    What does you dosage and timing look like? Thanks for your input.

    Off topic, nonetheless. What is the optimum amount of zinc for testosterone production?

    It's probably More so based on what type of zinc before an answer can be given I would imagine

    I don't have a finite answer for you, and I won't advise X amount of zinc supplementation simply for testosterone production

    mineral balance is a crucial component of hormonal function, as well as many other functions in the body..

    IMO, while I do not minimize the importance of zinc for T production, I rather look at the bigger picture ie, zinc being important mineral for insulin function and the fact that even a marginal deficiency has been shown to increase insulin resistance and to worsen glycemic control....combined with a deficiency in vitamin D, the two have been implicated in the development of type 1 diabetes and other autoimmune diseases such as crohn’s disease

    rather than advise X amount of zinc to supplement, I rather promote a diet heavy in zinc-rich foods
    if one chooses to supplement with zinc, preferred forms would be chelates such as zinc picolinate, monomethionine, gluconate and citrate for raising testosterone levels, as would a concurrent reduction (if applicable) in oversupplementation with copper, calcium and iron + a reduction in high fiber dietary consumption

    mineral balance can only be tested professionally, but I would encourage anyone to check this if they think they have a problem in this area, rather than self-diagnose and attempt to "fix" on their own

    You do realize that one of your links was to an M.D. whoring their own supplements right? And I don't believe that SNS sells a vitamin D supplement. Also, M.D.'s get their info from published studies, many much older than ones from 2007.

    Cool thread

    996-nice contributions-thank u

    I am not certain what what my conclusion is just yet on vitamin D3 supplementation but I for one appreciate the contrarian position conveyed here!

    As I admit I am one who simply added this to my arsenal w/o much thought based on all the proposed litany of benefits.

    Time to get my read on.

    morning, pre workout, pre bed....seems like the most popular ways ppl take it, really depends on what your using it for

    a lot of ppl take it for the pumps, it doesn't give me the best pumps, plus my preworkout stack of hemavol and conquer has enough agamtine, so i'll use my bulk powder or pills prebed, doesn't get me hypo like taking a gda pre bed would

    What dose you use and when do you take it (with food or no food)?

    I have found this specific to protocol to be more effective than taking caber or prami and it goes as such:
    as soon as you wake up take 1 cap on an empty stomach and do not eat for at least 45 minutes. Take another cap afternoon or preworkout on a training day, and 1 cap before bed on an empty stomach, the results have been substantial for me, I have gained at least 10 lbs no fat, 9-9.5 lbs of glycogen and .5-1lbs of muscle, I am leaner than ever, and hornier than ever, and straight up feel epic lol.

    you could but it depends how you react to it, i get calm energy since body has a very low stress response but i get clean energy. I can still take it before bed, some days with or without i get insomnia so to me its effect before bed are irrelevant.
