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.

Love the price and the tablets. In Norway zinc tablets are expensive.

Whenever I have a stuffy nose or feel like a cold is coming on, I take a Zinc. Within an hour the stuffiness or feeling of catching a cold is gone. I carry these with me all the time and have not had a cold or flu in years.

I think this is really helping clear my adult acne, more so than other forms of zinc that I've taken.

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.

I have been taking zinc for a while now, but a quarter of the way through this bottle, I realized these tablets were making me nauseous. Im not sure if the amount was too much for me to handle. I will try a lower dosage.
