Whenever it's time to take zinc, I take half a tablet. (I have a pill cutter.)
I take this whenever I take zinc.
I take one 1000 IU softgel at breakfast and another at supper. Makes my legs feel better.
Magnesium supposedly helps the body use vitamin D, so I take it every day.
I take one capsule every day.

I am not a doctor and I am not giving out medical advice. You could be allergic to the supplements mentioned on this page or have some other strange reaction to them. If you think you might want to take these supplements, ask your doctor first. Some people commenting under various zinc supplements at Amazon complain about vomiting. I wonder if they're allergic or taking supplements on an empty stomach? My sister and I always take supplements with food. Most of our supplements are taken at breakfast and supper.
Thanks to the information posted by Dr. Zev Zelenko at Twitter, I have been taking half of a Rugby Zinc Sulfate 220 mg (#ad) tablet (using a pill cutter (#ad)) and a NOW Foods Quercetin (#ad) capsule once a day since summer of 2020. My sister also takes them. She works at a mall, so she's constantly around other people. My sister and I also take other supplements such as Andrew Lessman Vitamin C Capsules (#ad), Jarrow Vitamin D3 5000 IU (#ad), and FarmHaven Magnesium (#ad).
A Note From DAH on January 24, 2022
Since my sister already had the rona, we started taking half a zinc tablet twice a week around January 20, 2022 to help avoid getting too much. We still take quercetin every day and our daily vitamin has some zinc in it. Too much zinc can interfere with copper absorption according to various sources on the Internet. We might eventually drop to half a tablet once a week.
The article Can You Boost Your Resistance to COVID-19? has this to say about quercetin:
Quercetin is a plant compound called a flavonoid. This compound is a “zinc ionophore”—it opens a special “door” or “gate” in the cell membrane so that zinc can get into the cells. This may help boost your resistance to the SARS-CoV-2 virus at the cellular level, although that is still unproven.
Dr. Zev Zelenko has what he calls the Zelenko Protocol:
Quercetin 500mg one or two a day
Zinc 25mg (elemental) once a day
Ask your doctor before taking and if appropriate for your unique situation.
Adapted version of what Dr. Zev Zelenko tweeted on August 16, 2020:
Our government does not want us to treat COVID-19 early. If I get COVID-19 and no HCQ access—I would IMMEDIATELY take quercetin 500mg three times a day for 7 days, elemental zinc 50mg one a day for 7 days, and z-pack. Every American home should have quercetin and zinc.
Quercetin and zinc are over the counter and are available without a prescription.
Adapted version of what Dr. Zev Zelenko also tweeted on August 16, 2020:
Our government is failing us. We must take care of ourselves and each other. High risk patients should consider taking prophylaxis against covid: Quercetin 500mg once a day; elemental zinc 25mg once a day; vitamin c 1000mg once a day. May prevent influenza also.
Quercetin, zinc, and vitamin C are available without a prescription.

Easiest way: search Amazon for: zinc sulfate 220mg tablets, each pill has 50mg of elemental zinc because zinc sulfate is 23% elemental zinc. Cut tablet in 1/2 to take 25mg of elemental zinc.
Adapted version of what Dr. Zev Zelenko tweeted on August 18, 2020:
Another potent OTC zinc ionophore is Epigallocatechin Gallate (EGCG), which is a green tea extract. Recommend EGCG 400mg a day with zinc 25mg a day for prevention.
Adapted version of what Dr. Zev Zelenko also tweeted on August 18, 2020:
In sum—HCQ works the best for prophylaxis and treatment. But, it has been demonized and is hard to get. Thus, second choice is quercetin—there is good data on it and I have used it with great results. Third choice is EGCG. I have no experience with it, but it most likely works.

Some people appear to have a mental illness because they have a vitamin B deficiency. For example, the wife of a guy I used to chat with online had severe mood swings which seemed to be caused by food allergies or intolerances. She would became irrational, obnoxious, throw tantrums, and generally act like she had a mental illness. The horrid behavior stopped after she started taking a vitamin B complex. I've been taking Jarrow B-Right (#ad) for many years. It makes me much easier to live with.
Unfermented soy is bad! “When she stopped eating soy, the mental problems went away.” Fermented soy doesn't bother me, but the various versions of unfermented soy (soy flour, soybean oil, and so on) that are used in all kinds of products these days causes a negative mental health reaction in me that a vitamin B complex can't tame. The sinister encroachment of soy has made the careful reading of ingredients a necessity.
If you are overweight, have type II diabetes, or are worried about the condition of your heart, check out the videos by William Davis and Ivor Cummins. It seems that most people should avoid wheat, not just those who have a wheat allergy or celiac disease. Check out these books: Undoctored (#ad), Wheat Belly (#ad), and Eat Rich, Live Long (#ad).
Negative ions are good for us. You might want to avoid positive ion generators and ozone generators. Whenever I need a new air cleaner (with negative ion generator), I buy it from surroundair.com. A plain old air cleaner is better than nothing, but one that produces negative ions makes the air in a room fresher and easier for me to breathe. It also helps to brighten my mood.
Never litter. Toss it in the trash or take it home. Do not throw it on the ground. Also remember that good people clean up after themselves at home, out in public, at a campsite and so on. Leave it better than you found it.
Seems like more people than ever finally care about water, land, and air pollution, but the climate change cash grab scam is designed to put more of your money into the bank accounts of greedy politicians. Those power-hungry schemers try to trick us with bad data and lies about overpopulation while pretending to be caring do-gooders. Trying to eliminate pollution is a good thing, but the carbon footprint of the average law-abiding human right now is actually making the planet greener instead of killing it.
