    Hi everyone,

    Had a thread about buying Zinc yesterday i've now gone and bought some from Holland and Barrett firstly im well impressed with paying £4,99 for 250 x 25mg tablets

    But secondly on the bottle it says one per day although i have a feeling that this wont be enough so can someone advise please

    This is the info ...
    25mg %EC RDA 167%

    Cheers all

    Theres no one on here who is qualified to advise you properley, follow the recommended dosage on the bottle :thumbsup:

    R.D.A. recommended daily allowance.

    Zinc RDA is 15Mg...the label says you are getting 167% of your RDA with one tablet

    A random googling suggests: "It would not be wise to take excess zinc as it suppresses copper and ]calcium absorption. Copper is necessary for hemoglobin formation in red blood cells, enzymes and collagen (connective tissue)"

    Correct.

    As all of the above.

    Stick to the recommended dosage - One tablet can do plenty. Just don't expect an overnight miracle - your body will need to adjust and so on, and I should think that over the next few weeks you'll see your acne or whatever clear up (by rights).

    Now you've stated that R.D.A is 167% with one tablet it seems im getting 1 and 2/3 of my daily allowance anyway ...

    Is this correct ?

    A lot of these supplements go way over the %RDA of vitamins and minerals. As long as you don't exceed the stated dosage you shouldn't suffer any side effects - but of course I am neither a trained dietician or medical professional :thumbsup:

    Agreed, but some may experience benefits at least through the placebo effect.
