A DIY test to see if you're zinc deficient
Quote:
The Zinc Assay Taste Test
To determine if you have sufficient zinc levels, you may take the Zinc Assay Taste Test. This is a simple taste test reported in the medical journal, The Lancet. If you have sufficient zinc levels, Zinc Assay will taste bitter. If you are deficient in zinc, Zinc Assay will taste like water.
More specifically...
1) Optimal zinc levels—An immediate, unpleasant, obviously adverse taste, at which the patient normally grimaces.
2) Adequate Zinc Levels—A definite but not strongly unpleasant taste is noted immediately and tends to intensify with time.
3) Quite Zinc Deficient—No taste noted initially, but develops in 10-15 seconds.
4) Very Zinc Deficient—Tasteless or "tastes like water".
