    Question When is the best time to take Zinc Supplement?

    Hello. I am totally newibie in terms of supplementary stuffs.

    I currently use Anavite multivitamin (by Gaspari Nutrition) which has 15 mg zinc in it. I take it with my breakfast and dinner.

    So today I bought a Zinc (as Zinc Gluconate) 30 mg (by GNC).

    My question is when should I take it?

    I did searched. but those results confused me. they say before food, after food, between food, before sleep, bla bla bla.


    Thank you!

    You will be getting plenty of zinc with your Anavite, and not to mention the foods you eat will contain zinc - and even if the foods you eat during the day only contain a minimal amount of zinc at the end of the day you will likely to have still have a decent daily intake of it alongside your Anavite.

    Too much zinc can toxic, it's not like a water soluble vitamin which can be simply excreted/passed out.
    I personally wouldn't recommend supplementing above 30mg zinc, because even then you will likely be getting more mg's through the real foods you eat - possibly having you up at around the 40mg+ mark - which is most probably bordering on the upper tolerable limit.

    As everyone else has said in this thread, as long as you take the zinc it will be uptaken by the body.
    Consistency is the key

    Zinc won't do much to boost your testosterone if you are already getting in adequate amounts, even if you are deficient it most probably won't provide much of a noticable effect through any possible increase in testosterone.

    Good idea, anavite and a good, well rounded diet should provide you with all the zinc you need.

    wow was I all wrong then about zinc. I've always had a small bottle of it around and from some ol remedy folk lure, everytime I was starting to feel sick or get a sore throat, I took a tablet and I was better by evening. I rarely get sick, maybe once every 2 years if that

    You can take it any time. Timing doesn't matter.
