    Hi RustyJ, according to the article the research shows that zinc is needed for something called long term potentiation. IIRC this is important because it helps keep two neurons active for a long enough time that they can build the connection between them - I hope I am right but its been a decade and a half since I researched this area. Bye, Alex

    Many PWME have low zinc levels, so it could be a useful addition to the truckload of vitamins people are already taking. I am taking it as part of Fredd's protocol. I had a bad reaction to it so had to titrate up.

    I had trouble with zinc too, and have had to go very slowly. Was getting majorly dizzy from much lower doses than is supposed to cause that. I wonder if that's common for us...
