    Great website:

    Facts on Zinc
    I am Adam, Prince of Eternia, defender of the secrets of Castle Greyskull. This is Cringer, my fearless friend. Fabulous secret powers were revealed to me the day I held aloft my magic sword and said: "By the power of Greyskull, I have the power!" Cringer became the mighty Battle Cat, and I became He-Man, the most powerful man in the universe.

    Zinc toxicity has been seen in both acute and chronic forms. Intakes of 150 to 450 mg of zinc per day have been associated with low copper status, altered iron function, reduced immune function, and reduced levels of high-density lipoproteins (the good cholesterol) (34). One case report cited severe nausea and vomiting within 30 minutes after the person ingested four grams of zinc gluconate (570 mg elemental zinc) (35). In 2001 the National Academy of Sciences established tolerable upper levels (UL), the highest intake associated with no adverse health effects, for zinc for infants, children, and adults (2). The ULs do not apply to individuals who are receiving zinc for medical treatment, but it is important for such individuals to be under the care of a medical doctor who will monitor for adverse health effects. The 2001 Upper Levels for infants, children and adults are (2):

    It states that the upper levels should be in the 40mg area.

    If I had to vote, based on what I just read, I think 100mg of zinc is too much

    Cool

    Check out the graph that is 1/2 down the page...

    It talks and shows the "Upper Levels"

    I wouldn't make it a habit of consuming too much zinc...

    That's just me

    Good luck

    Unfortuantely, AnabolicPhyscho, I'm not too familiar with all the side-effects of zinc and how much is too much. I do know that I consume anywhere from 30-40mg a day, based on my multi-vitamins plus the foods I eat.

    I really do hope someone chimes in here as well as in the supplements forum with a better answer then what I can come up with.

    My only question is what is so magical about 100mg and how/what are you doing to get to it?
