it would be very interesting to see more science specifically on nutrient status and risk of infection w/ c.pn. to date it's still a bit of a stretch trying to piece that specific one together but more generally there is plenty of research re nutrient status impacts on bacterial and viral infection. i think it's all fascinating
re the menstrual reasons, just out of curiosity do you mean cramping or..? how much zinc did you typically take per day? were you using any magnesium?
not good news about the dosing story is it.
sadly i lean toward its being another case of govt in industry's back pocket.
we don't have Holland and barratt in Canada, i only know about it in the first place from UK TiMS members. you know i just imported one jar of Nordic berries into the UK via iherb, and had to pay import duty, PLUS the shipping company then doubled that extra cost for 'handling', and it was all because i went over the limit of just L15 >:( grrr
fyi sample link for revital - https://www.revital.co.uk/-Zinc__Copper_AAC
- perfect dosage on that one, 50mg zinc and 2mg copper.
my approach: no meds so far - just nutrient-dense anti-inflammatory whole foods, and supplements where needed
