Frequently Asked Questions

What is ZYTAZE?

ZYTAZE provides nutritional support to enhance the effectiveness of botulinum toxin injections in cosmetic procedures.

What is Botox (botulinum toxin)?

Botulinum toxin is a protein derived from Clostridium botulinum that helps stop muscle spasms. Muscle spasms are caused by chemical messages sent to the muscles from nerves. These messages tell the muscles to contract (tighten up). Botulinum toxin blocks these messages.

What are the ingredients in ZYTAZE?

Each capsule contains Zinc as Zinc Citrate 25 mg and Phytase 500 mg. Other ingredients include: Silicon Dioxide, Magnesium Stearate, and Microcrystalline Cellulose.

What is phytase?

Phytase is an enzyme that effectively breaks down phytates, a group of phosphate-containing compounds which tightly bind zinc in the intestinal tract and prevent zinc absorption. Phytates are found in whole grain breads, whole-wheat products, many cereals, soy, oats, legumes (including peas, peanuts and peanut butter), beans, corn, nuts, rice, and other foods as well.

If I take more zinc and phytase, will it increase the effectiveness of my botulinum toxin injections?

More of a good thing is not necessarily better. Too much zinc can cause gastrointestinal symptoms of nausea, vomiting, diarrhoea, and stomach pain as well as dizziness, kidney dysfunction, anemia, and decreased immune function. Too much zinc may actually DECREASE the effect of botulinum toxins. Too much phytase on a regular basis may cause too much zinc absorption resulting in the previously mentioned side effects. Consuming a controlled amount of zinc and phytase prior to and at the time of receiving botulinum toxin injections is recommended to enhance effects without the risk of zinc toxicity.

When do I take ZYTAZE?

Two capsules daily for four days prior to and on the day of receiving botulinum toxin injections. Each package contains 10 capsules. ZYTAZE may be taken during meals or snacks, but avoid taking ZYTAZE within two hours of medications and/or supplements.

Why should I take ZYTAZE before my next botulinum toxin treatment?

To be effective, botulinum toxin requires the presence of zinc and current dietary trends suggest that many patients are zinc deficient. ZYTAZE is specially formulated with a unique patent-pending combination of organic zinc and phytase, an enzyme that aids zinc absorption thereby enhancing the effectiveness of botulinum toxin injections.

How is ZYTAZE supplied?

ZYTAZE is supplied in a blister pack of 10 clear, hard-shell capsules containing a white/off white crystalline powder.

How much does ZYTAZE cost?

The cost is currently £42.50 incl VAT plus FREE P&P

Will ZYTAZE enhance the effects of dermal fillers?

No. The ingredients in ZYTAZE are specifically formulated to support the effectiveness of botulinum toxins. For best results, use ZYTAZE in conjunction with botulinum toxin treatments.

Should I inform my Aesthetic Doctor that I am taking ZYTAZE?

We would advise you to notify your Aesthetic Doctor that you are taking ZYTAZE.

Are there any known side effects to taking ZYTAZE?

There are no known side effects of zinc at normal dosages or of phytase used for short durations. Zinc at dosages above 50 mg daily is associated with reduced immune system functioning and is therefore not recommended.

What are the contraindications for ZYTAZE?

ZYTAZE should not be used without physician supervision, or in those persons showing hypersensitivity to any component of this preparation. Zinc may decrease the absorption of tetracycline (Achromycin, Sumycin) and ciprofloxacin (Cipro). Take any zinc supplement at least two hours before or after taking these antibiotics. Use of the following drugs increases the loss of zinc from the body or interferes with absorption: aspirin; azidothymidine, zidovudine; captopril; enalapril; estrogen oral contraceptives; penicillamine; the thiazide class of diuretics including chlorothiazide, chlorthalidone, hydrochlorothiazide, metolazone. No known contraindications for phytase. Women who are pregnant, nursing or may become pregnant should consult their physician before using this product. Zinc supplements may cause mild nausea in susceptible persons when taken on an empty stomach. Avoid taking within two hours of medications and/or supplements.

What should I do if my product arrives damaged?

Please email customerservice@zytazeonline.co.uk with your full name, address details, phone number and the Lot number of your ZYTAZE product and we will contact you.

Can I return the ZYTAZE I order if I change my mind or do not want it?

In the interest of product integrity, we do not accept returns.

Why is there a limit to the number of Zytaze I can buy in one transaction?

We want you to have the best product for the best possible results. Given the time period between botulinum toxin treatments can be between 3 and 4 months we recommend a maximum purchase of 2 packets at any one time so product is not left unused for a long period.

Will I get a reminder when to make my next purchase?

Yes, you will be sent an email 8-10 weeks after your purchase of Zytaze to remind you to make another purchase before your next botulinum toxin appointment is due. Remember, you need to start taking Zytaze 4 days prior to your treatment.
