Is zinc supplement safe?

Routine zinc supplementation is not recommended without the advice of a healthcare professional. In some people, zinc might cause nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, metallic taste, kidney and stomach damage, and other side effects. Zinc is POSSIBLY SAFE when taking by mouth in doses greater than 40 mg daily.

What is the difference between zinc picolinate and zinc gluconate?

Zinc picolinate is a chelated supplement in which the mineral is bound to picolinic acid. Your body normally produces picolinic acid from the amino acid tryptophan and uses it to chelate several minerals. Zinc sulfate is not chelated, so it's not absorbed as well as zinc picolinate.
