    A cheap way for you to determine zinc status is the zinc taste test. You can get a zinc tester called Zinc Status by Ethical Nutrients. It's about $12-24 and sold at most health food stores. It's cheaper online though. It is a liquid zinc sulfate supplement.

    Zinc deficiency will affect your sense of taste. If you taste nothing after 10 seconds, you need more zinc in your diet. Increase your zinc slowly and test again after a week or two.

    -No flavour or "like water" = typical zinc deficiency
    - No flavour to begin with, but later a reaction occurs described as either "dry", "fluffy","mineral", "like baking powder" or "sweet" = zinc deficiency
    - A strong but not necessarily unpleasant flavour is registered immediately and builds up little by little = no zinc deficiency.
    - An unpleasant flavour is registered immediately. The test person makes a wry face and wants to rinse his mouth with water = no zinc deficiency, good zinc status

    You can find more information in this link. The test should prevent you from wasting your money on zinc, if your status is good. If you need to take high amounts of zinc, you may want to see a doctor to do some bloodwork.

    according to wiki
    The proportion of ingredients generally used in products is 20-30 mg Zinc, 400-500 mg Magnesium and ~10mg B6.

    Look at another place and get the ZMA its much more easier to just take a ZMA. Just to let you know, ZMA's are totally pointless.

    One more thing. Don't take zinc with calcium, since zinc and calcium compete against each other for absorption. Try to take it twice a day instead of all in one dose to keep your zinc levels steady.
