zinc and copper?

Recommended Posts

last week I started taking 30mg of zinc a day and I plan on doing it for a long time. If I continue to take 30mg of zinc a day should I also take a copper suppliment so I dont become defficent in that?

"Most" people on the board say anything over 100 mg and you should take copper. I think it would be a good idea to take some copper from time to time, maybe 1-2 mg with the dosage of Zinc that you are taking (30mg). The thing to remember is that copper is basically a trace element and not a lot is needed. So again, 1-2mg of copper should be fine with the amount of Zinc that you are taking.

If you are only taking 30mg a day, you will probably get the copper you need just from your regular diet, i would bother with it.
