my suggestion is 11mg, 100% DRI as albion glycinate or l-optizinc

Yes. [zinc glycinate, 30 mg / q.o.d.]


any reason for the higher suggestion considering the high bioavailability of zinc glycinate?

I think q.o.d. means every other day, and he's just stating what he currently takes (I am guessing)?

I'd be happier with a little more zinc, at around 15mg, but that's a biased suggestion (since I tend to be lowish in diet for zinc). 11mg would probably be best for most people, unless you wanted to go a tad higher, with the idea some people may not take the full dosage.

Any zinc absorption studies where they compare zinc glycinate vs optizinc? Or even against something like zinc citrate?

zinc glycinate had superior absorption and distribution (a problem with citrate) compared to citrate, picolinate, gluconate & suplphate i believe. i cant find the study but i posted it a while back...

Yes, I take my zinc glycinate every other day [ie., q.o.d.]

Read up on L-optizinc, they cite percentages vs. Citrate, I believe. You could easily find out how glycinate compares to it, then.

If the dosage is low as you suggest to make it, then it better be cost efficient. That way, there's no need to half dose it unless your intake is REALLY high for some reason.

I personally would like to see it at 15mg as L-optizinc (glycinate if it's more effective).
