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

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.

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.
doing my own thang!
