Well I think there are a few clues to your question in this thread? More than 50mg per day can impair your imune system.
It's not just MP who have lowered the Zinc dosage to 15mg, quite a lot of the big brands have done the same.
Really? I can't see any reference to impairment of immunity at high dosages in this thread.
What I wanted to know was the effect of lowering the dosages of zinc (as well as having only the one form of zinc in the formula), as this would have effects on testosterone and growth hormone production.
As you can see the B6 has been changed to the original amount, Zinc has been lowered and a small amount of copper added.
The only reason I can possibly think for this to have happened is because some beleive that taking excessive amounts of zinc (in any form) can interfere with the bodys ability to use copper. So I think the copper was added to try prevent this. Although on the other hand many foods such as meats, grains, veggies etc are rich in copper. So if you eat a balanced diet you'll be ok regardless.
What happens then if you consume too much copper? Well abdominal pain, cramps, nausea, diarrhea, vomiting, and liver damage are just some consequences. How much is too much then? Not sure
