Maybe consider adding some copper to balance the zinc (I forget the ratio off the top of my head).

Depending on your fat intake, it may need to be increased.
Dr. G, since this thread is about the upper limit for zinc, this is probably a good time to ask. I know that zinc toxicity is very real for metal workers etc. But I read once, and I searched all over for it, but couldn't find it, in an article I came across it said that athletes did not need to worry about zinc toxicity from supplementation because they lose so much zinc. I do believe the article was also selling a mineral supplement, so I have to be suspect of their recommendation, but it made sense. I think I read something similar on Tnation about their Elite Mineral Support as well.
