Candida overgrowth?


In Topic: Saw Palmetto For Oily Skin?

I was on saw palmetto for six months, and while I think it might have helped a bit, I also experienced some side effects. Huge loss of libido and breath that smelled like death -- neither which went unnoticed by my girlfriend. In the end the cons outweighed the pros and I decided to ditch it.

Here in Scandinavia milk plays a big part in our diets, and I used to drink anything from one to two liters daily. Just cutting milk was enough for me. I still eat things like cheese and butter, and fermented dairy products common here like skyr, viili and piimä.

Just out of curiosity; are all forms of zinc just as likely to make you feel sick?

Yeah I took zinc for a few weeks. A 50 mg pill twice a day. It made me feel sick after I took at even with a good sized meal. If I took it with no meal I would no doubt throw up. It actually seemed to make things a bit worse. I dont know if its because I was getting too much (I also have quite a healthy diet so maybe I was already getting enough through food sources, but hey when you got the acne you will try anything) or if the other supplements I was taking were somehow interfering with the zinc. All I know is im glad I stopped taking it. Fortunatly it was not that expensive.

100 mg sounds a lot. Zinc can be toxic in high doses, and copper deficiency has been reported in those taking 100 mg of zinc daily.

 

I take 30 mg daily every morning and it's enough to make me throw up unless I had a hearty enough breakfast.
