Hi -


I'm sure that this question has come up before - but after searching for a bit -

Well, this table on kellymom (http://www.kellymom.com/nutrition/vitamins/reference-intake-table.html) says that nursing moms shouldn't exceed 40 mg of zinc per day and 8 mg is the typical RDA.


The Cold-Eeze web site says each lozenge contains 13.3 mg of zinc and they advise you to take up to 6 lozenges per day. This is JMHO but I personally would be comfortable taking a few of these per day but probably not the 6 per day that they recommend.


Does that help?
