    I've noticed recently that when I take zinc I get some pain in wrist or finger joints. It usually passes in about an hour. Is this a lack of copper?

    You're probably low on estrogens. Too much aromatase inhibition is not good ...

    I had this effect from proviron, aromasin.(also hairloss) It passed with the help of some estrogenic herbal teas and foods. Libido is returning to normal again.

    Is zinc really that powerful an aromatase inhibitor?

    Simpler explanation might be that its boosting your immune system and what you are feeling is a bit of die-off.

    I always wonder why increased androgens can lead to sore joints? Besides the effect it has against estrogen... In my mind, perhaps it's having an opposing effect on some sort of mycobacteria/stealth infection that buries itself deeply in your joints to feed off of hyaluronic acid (and other GAG's) which then begins to die due to some sort of effect that the increased positive flow of androgens has against it/them...thus leading to joint pain. Only speculation, I could be wrong.

    Anyway, perhaps increase boron intake with zinc for slight joint support and add in some chlorophyllin for an easy to use form of copper which lowers body odors and aflatoxins overall.

    No, it is not. You need a fairly high dose for that and repeated doses.
    That does not mean it can't be in certain condition like probably very weak rebound of aromatase enzyme activity and eliminating of other factors, like elimination of stress that can rise aromatise enzyme.

    Why do you take Zinc?

    I'm not anymore. I was taking it because it improved my sleep. I'm getting better results now from focussing on my liver. Coffee and less fat.
