I've been taking 30mg zinc daily, I feel like it's actually making a big difference.

Is there really a connection between Zinc and testosterone?

How much can I take?

Tox levels arent reached until well over 50mg/day. Zinc is great, Victor Conte knew what he was doing. Just make sure to take it on an empty stomach (calcium will interfere with absorption).

I'm also trying zinc out at the moment along with some other vitamins/minerals that has been shown to raise testosterone.

Zinc 30mg/day
Vit D 3000iu/day
Magnesium 500mg/day
Vit B6 600mg/day

So I'll see how it goes.

It can help if you're deficient. Intense training depletes Zinc levels, causing many athletically active people to be deficient. The more deficient you are, the more dramatic the effects of supplementation will be. This was the science behind which a lot of ZMA claims were made.

Zinc is an aromatase suppressor, which can help regulate testosterone production. It encourages proper cell growth as well as healthy prostate and immune functioning. Possessing some anti-inflammatory properties, its even been shown to improve certain acne symptoms.

ZMA fell short of the ridiculous marketing campaigns in the 90's, claiming it was this great "test-booster." However, it does offer benefits to users.

Another good way to get Zinc is by eating Wheaties or similar Multi-Grain Flake Cereal (the off brands are actually better with more Zinc).  These have the highest concentrations of Zinc of any food product.  I eat two servings at a time with a cup of milk and that gives me over 30 grams of Zinc just in the cereal alone.  Plus you get all of your other vitamins X 200 percent of RDA with that particular cereal, including all of your B Vitamins which are also very important.

Zinc status and serum testosterone levels of healthy adults

    Ananda S. Prasad, MD, PHDCorresponding author contact information, a, b, c,
    Chris S. Mantzoros, MDa, b, c,
    Frances W.J. Beck, PHDa, b, c,
    Joseph W. Hess, MDa, b, c,
    George J. Brewer, MDa, b, c

Dietary zinc restriction in normal young men was associated with a significant decrease in serum testosterone concentrations after 20 weeks of zinc restriction (baseline versus post-zinc restriction mean SD, 39.9 7.1 versus 10.6 3.6 nmol/L, respectively; p = 0.005). Zinc supplementation of marginally zinc-deficient normal elderly men for six months resulted in an increase ins erum testosterone from 8.3 6.3 to 16.0 4.4 nmol/p (p = 0.02). We conclude that zinc may play an important role in modulating serum testosterone levels in normal men.
