    Never have @Kesa27

    but look at this information:

    It looks as though too much could actually be harmful to our bones😮

    I take a vegan multivitamin which has zinc in it.

    I just take a multi-vitamin as I don't eat much fresh food.

    Hi Kesa27,

    I use it on a daily basis, unfortunately we don’t get enough Zinc from food, so I take as a supplement. I found the half moons on my fingernails have disappeared except my thumbs! So it must be making a difference ☺️

    I use Vimergy products sold only by aggressive health in the UK, as they don’t add any fillers or unnecessary chemicals.

    Best of luck with your research;)

    RA is immuno-suppressent. I supplement a careful diet with zinc 10mgs & vit D3 (if necessary discuss latter dose with Pharmacist).

    Good luck.
