I'm looking for a slight testosterone boost, and heard that zinc might do the trick. I've done some research and beleive Optizinc (monomethionine) or Zinc Picolinate are the best options. However, I am not sure which one is better. Has anyone had experiences with both and preferred one over the other? Thanks for any replies
why not just use both?
if one truly is better than the other, in what way would that make sense?
that being said, i believe Biotest uses monomethionine and aspartate in their ZMA product
Do you supplement with zinc? Do you then have take take any other vitamins or minerals to prevent the zinc supplement from throwing off any other balances?
I think any chelated zinc is good to go.
I do take some copper, but not every time. Copper I believe is the only potential deficiency that can arise from excess zinc. I actually take zinc l-carnosine for a particular health concern -- h pylori bacterial infection. I just cycle a bottle here and there (along with others) if I am noticing any issue with my upper GI.
Thats what I've always thought too. I remember something about chelating the zinc to an amino acid increases bioavailability to around 90%, whereas zinc oxide is around 2%. I dont remember anyone ever saying one amino acid is better than another
