ZINC: HOW MUCH


Welcome to the EliteFitness.com Bodybuilding Site! Please join this discussion about ZINC: HOW MUCH within the Diet & Bodybuilding category.

Excerpt: Thanks to Agent Shagwell for the post on Zinc supplementation. Gonna give it a try: Question is: how much mg per day? Pills come in 15 mg usually, is this enough? And is it good to take with VIT C? ------------------ The human form is a monument to courage and dedication built on the foundation of strength.

    taking with vitamin C is fine. If you don't eat alot of red meat or WHOLE eggs then go more 30-45 mg a day. remember intensely trained atheletes (you, me) need much more zinc. beware megadoses of all vitamins/minerals yet zinc is lost during exercise

    30-45 mg spaced out throughout the day, or in separate servings?
    Also I saw the Zinc Gluco and Zinc Picolinate out there. Picolinate is more expensive and supposed to be better absorbed. What do you all think?!?

    I PERSONALLY think alot of people get carried away with over supplementing with multi-vits and zinc. Alot of Supplement shakes contain these now, so you dont need much.

    I take a multi-vit in the morning along with a Probiotic pil, 15mg zinc in the afternoon and thats it.

    I dont see the need for anymore.

    Eat more veggies and some fruit, then you wont need it, artificial is always a poorer alternative.

    You liver is getting caned by the protein diet your on, it doesnt need the added burden of over supplementing with artificial vitamins and minerals.

    A person should not consume more than 50grams of Zinc in a 24 hour day.
