In this video, I talk about the 7 causes of a metallic taste in the mouth.

Nobody wants to taste metal in their mouth. So, what’s causing this metallic taste? There are a few different reasons you might be experiencing this. But, when you can pinpoint the cause, it will be easier to find a solution.

The biggest reason for experiencing a metallic taste in the mouth is a zinc deficiency. If you’re severely zinc deficient, you could actually lose all of your taste and smell.

But, if you have a marginal or subclinical deficiency of zinc, you may wind up with a metallic taste in your mouth. Some of these other causes like chemotherapy, certain medications, and pregnancy can also cause you to experience a zinc deficiency.

A metallic taste in the mouth is sometimes associated with pregnancy or pregnancy signs. This is because often if a woman is pregnant, and she isn’t eating the right foods, she is going to become deficient in certain things like zinc.

It’s very easy for a pregnant woman to become deficient if she’s not eating the right foods, or if she’s consuming too many carbohydrates or refined sugars. What she really needs to be consuming is a lot of seafood.

We’re going to dive into these 7 reasons why you may experience a metallic taste in your mouth:

1. Chemotherapy – All of the chemicals in the body
2. Medications – Especially antibiotics
3. Pregnancy
4. Synthetic Vitamins – I don’t recommend these except under certain circumstances
5. Heavy Metals From certain fish (shark, swordfish, marlin, and tuna), cookware, tap water
6. Pesticides – Consume organic food
7. Zinc Deficiency – The biggest reason for a metallic taste
