    Hi, everyone-

    Zinc makes me nauseaus, even if I take it with food. Anybody else have this problem? Any way to make the tummy handle it better?

    Thanks :eek:)

    Hi Chrissy,

    Sorry to hear you are having trouble with zinc.I once had trouble with a zinc supplement my doctor gave me as it was full of colouring and other gung plus in the form of zinc sulphate which is not the most easily absorbed/effective kind of zinc to take.

    Zinc supplements come in different forms, I think zinc citrate is meant to be the most readily absobed and effective plus look for one with as few additives as possible, you'll get zinc citrate from ProHealth here on immunesupport.

    Whatever I hope you find something that agrees with you,
