Too Much Zinc Causes Low Libido?


For nearly four months I have taken zinc (25mg tablet) one day on, one day off, with some extra days off. I have noticed that it has lowered my libido since a couple of weeks. I am sure this is the cause. What should I do?

Are you male or female?


I take one 50mg tablet of zinc each evening before bed…and I can assure you that I have no drop in libido. That lady is still coming up with new ways to say ‘No’ after nearly 5 years.

I’d look for a cause other than the zinc…

Not really.
I actually noticed then when I take zinc I cum like a fountain.

Stop taking zinc.

What do I win?

I thought the answer was to quadruple the dose.
