Zinc, on empty stomach

I will probably never take zinc on an empty stomach again. I just did and puked my *** off. Not fun.

Re: Zinc, on empty stomach

Don't EVER take vitamins/supplements on an empty stomach. I learned my lesson once a few years ago when I took a multi-vitamin on an empty stomach and had the same result as you had. UGH! Now, I always make sure to have some kind of food or snack with my vitamins.

Re: Zinc, on empty stomach

How much zinc are you guys taking? I've never thrown up from taking zinc, even on an empty stomach. however I always try to avoid that and make sure I eat something with my vitamins.

Re: Zinc, on empty stomach

I believe a post I read said that zinc is best absorbed on an empty stomach. Thats why I tried it. I took 50mgs zinc with 8mgs copper. <p>[This message has been edited by Bacne (edited 05-09-2001).]

Zinc on an empty stomach for me makes me blow lunch for half an hour. If I've eaten first--no problem.

Re: Zinc, on empty stomach

god, i've NEVER had a problem taking any supplement on an empty stomach! everybody's different i guess. but i have to ask: for all you who had stomach problems from zinc, what kind of zinc was it (e.g., gluconate, citrate, etc.), how much, and in tablet or capsule form? i take 25mg zinc gluconate tabs 2-3 times a day, usually between meals.<p>[This message has been edited by tommy jojo (edited 05-10-2001).]
