    Ooooh, I like this! Some GOOD news!

    Edit : And I've been looking for my DHEA and zinc and can't find them anywhere. Our house has at least two black holes!

    The most impressive thing about Zinc I read so far is this
    Not to mention its role in bone/joint health, lowering ammonia/acetaldehyde, possible prevention of pancreatitis/pancreas cancer etc
    I think it can vary a lot from person to person... I tried Zinc chelated, Zinc picolinate and Zinc citrate, the latter is my favorite so far. Picolinate IME should be taken in very low doses (below five mg) because I suspect picolinate makes it to be very rapidly absorbed, and picolinate is derived from Tryptophan, I don't think we want much of that around in our bodies causing anxiety... Also Zinc is a pro-coagulant, so the citrate balances that out nicely. I want to try Zinc Sulfate for joint health.
    Some forms of Zinc are mentioned here for specific symptoms.

    A couple of years ago I started looking into the importance of zinc and was surprised at how vital it was for so many things. I take liquid zinc sulfate pretty regularly. At the first signs of a sore throat .........or signs of a cold I increase my dosage ALOT and it has really helped.............I've been able to stop a cold in it's tracks.

    I take zinc for Pyroluria and know it has immune action properties. I can't take the picolinate but can take the citrate. I am not sure I take enough. I take 60 mg, but it brought down my copper number!

    That's what I'm afraid of, bringing down copper, maybe zinc one day and copper the next?

    I'm not sure about this but 2-3 years ago I only had about 10-20 gray hairs and my chiro couldn't believe it ('cause I'm old) and said that my zinc and copper must be in balance. I think it can probably have to do with genetics, too.

    @Gondwanaland , you came through for me again, I've been thinking about zinc for me and Hubs because 1.he's a man and everything indicates it would be good and 2. I'm getting a few more gray hairs, so maybe some copper with it.
