    I know Poliquin is a little out there (if not a lot), but has anyone else heard anything similar to this? I thought it was somewhat interesting, in the way many of his odd articles are.

    I don't know anything about the effects of zinc on man-boobs, but I'm interested if anybody has had any noticeable effects from taking zinc.

    Also, what is DIM?

    Your body can't produce testosterone without zinc.

    Just remembered this thread, figured I'd bring it up to see if anyone else thought it was interesting and preferably had some input.

    i supplement with zinc at night (zma) as well as a zinc supplement with a whole food meal in the afternoon. its one of those things i know helps, but its not anything you could A/B and see a performance increase. its cheap, and its one of the most common deficiencies in athletes. i also try to increase my natural zinc consumption by eating pumpkin seeds as well. good fats, and a good amount of zinc as well. its no miracle supplement, but it would be ignorant to not make sure you have an adequate amount, be it from food or other sources.


    anyone know any other foods that have a good amount of naturally occuring zinc?
