    To much Zinc?

    I am currently taking a multivitamin twice a day as instructed on back that contains 10mg Zinc and 1mg Copper.

    I have also been taking a Zinc/Copper tablet with 15mg Zinc and 0.75mg Copper. I have run out of these and all I can find now is a 50mg Zinc and 2mg Copper combo tablet.

    Is taking 70mg a day of Zinc unhealthy and bad for my system. How much copper would I have to take to counter-balance the Zinc?

    So currently I will be taking 70mg Zinc and 3.5mg copper. This ok?

    Thx!

    I was told to take 30-60mg of Zinc and only 2mg of copper. I was low in Zinc but I wasn't too bad I think you might be ok with taking 70mg but I would check with an expert.
