I started taking these tablets because I suspected I had zinc deficiency and YES i have it. I started taking ONE tablet every night and then one night I made a huuuuuuuuuge mistake and took these on an empty stomach, oh boy, you have no idea how much I regret that. It's like I was having a baaaad hangover and had drank a bottle of vodka, that's how sick and naseous I felt. so DON'T TAKE THESE ON AN EMPTY STOMACH, GOT IT?! So ok, now this DOES work, if I take it everyday for a month I will see a huge difference on my nails, libido and less hairloss. So I recomend but i think 50 mg is too strong! And since our bodies don't store zinc, we have to take it everyday to see results, so i think I'll try a different one.

Not sure if these are helping yet as I bought alot of vitamins for my skin. These were part of it but my acne is definitely better than it was before. I'm sure this is helping.

This may be one of the better forms of zinc for most people.

I have a condition called pyroluria. This is when the body is unable to "keep" the zinc and B6. For years I suffered from cramps in the legs whenever I exerted myself and I tried all sorts of supplements to overcome the problem. It was not until I had a urine test for pyroluria did I find the answer. I have been taking the Now Zinc tablets for over a year and no more cramps. As a previous reviewer stated "do not take these on an empty stomach" as you will end up with a bad case of nausea. I grind the tablets up and sprinkle the dust over my cereal in the mornings and no sign of sickness when I do this. As I am aging I am now going to switch to Zinc Picolinate as I see that it has a higher absorption rate and some other benefits, so I may have to halve the dosage.

I don't take this everyday .... just from time to time. I have found that a whole tablet is too much and I feel queasy afterwards, so I cut in half and am fine.

Research on this type of Zinc suggests it is good for Angina. Too early to tell just yet.
