The recommended daily allowance for zinc is between eight to eleven milligrams for most adults. However, most progressive nutritionists and doctors recommend between 30-40 mg/daily. Zinc can be a problem when one takes in more than 100 mg/daily. The preferred form of zinc is in an amino acid chelate such as glycinate chelate.
