I take 30mg of zinc a day... I can't find any info on if I can take it all at once or if I should divide the dose throughout the day. Anybody knows ?

Why not read the instructions on the bottle?

should not matter whether you divid it or not as long as you do not take it with any high fiber foods

Oh ? I did not know that. What does it do if taken with high fiber food ? Is it only canceled or does it make a bad interaction ? I have in fact taken it so far with high fiber foods, in the morning with the cereals... :wall: an hour before the coffee though as I know this interaction cancels the zinc.

Is zinc the only supplement that should not be taken with fiber ? I you know of a link where I could find a chart of interactions or method for taking supplements that would be greatly appreciated.

I posted this on the other forum but for best absorption, zinc supplements should not be taken at the same time as high-fiber foods.

I do not want to get to complex here but basically the high fibre and phytic acid contents of grain foods reduce the uptake from the gut (bioavailability) of zinc.

I just take my 50 mg pill before bed with a good sized meal so I don't feel sick.
