why zinc absorption is inhibited, but the biggest culprits responsible are phytates, found in whole grain breads, whole-wheat products, many cereals, soy, oats, legumes, beans, corn, nuts and rice. ZYTAZE® (www.zytazeonline.co.uk) is specially formulated with a unique combination of organic zinc along with phytase (an enzyme that neutralizes phytates in the digestive tract aiding in the absorption of zinc) to enhance and extend the effectiveness of the wrinkle-relaxing treatment. The recommended dosage is two capsules each day for four days prior to and on the day of receiving Botox® injections.
