My doctor told me that women with PCOS have trouble absorbing zinc and that zinc supplements are crucial. She also ran my DNA and discovered that I have a genetic disposition to not being able to absorb zinc well, so I take zinc daily. The cool thing about zinc, is it helps your body absorb other key vitamins and minerals necessary for optimum health. And, if you are like me, and not able to process zinc well, then you also aren't absorbing the other things well. And, zinc is a necessary mineral that your body needs. Find some articles on zinc's purpose and crucial role in the body, that may help convince him you need it.

I take zinc when I feel a cold coming on. Its always been helpful in shortening the duration. I never knew more about it I think I'll start taking it more regularly!
