Zinc and other heavy metals - toxic levels?
Hey guys I was wondering about the amount of Zinc present in some of the supps I’m taking are within the safe limits.
one contains 12.5 Mg “Zinc Chelated” (once daily in morning)
The other contains 12.5mg “Zinc Citrate” (once daily in evening)
So I guess that’s 25mg total, but it seems to me that “Chelated” and “Citrate” may decrease the amount of actual Zinc in it. These are part of multivitamin style sups. Likewise, are there any other suppliments I should avoid taking relatively high doses of? I know fat-soluble vitamins are a bad idea, as are heavy metals…
I believe we had a Dr. of Pharmacology on the board somewhere who may be able to answer this :)
