Imagine this: by taking a simple vitamin supplement for 4 days prior to your next Botox or Dysport injection, the effects of your Botox or Dysport injection would be 93% more effective! It’s true and the supplement may be on the market within the next month or so. If the supplement, which is to be available by prescription, isn’t exorbitantly overpriced, it would be a real money-saver for those of you who benefit from Botox or Dysport for wrinkles and/or migraines.
Dr. Charles Soparkar and his fellow researchers at The Methodist Hospital in Houston, TX, performed a study showing that taking organic zinc plus the enzyme phytase for a period of four days before receiving Botox or Dysport injections made the toxin 93% more effective. As a result, the researchers filed for a patent of the combination and ZYTAZE™ will be available any day now. Although the majority of the patients in the study were being treated for a rare form of eyelid spasm, this research is good news for anyone who gets Botox or Dysport for cosmetic reasons.
“Surprisingly, the results showed that in over 90% of the patients studied, the zinc/phytase combination resulted in a remarkable improved responsiveness to treatment of blepharospasm using the same amount of botulinum toxin as previously used,” said Soparkar, M.D., Ph.D., an oculoplastic surgeon at The Methodist Hospital. “The toxins seemed to have greater effect and last longer. Potentially, this could mean using less toxin, offering patients financial savings, greater safety, and more consistent results.”
