Zinc can create an iron deficiency (zinc can block iron absorption).

A symptom of an iron deficiency can be weak or brittle hair.

50mg twice a day is too much. 50mg can even be too much, especially if you take a daily vitamin, most have 15mg's of zinc in them. (I take 50mg a day and don't notice any brittle hair though)

The recommended amount is 11mg a day for a 19+ male.

Just curious though, do you ever get a metallic taste? I've heard zinc over dose gives a metallic taste in your mouth.

My hair seems to be thinning out and falling out a little when I shower...I thought it was just a phase but I'm thinking maybe it's this.

Can this be countered by taking more iron or is iron completely blocked out by too much Zinc? I've been taking 40mg a day for months now..I also drink Rooibos Tea daily which contains a bunch of Zinc too, not sure how many mg per cup. There's a good chance I've been taking too much per day though.. The symptoms only started the past few weeks so maybe it finally caught up and I'm lacking iron now. =\ Gonna start by lowering my daily dose by a lot and maybe finding some foods with iron.
