    How much Zinc should I take per day?

    I've seen all sorts of numbers. I'm 23, 6ft 185lbs. Work out 3 days a week....if any of that matters.

    I started taking 30-60mg a while ago and eventually 100mg every day through supplements. Then someone started talking to me about how bad too much zinc could be and now I am taking 50mg a day. I have loved what zinc has done for me. Idk if it increased my performance at the gym or not but my sex drive went through the roof and acne is almost completely gone. I am worried that I may still be taking too much. But I don't want to lose these great benefits.

    I don't recall what all foods are high in it. I think I heard seafood is....which I never eat. And beef, which I eat sometimes. And milk, which I drink all the time.

    So how much zinc should I take a day?

    Most recommend 50mg zinc with 2mg copper as a natural AI. This is the dosage I am currently taking every morning.

    Take into consideration the bioavailability of the zinc supplements you mention, not all is created equal.
    As I said before, I never repeat myself.

Following the Linus Pauling Institute recommendation to take a multivitamin/mineral supplement containing 100% of the daily values (DV) of most nutrients will generally provide 15 mg/day of zinc.
