Too Much Zinc?

I’ve been taking a tablet which contains 15mg zinc each night just before bed and have been sleeping a lot better, as well as finding it easier to go to sleep.

However, I had a look on the jar on vitamins that I take twice a day and it seems that each dose contains 15mg on zinc.

In total, I’m currently taking 45mg of zinc per day, is this too much? I know you can take too much zinc but I’m unsure of what that level is.

Thanks

You on ZMA? I just take the 15 at night that is contained in that pill.

That shouldn’t be too much. Nothing to worry about.

No, I just take zinc on its own. I use magnesium oil as well.

Smart on the magensium oil. I use it as well.
