    Lets talk zinc


    What is the best absorbed zinc by the body?

    zinc chelate

    or zinc picolinate ?


    How much zinc can the body absorb at one time? 25mg? 50? 75mg?100 mg?



    Are the 50mg zinc+ 2mg copper tabs like the one by solaray any good or would one be better off to take them seperately for absorbtion reasons?

    from what i keep reading about zinc it that you should avoid taking it with calcium foods and other calcium containing supplements because it will decrease the abosorbtion and affectiveness of zinc. they say ZMA should be taken on an empty stomach so i would say take any type of zinc wether ZMA or just a zinc pill on an empty stomach. i take a zinc pill about an 2 hours after my supper which is about one hour before my bedtime shake.

    Avoid consuming calcium and zinc at the same time. Other than that, it really does not matter tremendously.

    WORD!

    Calcium inhibits the absorption of zinc big time.

    I take ZMA every night, excellent supplement, been taking it for 6 months now.
