053: What to do if signs and symptoms of zinc deficiency persist despite taking 75 mg zinc gluconate per day.

Masterjohn Q&A Files Episode 53


You should do plasma zinc. 

Also you know I kind of wonder whether you're taking that right. So if you're taking 75 milligrams of zinc like at one time then it's not surprising because you're absorbing like seven of those milligrams. The rest you are not. 

To maximize absorption take them on an empty stomach in 10-15 mg which is typically the smallest dose available. 

If you're doing that and the signs, the deficiency persist they're persisting when you're taking that, then it probably isn’t zinc related.
