Zinc is involved in a considerable number of processes and functions:
The recommended daily allowance of zinc is 10mg. Our zinc carbonate capsules deliver 17.4mg of elemental zinc. This is a strong dose, 174% of the RDA, but delivered in a form that is less easily absorbed in the body. This will slow down the rate at which the zinc becomes effective.
The daily requirement of zinc is readily available in a balanced diet, including vegetarian diets if they include wholegrains and pulses (such as beans and lentils).
The body regulates its zinc levels so that within reasonable limits any extra is discarded. However, excessive zinc consumption can have toxic effects, or could lead to anaemia. Do not consume more than 25mg total zinc per day unless under specific medical advice. For medically-advised doses above 50mg per day, about 5mg per day of additional copper should also be taken.
Zinc supplements are thought to be better absorbed if taken between meals.
