I was having persistant diarrhea for a week and researched that in developed countries, they would give zinc to children so that they don't die from the diarrhea.
I tried zinc gluconate 50mg and it stopped my diarrhea. Apparently zinc deficiencies make diarrhea worse.
Hi, I could not find any feedback about Zinc supplements on the Ailments link or the Supplements link. Anyone have fantastic results with it? It seems to be great for my oral health...my gums have stopped bleeding. Been taking one 50 mg tab for two months now.

hi, I've been reading on Earthclinic.com that zinc supplements can help with acne but there's so many kinds of zinc!
i narrowed it down to either zinc picolinate or gluconate.............. So may I ask which one is more readily absorbed by the body and hence, more effective for acne ?

I have purchased zinc chloride. You have stated that I use zinc chloride as a 5% solution. How do I go about this? What do you mean by 5% concentration? Should I use a teaspoon, tablespoon or what other measurement to do a 5% solution. Should I take it with water or what? I don't know how to go about a 5% solution? Could you help me in my inquiry? Thank you in this matter.

The only zinc our health food store carries is zinc citrate.... What is the difference in the zinc you recommend and zinc citrate? is it worth the $$ and effort to take citrate? will I see any improvement taking citrate or shoud I try to find the other kinds?
When I take Zinc with food it makes my stomach feel weird, like nausea. Does anyone know how to make this go away? Or has it happened to you? I drank milk and it kind of stopped.
