    From what I've read, 100mg of Zinc per day is sufficient and any more could actually do more harm than good.

      the RDA recomendation for zinc is only 11mg per day!! it lists the upper safe level at just 40mg/day. A high dose is considered 50-450mg, and may cause vomitting, diarrhea, headaches, and exaustion. the reason not to take to much zinc is because it interferes with the absorbtion of copper, which leads to degeneration of the heart muscle! they also think high doses accelerate the development of atherosclerosis.

      please be careful and know what u are taking. i know it seems harmless, but there are some serious side effcts to overdosing vitamins and minerals.
