142: How much time should separate my zinc supplements and nut consumption?

Masterjohn Q&A Files Episode 142

Introduction

Question: How much time should separate my zinc supplements and nut consumption?

So, phytate primarily inhibits absorption of zinc and iron. I think you're gonna have a much lower probability of zinc encountering phytate if you take the zinc 2 hours after eating the phytate than if you take the zinc while you eat the phytate. But you know, if you're trying to be maximally conscientious, 3 hours after the meal.
