50-100 mg. I heard anything over that is toxic. Not sure about the 90% stat though. You should try B5 with that as well. Either that or accutane if you want to make a big impression.

Go for 50 mg of zinc, and take 2 mg copper to balance it. Some zinc supplements already have the copper included. If you are not already taking Vitamin C, I would recommend taking 250 mg per day. Other than that, I would recommend:

25,000 IU Beta Carotene
200 to 400 IU Vitamin E

Re: What's the best brand of Zinc to get?

If they recommend a 8:1 ration of zinc to copper, why is everyone saying to only take 2mgs of copper with 50mgs zinc?

Re: What's the best brand of Zinc to get?

The RDA of copper for adults is 1.5 to 3.0 mg. Too much copper is not good for you as it is a trace element in your body. The most common supplement of copper comes in 2.0 mg doses. I've taken 50 mg of zinc for years , without taking any copper supplements. Only recently I've been adding the copper (2 mg.) supplement 12 hours from the zinc supplement. Just remember, tap water used for drinking, cooking, etc. is a source of copper because of all the copper plumbing in use today.

Also, DO NOT TAKE Zinc Sulfate as it is a stomach irritant.

I take Zinc Gluconate (50mg) on an empty stomach and have had no problems.

I've read the 8:1 and 10:1 zinc to copper ratio stuff also. I am just a little skeptical of taking that much copper.<p>[This message has been edited by redwing (edited 06-12-2001).]
