I'd say someone should definitely be supplementing some zinc picolinate on top of it if they ever want to get somewhere.
Yeah, I only find the liquid sulfate solution to be useful for testing.

I had been following the Lights Out recommendation (150mg with meals taken at home... 10-12 doses a week total). Since I now grimace when taking the zinc sulfate liquid, I plan on moving down to 100mg a dose for a month or two and then retesting. I've been using the Source Naturals Zinc product.
