Zinc is needed
Zinc is essential
By Bobbie Sue Grant
Helped with a sense-of-taste disorder.
After I had a surgery in Aug , something went wrong with my sense-of-taste whereby most foods tasted rancid or rotten to me. I was told it would go away after a few weeks. It didn't. Months went by. I lost to much weight, I became emaciated. I read someplace that zinc might help combat that. I found where it said it would take "a few weeks" to do the job. So, I took Zinc Caps 50 mg by Life Extension to mean 8 weeks, and posted that date to my calendar. I began noticing an improvement in my sense-of-taste 2 weeks before the deadline I'd placed on myself!
I had been taking a 30 mg dose, this time bumped it up to 50 mg dose, and hoping for even more improvement. Something about finally having some real hope of getting rid of this problem has boosted my morale greatly!
It and calcium might interfere with each other. I have to take calcium and D3 to combat a thinning hipbone. So I have to space the zinc and the calcium at least 4 hours apart from each other. I have to keep track of the times on a calendar, but I quickly got used to doing that - and with the improvement in my sense-of-taste, I have to say it has been well worth the bother.
