    Zinc and Libido

    Hi, I have seen a lot of people take zing while on TRT, it is reported in many sites as helping with sex drive, natural estrogen control through mild aromatization blocking, etc. It is also found in oysters and stuff which are known for their aphrodisiacs effects. BUT It apparently inhibits...

    CalMagZinc supplements anyone?

    I take magnesium and zinc at night for sleep and they work. I feel I have more energy the next day as well. It thought it would be easier to take the two in one supplement.

    Zinc supplementation

    I notice a huge difference sexually when I start taking a 50mg of zinc supplement. Even from the first dose. But I'm left wondering if there is any negative effects while on TRT. Like does it raise DHT? or is it a common suggested supplement to take? Any thoughts, info? Thanks

    In my first post I stated that my estadiol was less than 5 and my T was 502. I have been taking a zinc supplement faithfully for years, 25 to 50mg per day. Does anyone think that this is what could have pushed my estradiol so low by blocking the conversion of T to estroge ? Also as I have...
