Anyone got immune issues taking 45mg zinc a day? I usually never get sick but since i bought zinc tabs i used them and i got sick horribly for some reason. Really good sleep though !
If anything, zinc supports immune function
i know ! which is exactly why i was confused, maybe too much zinc ?
Describe your symptoms.
- You got sick before taking them and started to take zinc during incubation period.
- Your immune system is doing so bad that simple zinc supplementation can’t fully fix it without covering other areas too.
- You weren’t taking it long enough to make an impact and you caught something in meanwhile.
- You are taking too much of it for too long so it actually does some damage…
I would suggest seeing a doctor.
Edit: Zinc and Iron have an impact on eachother.
The same as reason why it’s not reccomended to drink milk 2-3 hours after taking iron supplements. High intake of zinc for extended periods of time was proven to have impact on iron levels.
I personally wouldn’t take zinc over 20mg a day.
10mg is enough, 15 would be perfect.
You need around 10mg a day but it won’t fully apsorb - but you will also get some from your food so it will be OK.
Zinc can cause a copper imbalance also.
