How much total Zinc are you taking?
I'm on 50mg/day with no adverse effects so far. I've heard that more than 50mg and you need to add copper. HAN recommended 2mg/day copper.

You mention not taking calcium at the same time as zinc.
This is one I was aware of as I understand calcium to be a large molecule which can block absorbtion of other vitamins/minerals.
So here's the $50 question: Why do multivitamins contain calcium? Most of the multis I see contain 200 mg calcium. Does that amount inhibit any other vitamins?

I like a multivitamin for men lower in calcium and so one can add more calcium later in the day. Thats why I love intramax its perfectly balanced to avoid this compeition between nutrients.

I just found out LEF's 2 per day only has 20 mg calcium and would only cost about $7.00 per month. The forms are better, too - no oxides, etc...
It doesn't have any copper though, so I would need to add that separately, but copper is cheap; plus I can take it later in the day away from the multi.
Would copper compete Vitamin C or DHEA? I take a second serving of those with dinner.

How i got my self into this mess in the first place. after 8 weeks of taking crappy multivitamin my body begin to break down. i will never chance that again
country life men's formula taken 1 pill 2 times aday
more extra mmineral support VPX CMZ
add in iron or copper if blood results reflect it
b complex 3 times a day
1000 mgs ester c 3 times a day
all basis should be covered.
Yes 65 bucks is alot BUT it can knock out about 200 bucks worth of liver clenser, fiber supplments, probiotics, and also replenishedd amino acids, and other antioxidents

(GDX - Metabolic Analysis Profile) including (GDX - Cellular Energy Profile)
at hand I am in a process of completing questionare from
CustomVite.Com - Personalized Nutritional Supplements
that my doc have given to me.
I list all my medicines and supplements that I am taking.
It looks to me like they will tell me to drop everything that I am buying from LEF and will try to sell me their product.
Depending on respectability of company that may be either good or bad.
Have you ever heard of:
P.O. Box 895
260 Docks Corner Road
Dayton, NJ 08810
They are probably located relatively close to you.
I will make attempt at not buying any of their product, but getting list of recomendations.
If they use once word "proprietary" and want to make me go without a complete disclosure, I am dropping them.
Actually I will have a talk with my doc to figure out before hand, the end product that I can expect.
