The National Institutes of Health produced a fact sheet on zinc. It’s titled “Dietary Supplement Fact Sheet: Zinc”, but it should be called, “Everything You’ve Always Wanted to Know About Zinc But Were Afraid to Ask,” because it’s very detailed and has lots of information, including recommended daily dietary intake.

Good luck and hopefully this answers your question.

Self-control is like a muscle; the more you use it, the stronger it becomes.

Handle every stressful situation like a dog. If you can't eat it or play with it, just pee on it and walk away.

Hi everyone. I know what good sources of zinc are (i.e., whole grains, soy products, nuts, and wheat germ); however, even with this information it doesn't appear I'm getting anywhere near the amount of zinc I should.

What is a normal amount? Perhaps my food tracker is too high? I noticed it was too high for calcium so I manually lowered that nutrient.

I should probably add that I looked on vrg.org and didn't find an answer to my question.
