RE: Zinc has made me a better man.
Can you post the study you read? Do you take it with food or what? Do you break it up?

RE: Zinc has made me a better man.
It seems that this entire concept of increasing testosterone, whether it be from adjusting your diet, lifting, or abstaining from masturbation, is catching on and producing significant results.

I didn't read it in a study. I think I either read it on a ZMA supplement bottle or online somewhere.

RE: Zinc has made me a better man.
Does someone with a healthy diet under 30 need extra zinc? I read somewhere that taking upwards of 300mg a day decreases white blood cells and impairs immune function. Short term, probably not a huge deal but one 30mg capsule is supposedly the high limit recommended as a long term supplement.

RE: Zinc has made me a better man.
can't you just eat high zinc foods? oysters have an insane amount of zinc in them, you can also eat veal and a bunch of other foods.

RE: Zinc has made me a better man.
Midnight, is there a danger in overdosing on Zinc? Which brand are you using?
Please be specific, I am interested.
I went to a naturopath some years ago and they said my zinc levels were low.
Kosko, your garlic experimentation intrigues me. Now that I am in the dirty South, I can buy fresh garlic which is a lot more potent by the time it gets up North.
How do you combat the anti vampire breath? Once I experimented with fresh garlic and onions (RAW) and I went out for a pickup game.

Americans are cool, nobody said nothing but I noticed one guy sniff suspiciously.

Strangely or maybe not strangely enough, I was able to get to the hoop without problem on almost EVERY drive.

RE: Zinc has made me a better man.
Zinc gets into overdose zone past 3 GRAMS and you will be dead at 10 GRAMS. You generally need potent high doses way over the DV% to achieve results with supplements. Most ZMA formulas start at 300% DV% so a few hundred MGS will not hurt you.

@MOMA more on the Garlic later as I am pressed for time.

What type of zinc do you like? Also isn't it better to get it through food?

A high WBC count is not necessarily a good thing. A high WBC count is a marker of inflammation, which for me at least, is a source of a lot of health problems. If the count is reduced because of reduced inflammation, that can be good. It really depends on the details.

RE: Zinc has made me a better man.
Zinc is great for your entire body.

Mixing Maca Powder in with your shakes is great too.

http://www.clinicvitamins.com/medik-herb-maca-powder/

That's a legit product, and website, but you can probably find it in a health store, although it may be of lesser quality since they only sell "clinical-grade" supplements.

I bought that exact product from there and I feel like it has increased my test. levels, and most importantly, for me, I don't get muscle spasms after I workout now, properly hydrated or not.

After reading on article last week on how mega dosing zinc raised the testestone levels of athletes by 40% I started a little zinc experiment. Taking around 150- 200 mg of a zinc a day. One day I even took 250mg...

All I can say is WOW. What I have noticed in just the past week from this:

-Wake up with morning wood like I am 18 again.
Great indicator of good test levels.

-High libido

-Massive loads... peter north type cum shots....fucking ropes across the room type shit.

-My armpits don't smell anymore...long story short but between not using anti perspirant and eating paleo I started to get a real manly arm pit funk by the end of the day...thats gone. Thank god because I was about to give up the whole paleo thing thinking it was from eating to much meat.

- More energy....I just feel better.

-More strength...set a personal record for wide grip dead hang pull ups.

- This is the most interesting part of it all. I have been having a lot more girls smile at me in the streets, at work or wherever! I'm noticing a lot more positive indicators from the females...it's like they smell the testosterone on me. It is pretty crazy. Even had one girl look away while blushing and playing with her hair at the same time... I can just see/feel a different response from women when I look at them. Yesterday at a little music festival a friend of a friend who is a "lesbian" took a liking to me. After heavy kino and smiles got the number. Nice cute little spanish chic from the bronx with the fatty. Side note - I'm thinking she is not a lesbian at all and just sick of betas.

Has any one else tried supplementing with zinc and seen results? I was obviously deficient in zinc as are most the population but interested to see if anyone else had good results with zinc supplementation. I don't plan on doing this mega dose for more than four weeks. I am going to get my levels checked with a blood test and after the four weeks are done go back to about 50mg a day.

RE: Zinc has made me a better man.
Hm I currently take Maca, Horny Goat Weed, Multivitamin and Fish Oil. I've read/heard about zinc before and am still interested in maybe taking some. I don't think the Maca and the HGW are doing it for me... my buddy is taking them as well and he feels like an absolute animal (and he definitely changed).

I love women and I love talking with sexy ones, but my libido is definitely not as high as I want it to be and I know it. I don't want sex as much as my friends too for some reason, but when I see a cutie I get all happy lol. Maybe I need more zinc.

Interesting fact, some of the most sexually active countries consume lots of food containing zinc (lamb/pork/oysters/etc). Maybe it has something to do with it?

Also OP, the point about you getting more attention from girls is interesting because I go through phases where I feel as though women everywhere love me, but then I go through phases where I get no attention. I've always wondered if it was something I'm eating or something I'm doing. Could never get a finger on it sadly!

I just bought zinc pills yesterday. They say to take 1 pill (50mg) daily. So, you are taking 3-4x the prescribed amount? No side effects?

spread out through the day...usually every four hours...down to 50 mg before bed now....still going strong...just started flax seed oil two days ago as well...2-4 tablespoons a day....feel real good from it. Don't think fish oil was doing the job.

No side effects. I toned it down now though to 50 mg a day. I may do 100 mg a day if I have a lot of sex.

Yeah, I have used maca and like it. Now I take an overall mens capsule that has it in it. And I switched from fish oil to organic flax seed oil and notice a big difference in over well being and erection quality.



Also selenium is big for us men. 3-4 brazil nuts twice a day do the trick. But it does depend where the brazil nuts were grown. Some soil has ALOT of selenium in it...others not as much...and there can be as much as 300% the daily value of selenium in just 1 oz of brazil nuts...so don't od on them.

In my supplement book it says no more than 100mg a day long term. So I did not plan on doing the 200-250mg for longer than two weeks. And I spread it out through the day.

RE: Zinc has made me a better man.
You can get selenium easily from eggs I believe 2 or 3 will give you your daily requirements. Sardines have a lot of Selenium also.

For Zinc I crushed back 600mg yesterday and I am still alive.....

Fats has helped the stomach issues and now I am back to taking it with food. I take my Zinc half way through my meals with my fish oil caplets and at times just with the Fish oil caplets with no food to compare.... no stomach issues.
