It works as an antioxidant
Bio Active Collagen Plus™ contains this valuable mineral. Though not technically an antioxidant (like vitamins C and E, for example), zinc is a key part of your skin’s dietary defence squad. The mineral lessens the formation of damaging free radicals and protects skin's lipids (fats) and fibroblasts—the cells that make collagen, your skin’s support structure—when skin is exposed to UV light, pollution and other skin-agers. It helps heal and rejuvenate skin. When you cut yourself, zinc goes to work. First, the amount of the mineral in the skin surrounding the cut increases as enzymes and proteins ramp up to protect against infection, control inflammation and produce new cells and transport them to close up the broken skin. But even healthy, intact skin relies on zinc for new cell production and the function of cell membranes.
