You need to take at least some copper if you regularly take zinc.

Is it REALLY important to take copper at a different time of day than taking your zinc?

So you take a generic 50mg zinc pill per day WITH food.

Why with food?

That sounds reasonable.

I'm wondering what mg pills I should buy this time around. Time to re-order.

I take WITH food or the Zinc will upset my stomach. I'm not certain why, but I think that's a common side effect.

I take 50 mg's as that's the most common dosage (at least from what I've seen).

Dr. Mercola zinc sulfate. 30 mg per day. Sometimes take raw zinc...vitamin code brand. Also 30 mg. One or the other...I switch back and forth. 30 mg per day should be sufficient.

You should look up the daily recommended
requirement for zinc and copper. I know you can
too much zinc if not careful.
I think copper is also good for bone health.
A really good multivitamin might be the best
way to get you body healthy. Then as time goes by you can add what you may need more of depending on your age.

I read that you shouldn’t take over 40 mg a day. It can cause some bad side effects. I was taking 50, but now I’m switching to 30 and I’m taking Quercetin with it because it’s a zinc ionophore and will help the zinc be usable by your cells. I take zinc sulphate.

I chew up a zinc lozenge several times a week and have a nifty copper quart sized flask I fill and drink water from.

I'm in my 60's and my hair is still my original color. Never gone gray.

Warning: you must be careful to purchase a high quality copper flask. Nothing cheap!

I have actually listened to someone who looked deep into zinc and how much to take. 100 mg per day if you feel yourself getting sick. 30 mg per day on a regular basis and you should be bullet proof.

You shouldn't take more than 30 mg long term since it will damage your kidneys.

Vitamin D. I spoke directly with a doctor...a trustworthy one...he said 10,000 IU during the summer and 15,000 IU in the winter. Even people that get sun every day can be low in vitamin d. Unless you are exposing "fresh skin" daily you can not absorb enough.

This is the brand I use. Jarrow is a very good brand, and the price is also good. It contains copper. I dose once a day as I also take other supps.

[link to www.iherb.com (secure)]

This blurb is from the Jarrow site...

Zinc Balance® combines Zinc L-Methionine and Copper Gluconate (15:1 ratio). Zinc L-Methionine allows zinc absorption with phytate and fiber in vegetables.* Zinc supports immune function.* Zinc Balance® includes copper because supplemental zinc depletes copper.*

I just read about that one online, because I trust and like Jarrow brand.

HOWEVER....I guess you're not supposed to take zinc and copper AT THE SAME TIME. They don't digest properly together or something. So...I use separate bottles of zinc and copper and take at different times of the day.

There might be other factors though... for each individual and their level of health and level of depletion.

Also some may want to lower their dose if they take it every day and have take it daily for some time.

I have no fucking idea other than to be careful not to over do it and toxify the body with too much zinc.

Use Zinc in chelated form (like Zinc glycinate) for better absorption.

I take 25mg daily with food when I'm feeling well.
I increase that to 25mg x 2 times per day with food if I feel like I'm starting to catch a cold
I increase that to 25mg x 3 times per day if I actually am sick.

[link to www.amazon.com (secure)]

----

In addition, take a zinc ionophore like Quercitin once per day with food (twice per day if you're sick).


[link to www.amazon.com (secure)]

---

You should also take copper if you're using zinc because the two compete in your body. Taking zinc without copper may lead to a copper deficiency and vice versa.

I take 2.5 mg of chelated copper once per day AT LEAST 2 HOURS APART from when I took zinc.

If I'm feeling like I'm starting a cold or getting sick, I take 2 x 2.5mg of chelated copper, again 2 hours apart from the zinc.

If I'm full blown sick, I take 3 x 2.5 mg of chelated copper, again 2 hours apart from the zinc.

It's better to take them separately because they both compete against each other.

2 hours apart is the recommendation for optimal absorption.

Both should also be chelated forms and taken with food (even just a piece of toast is enough, doesn't need to be much food) for best absorption.

It's considered to be roughly 250% of the USRDA for copper. You'll poop out what your body doesn't need.

If you eat a lot of shellfish, nuts, and organ meats (i.e. liver), then you probably can skip the copper and just supplement zinc.

I take 100 mg daily. I'm a workout nut and it makes a big difference in my ability to recovery. I went down to 50 mg a day and I could tell a real difference. 50 mg a day wasn't doing the job for me.

If I were inactive, 100 mg might be too much. I show no signs of zinc toxicity. I've been taking that level for about two years.

Hey Butch, as someone mentioned above, you should also take selenium daily.

The best way to get your selenium is by eating 3-4 Brazil nuts (you'll get other micro-minerals and micro-nutrients from the Brazil nuts as well).

2-3 Brazil nuts = roughly 200mcg (micrograms) of selenium from a natural source.

A big bag like this will last you 4+ months: [link to www.amazon.com (secure)]



And also wanted to mention, but you probably already know, take 1.2 grams-1.6 grams of liposomal vitamin C daily (with food), and 10,000IU vitamin D3 + vitmain K2 (in the same capsule) every day with food.

Double the liposomal vitamin C (to ~ 3 grams) and the vitamin D3+K2 (to 20,000iu) if you start to feel like you're getting sick or are sick.

With everything mentioned above you'll have a kick-ass immune system supplement plan making sure your immune system can fight off just about anything that comes your way.
