If I am taking a Mens One a day in the morning and at night, and, is there anyway that much zinc could cause side effects or long term problems?
How much total zinc in mg are you ingesting through these per day? Zinc is a mineral that is pretty easy to overdose on.
I know many guys that take ZMA & a good multi; if you train hard you use more Mg & Zn that most people. Should be OK.
The zinc doesn't bother me, but the extra magnesium from ZMA makes me run to the bathroom. Higher doses I think leads to the lack of absorption of other minerals like iron and copper.
weight training increase the body's demand for minerals. I believe there are several studies showing the vast majority of weight training individuals are deficient in zinc, and the RDA is based on sedentary people.
I wouldn't stress it.

You should be aware of vitamin A intake; do not overdose..
the Mens one a day vitamin contains Vitamin A (14% as Beta-Carotene) 3500.0 IU per 1 pill. I took two today and was going to start taking two with ZMA in a week from now, is that a bad idea?
I am now taking 70mg of zinc daily between a men one a day's vitamin and ZMA, I was going to take two one-a-days but then I would be at 100mg of zinc a day and I don't want to chance going over the 'safe' zone, is this a good move? I dont know how much is border-line or not but I am 6'3 219 lbs taking 70 mg a day, is that too much?! Thanks
You could always drop the ZMA dosage to 2 pills a day (assuming its a 3 cap serving) if your worried about it....at least you'd save a buck or two.
