    Effectiveness: 1/10

    (-)  Gave Me An Upset Stomach,Painful cramping and diarrhea

    How did you use it?: Before Bed

    "I've only taken this the past 3 evenings (with food, as it recommends), but I've woken up all 3 mornings in pain and with diarrhea. I assumed it was something I ate until day 3. After some research about a zinc overdose causing these symptoms, I'm fairly confident this supplement is the culprit. I won't be trying it a 4th day to confirm. It does contain more than 100% of the RDI (25mg, compared to the needed 15mg), which seems pointless to me considering the possible side effects that can occur.

    My other issue with this product is actually with Vitamart's description. My husband and I are trying to conceive, and Vitamart's information states nothing about this supplement not being safe to take while pregnant/breastfeeding. The product, however, warns against it. I specifically purchased this (500 of them, stupidly) for support while pregnant, but between the issues I'm having while not pregnant, and not being able to take them anyway if I am, I'm very disappointed that I wasted $30."

    Would you buy this product again? No
