Zinc With Copper - And Iodine?

3 posts in this topic

So I've been taking straight up Zinc (50mg/day) for about a week, but the tablet form was kind of chalky and tablets don't digest as well as capsules, so I bought a different brand today. It's Zinc Copper from Solaray, and it's 50mg Zinc, 2mg Copper, and 53 mcg Iodine (as kelp). I know that copper works well with zinc, since zinc can cause a copper defeciency, but what about the Iodine? Does anyone know the use of the iodine, and will it have any effect on my skin? Thanks!
