zinc longterm

Recommended Posts

hi everyone!

ive been taking 50mg of zinc a day for a about 2 months along with a well rounded and healthy diet and this has pretty much cleared my acne. my question is: is is safe to be taking zinc supplements long term??? i am afraid that that if i stop my acne will return. I know zinc causes copper deficiency and im trying to get good amount of cooper naturally in my diet, but is there other side affects or percautions i should be taking?

I would be taking a copper supplement when you are taking that much zinc, don't rely on diet just to be safe. Two months isn't too long and that amount of zinc isn't horrible, I wouldnt worry too much especially since you aren't going over 90=).
