    Hi girls,

    My DH takes Wellman vitamins (formula provides the nutrients a man may need to help maintain energy release, make the critical difference in reactions, speed and mental alertness, or to help maintain reproductive health) which contain zinc. A few of you have suggested taking zinc supplements, but not sure what dose he should be taking and if the Wellman contains enough @ 15mg. What is recommended for men? Any advice on this?

    Thanks in advance, x.

    The recommended dosage of zinc for men is between 15 and 50 grams, according to fertilenet.com. So DH should be just fine! :D

    Thanks Chris, I couldn't find it anywhere when I googled it, obviously typing the wrong thing in. So he will be pleased to know he doesn't need any more tablets!!!
