Zinc Supplements?
      #254499 - 02/23/11 02:11 PM

"I read that taking zinc has been proven to make the common cold last for a shorter time. Have you heard about this? What else does zinc do? Is zinc good for the immune systems of HIV-positive people?"
nelson vergel's response

personally, i like zinc supplements. like nelson says, zinc helps your immune system and is very important for testosterone production.

Thanks for the info on Zinc. Funny thing is my aunt just mentioned taking it do to the fact hubby and I are both fighting colds. But I'm sure it would be really good in general for my system due to the meds depleting my system.

I completely agree n this basically zinc has its own importance and is a useful substances especially for males.
It should be taken on daily basis in an appropriate amount that is necessary.
