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.

The bottle lasts a long time. Taking these on empty stomach could cause nausea but that is normal when taking zinc supplements. The tablets could have been smaller, they are fairly large and are somewhat difficult to swallow.

I take Now Foods Zinc Gluconate 50 mg tablets for a zinc deficiency. To avoid side effects I drink milk and eat food when I take my daily tablet. Some of the other brands of zinc gluconate make me feel bad, but this one doesn't.

My husband had IBD before he was vegan and on a mostly FODMAP diet and occasionally during stressful periods his zinc uptake dips a bit, this is good support. Taken in combo with B-12 everything returns to optimal levels.

Break into half and let it melt in your mouth – really helps against cold.

Helps me to get my taste back since i started being unable to taste sweetness in artificial sweeteners for some reason. This zinc is rather readily absorbed by the body (seeing as it cured my lack of sweet taste)

I use this whenever I feel that my immune system needs a boost, together with Vit C and garlic.

My aunts , my mum as me have been taking this zinc tablets and we can say that it works for the hair , my aunt lost a lot of hair after a surgery ; since she started to take the tablets she recovered her hair and her wellness . About the inmune system , it doesn't makes u superman but it helps to keep u healthy longer . The tablets doesn't injures the stomach so it's recomendable for people with stomach diseases .
