isit bad to take 100mg of ZINC?

Recommended Posts

i have 50mg Zinc supplments and i have been doing them everynight with a meal missed a couple nights eh. but i have seen mild improvment. i dont kno it its still purging. or should i just take 2 at night to see better results? i read up on it and it says not to take more then 150mg a day. but recommended 30mg a day.

what should i do?

From everything I have read it is okay to take dosage upto about 100mg a day. If you are planning on taking a dosage that high for a long period it is vital that you also supplement with 2-5mg of copper daily to prevent an artificial copper deficiency from forming, which can have serious side effects.

Even though there are at least a couple of studies that seem to show that zinc levels that high can reduce sebum protection, I don't think it's reasonable to take that much. I'd stick to an "insurance" type of dosage no more than about 15-30 mg/day.
