    Says intake of more than 50 mg a day can be harmful. 50 mg is my supplement. Guess I'd better dial that back a bit.

    Yeah, I split my 50mg tablets, so that I just get 25mg. I think the food I eat, plus some of my other supplements give me the rest of the Zinc I need.

    I love you, zinc! *hugs zinc*

    My amatureish advice to anyone with depression issues would be to simply get all of the nutrients that the body NEEDS to run properly. Or else shit will break. I can't believe it has gotten to this point where people are so malnourished, we're the most affluent generation in the history of the world. Yet another reason to eat tons of beef. I take 20mg on top of that just because I think it helps.
    Stabbing conventional wisdom in its face.

    Anyone who wants to talk nutrition should PM me!

    Thanks for the link SS. I also use 50mg but only every other day, and sometimes twice a week.

    I love zinc too. Along with D and incredibly high dose fish oil, zinc saved my life.

    Virtual hugs to Cillakat for recommending early in my pregnancy to take Zn. I've been taking 30mg of Zn along with my fish oil, vit D and prenatal.

    I take on every other day......and my multi has 15 mg zinc. Not everyone needs it.

    I'd track zinc intake via diet and look for symptoms indicating the need for more zinc.

    My girlfriend just embarked on the primal journey with me and it hasn't been a long time. As of now she primarily eats poultry and fish with red meat eaten sparingly, she loves her Wurst, lol ( those Germans ). What symptoms should I look out for. Besides zinc I am also starting her with brewers yeast, magnesium, krill oil, probiotics, vitamin d3/k2, R-Ala/ALC, NAC etc..
