Zinc supports the immune system by fighting viruses and bacteria. 2-13 milligrams of zinc is recommended on a daily basis. Infants need the least, teenagers and men require it the most (around 12 milligrams), whereas women require 8 milligrams of zinc intake. One could consume zinc in their regular diet or even go for supplements. Over consumption may lead to abdominal cramps, vomiting, and a high risk of copper deficiency.

Daily recommended dose of zinc is roughly 11mg for men and 8mg for women. The main thing to consider is that zinc shouldn’t be consumed on an empty stomach as a large amount can induce nausea or vomiting.
