For Dietary Supplementation "Why do most places sell the 50mg if is considered NOT SAFE, normally 5 to 10 mg is what's recommended? I stared taking 50mg for hair loss and in a week taking them I've noticed that my hair stoped falling 90% . Sounds great! But now I'm concern if this might start other problems."

For Dietary Supplementation "I have been taking zinc for a month, almost everyday, one tablet, for adult acne. It has made a big difference in my skin's look and feel. I have also cut back on coke, I only have about three a week, if even that many and I haven't had any side effects."

For Dietary Supplementation "I have had a bad headache ever since I've been taking zinc 50 MG tablets. Not sure if it is the zinc. I'm going to cut it in half since I've read you don't want to take more than 40 mgs. And a side effect is headache. Even taking it about 1 month now."

For Dietary Supplementation "zinc gluconate reduced my symptoms of the common cold by 70 percent and reduced the duration of my cold. I have used once a year with the same results. Zinc gluconate 5mg every four hours when cold symptoms begin. Take an extra 2 or 3 lozenges the first day of the cold. Mouth tastes metallic but it's worth it to reduce cold symptoms."

For Dietary Supplementation "Used the honey lemon lozenges and right off the bat had a nasty metallic taste. Horrible and throat felt funny. Later turned into fuzzy tongue and throat feeling tight. Spit out and took a Benadryl. As I was afraid something bad was happening."

For Dietary Supplementation "I always have Zinc (I like gluconate) on hand especially during the fall/winter months. It helps me kick a cold quicker when I take it as I feel something 'coming on'. It's also great (imo) for sleep and stress which in turn help keep the immune system strong also. Taking it in two low doses daily works for me the best and they say not to supplement with dosages over 40 mg for long periods of time (just fyi)."
