When Is The Best Time To Take Zinc Supplements


Zinc is one of the best supplements for maintaining healthy testosterone levels. Taking zinc can improve your overall health and well-being, but it’s important to find a time when you won’t be adversely affected by elevated cortisol levels (the stress hormone). If you take zinc at night, you may experience sleep loss or insomnia because cortisol will inhibit your ability to fall asleep—and that’s not good for anyone in terms of improving testosterone. I typically recommend taking zinc 30 minutes before exercise; however, if this is impossible, ensure that it doesn’t interfere with sleep. Also make sure to get plenty of rest and fluids during exercise as well. And remember: over-taking any supplement can lead to its own set of issues — so consult with a qualified healthcare professional prior to starting on any new supplements.
