Zinc Supplement Daily Intake

2 posts in this topic

Dear all,

I have been consuming 25 mg Zinc Gluconate daily for around 2 months now.

It definitely does a little help to my mild acne, usually closed comedones.

But I want to know what is a recommended amount? I am 21 this year standing at a 4ft11 , how much of zinc is the appropriate amount I should take?

Please advise, thank you. :)

I believe the daily recommendation is 50 mg. Zinc supplementation can lead to a copper deficiency so it is best to have a formula that includes that. I use an awesome one by Trace Minerals. I find it at my local Wholefoods and online at various places. I take half in the am and half dose before bed. Make sure to not take it on an empty stomach as it can cause nasaue, or you may have already figured that out ;)
