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.

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

Zinc is important for the health of your teeth and gums, so if you have problems take zinc and vitamin C to help heal gums. Propolis is also good at healing irritated gums. Now Foods is inexpensive and this zinc is good quality.

I take zinc whenever I feel a sore throat coming on. One or two pills a day does the trick. I've recommended this to relatives who have had similar success for ear and throat pain. It's best to take this as soon as the soreness starts, rather than waiting until it gets bad.

This product has really helped my family keep from getting sick. Last year we seemed to be sick all year and this year we have stayed pretty healthy!!!

Zinc is needed when ill or injured or for pre-teens and teens sexual development and by men to protect the prostate. 50 mg is a significant and yet safe dose. The tablets are small, round (like aspirin) and easy to swallow. You only need one a day. A great buy and easy compliance daily for men and boys and women if ill or injured.
