Dear customer,

Thanks for your question.

Please ask your doctor about zinc supplementation. This may be beneficial in improving taste perception and treating taste disturbances, although the results from studies investigating the potential role of zinc in treating taste and smell disorders in people with cancer or kidney disease are mixed. Still its worth trying.

Take care.
