Good overall product. I like the fact that there is 50mg per cap and did help my kids who have pyroluria? However, can no longer use as Now uses rice flour as a filler, which we can not take, being a grain, thus a carbohydrate, and is unable to be taken on starch free candida diet. More understanding is required by companies making their products, if they would like more people to buy. There are a lot more people going on grain free paleo diets also. There is no indicator that the rice used is GMO free either.
Too much zinc in a capsule.

First capsule gave me terrible headache. Since then I'm taking it with magnesium. The amount of Zinc in these capsules 50 mg it's a bit too much. I sugest to open the capsule and spread the powder half of the capsule in top of your food. I wish there was a 25mg version of this.
Restricted to Australia

So angry this very economical zinc pic is now restricted and can no longer be shipped to Australia!!! Other zinc pic brands on iherb aren't restricted. iherb can't give me a reason and NOW haven't answered my email about this matter. I found another U.S. website I use that will ship it, but their postage is much higher than iherb's. The restriction status on iherb is a mystery.

Now foods Zinc
Posted by Pauliina on Apr 17, 2014
I bought this to help my bumpy skin, after reading that zinc would help acne, but haven't noticed anything yet, will keep eating the whole bottle and we'll see..
Good zinc; need to have copper also
Posted by Reviewer1533331 on Jan 05, 2014
I was taking this for eczema and it seemed to help some. Then I switched to a zinc formula with copper, which made a much bigger difference. It probably was due to an imbalance I had in minerals.

For the skin
Posted by Reviewer2869923 on Jan 02, 2014
I ordered this for my overall skin condition. I already have very good skin and don't see a difference. But, I do have the idea that if I have a blemmish where ever on my body, it heals better when I take the zinc.
How do you rate a supplement?
Posted by Reviewer2067586 on Jul 02, 2013
My zinc levels went up, I can't feel much difference in my self, but it must mean that this is a good product and i keep buying it.
can no say

most off the time you will not feel any affects from supplements like zinc or vitamins but they can protect the body in certain ways. I take it because it might help with my flagging sex drive but I dont feel anything as yet,
Effective, but bottle is questionable
Posted by Reviewer1870531 on May 06, 2009
The zinc itself seems quite effective, but the repeated opening and closing of the bottle over time seems cause small pieces of purple plastic to mix in with the remaining zinc tablets. For this reason, I'd suggest using zinc that comes in a different type of bottle.
