I think the verdict has come in that eating pounds of liver a day over and over might be dangerous to one's health, but what about oysters? I just read the nutrition data and apparently just the amount I had with breakfast (half a pound) had 225... (more)
In my quest to fix my leaky gut, I recently started supplementing with Zinc - 25 - 50 mg's a day. After a few days of doing this, I started experiencing severe stomach aches which lasted for a few days. Since then, I cut out the zinc and im... (more)
I have held off on supplementing zinc for a while because I would always feel like throwing up after taking it, so much so that I need to physically try hard to not throw up. I always take it with a meal. Today I decided to take it with my meal... (more)
Hi folks, just bought this zinc supplement: http://www.nowfoods.com/Supplements/Products-by-Category/Minerals/Zinc/M003538.htm here's the problem: the page says it contains 50mg zinc as zinc gluconate. But zinc gluconate only comprises 7mg... (more)
I don't actually sweat overly much, but I do have what I would characterize as evil underarms that overcome whatever deodorant I apply. This slays me because my mother and father don't really need to use deodorant at all (like roses!), and when... (more)
Hey gang Upon reading how healthy cocoa is and dark choclate...i have been eating half a bar of 85% cocoa dark chocolate per day for a few months I think that this may have lowered my testosterone..it is the only change in diet I have made... (more)
It is probably not the soy, one of your ex's may have hired someone to curse you, Voodoo is particularly effective for this purpose. Did any of them take hair clippings from you, or toenail clippings?
I've tried everything. I take zinc, it helps, but my chin still breaks out. HELP I've heard my hormones might be causing it, unbalanced? I'm 25, male.
I see alot of info here about ways to LOWER DHT. But, DHT is the most powerful male hormone (much more than testosterone, and it cannot aromatize) and really increases sex drive and other desirable, confident male behavior. So, I want to know... (more)
Hi everyone, I've been lurking on this forum for several months, but this is the first time that I've posted anything. I'm hoping that some of the more biochemistry-literate PaleoHacks members can provide some help and advice regarding a somewhat... (more)
Can someone try to explain how multiple months on a Zinc Supplement may have cured my acne? I think it somehow restored my liver to optimal functioning. I was suffering from acne since my teens. 25 now.
I'm trying to determine potential causes for my moderate case of anemia, which has been affecting me for the past several months. I'm consuming large quantities of iron from natural sources, so the problem presumably has to do with absorption. I... (more)
It's worth trying to figure out. I became anemic when I was a vegan. Despite every effort to supplement properly, I didn't get sufficient B12 and iron. Mine was an easy fix. Your anemia is moderate, which is how I would describe mine. Let me... (more)
I'm going to start supplementing with zinc picolinate (http://www.iherb.com/Metabolic-Maintenance-Zinc-Picolinate-30-mg-100-Capsules/37577?at=0) due to symptoms of a zinc deficiency, and I was wondering when during the day it should be taken? I've... (more)
You should take it every other day and on the off days take a copper supplement (2-4mg copper gluconate). Zinc supplementation competes with copper for absorption and there is evidence from a few studies that it actually increases copper excretion... (more)
So I figured out a couple of weeks back that some symptoms I was having, such as skin problems, red cracked knuckles, diarrhea, dandruff, tiredness, no appetite, and a white spot on fingernail, was due to a copper/zinc imbalance. I was eating way... (more)
I know there have been other threads in which this has come up, but I've seen some conflicting answers. I've been experimenting with (re)introducing zinc supplementation. I took 30 mg of zinc a couple of hours ago (about an hour or two before... (more)
I do a zinc taste test to discover if a client is sufficient in zinc...they swish aqueous zinc for thirty seconds, and if it tastes disgusting, they don't need zinc, if there is no taste, or barely a taste, they are deficient. Doing this test... (more)
Hey, I'm supplementing with Vitamin D and Magnesium. I take the Mg in the morning fasting, and the D with lunch. I can't take Mg in the evening as it has the opposite effect on me to most people, i.e. it keeps me awake. I don't want to take it... (more)
Just don't take the zinc when you're eating meat because it will block most of the uptake of iron and copper. I take zinc early in the morning on an empty stomach, but doing so causes nausea for Erin, so it may be a bad idea. Taking zinc with a... (more)
Thanks to Travis & his recent (fabulous) posts on Zinc and hormones, I started putting two and two together and found this: http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/17289285 More details here in the original... (more)
No, I haven't tried it for cramps, but get this: Travis' post led me to read a bit more on zinc and I found some information saying that many migraine sufferers have low levels of magnesium (which I knew) and high levels of copper (which I didn't... (more)

This has always been an extra-interesting subject to me, since I have a history of disordered eating/low appetite along with anxiety and depression (but not a diagnosable 'eating disorder' since I have never felt I should lose weight or restricted... (more)
K-2 concentrates in the saliva in order to mineralize calcium in our teeth. Zinc supplementation increases salivary calcium levels: http://jdr.sagepub.com/content/84/1/35.short Weston Price treated caries with his high vitamin butter oil, which... (more)
Travis.....as a former dentist this is spot on based on things I have read. If I could upvote you more I would. I hope every dentist reads this......sadly few will. Plus one.
If i take vitamin a i heard i need vitamin d and same with iodine selenium and i heard magnesium and calcium. Is this all true and which others need to be balanced?
I never get nosebleeds. Maybe a few times when it's super dry in the winter, but it's not normal for me. And I've been on fish oil for 2 years with no problems. Started ZMA 2 nights ago, with the recommended dose of 3 caps before bed. Horrible... (more)
Hi, I'll give you a summary of my diet and supplements, I'd just like you to answer what could cause constipation. I ate (for the last couple of days, it's not really paleo as I'm slowly turning my diet into a paleo one, and I'm quite new to... (more)
So I have been getting Zits consistently forever. I am now 24 and kept telling myself it would go away as I got older. I did a session accutane when I was 22 and it kind of helped, but I still get it below my mouth around my chin. (Never got... (more)
