> I appreciate the feedback, but I must state that my own personal experience has been that I had numerous white flecks all my life until I started supplementing zinc. I use my hands quite physically, and I no longer have any white flecks.

Same here. My white spots are gone after I started taking 5 mg zinc in my multi-mineral supplement.

Too much zinc causes depletion of copper. I've read of a case where the patient self-administered very high (800-1000mg/day) doses of zinc for one year, and the tests revealed a copper deficiency. (You can find the abstract on medline)

Larry, actually I could use some information about zinc too. I am taking 100 mg/day right now (and no supplementary copper) for testosterone increasing purposes, and having very good results.

Is this dose safe as it is? Should I just add some copper (and soething else maybe?) or just decrease the dose?

take care,

cem
