My Dentist has 13 years experience with HNC working at a VA hospital in Tucson. During my treatments he encouraged me to take 200 mg. of Zinc per day. He said, and I have found some supporting info on the Internet, that zinc helps taste buds to regenerate. He pushed it to many, many of his HNC patients at the VA and there was a significant difference between those that used it and those that did not.
Has anyone else heard of or tried Zinc supplements to accelerate taste recovery?
