"I had weight loss surgery 3 yrs ago and I have labs done on a regular basis to check my vitamin levels. My zinc came back slightly low at one point and a supplement was recommended. Vitacost was the only source that had a 15mg zinc available and the price is excellent. I credit "good genes" and a zinc supplement for allowing me to pass for 10-15 years younger than I am! Vitacost is my only source for vitamins & supplements and it was recommended by my surgeon."
