mccoy Posted June 28, 2017 Report Share Posted June 28, 2017 (edited) I noticed that yesterday my daily Mn intake has been 13 mg, red bar in cronometer, most of it from oat flakes. I checked my weekly average, which was 11 mg (food only). A search on tolerable upper limits, turns out it's in the region of 8.2 mg daily (60 kg bodyweight) of dietary Mn. Less in elders. Source: EFSA Europe Has anyone of you guys noticed the same and are you concerned about it? My take is that nutrients in natural foods are subject to homeostatic mechanisms so naturally high dosages may be harmless. But maybe that's just a futile self-reassurance.... Edit: I noticed my dietary intake of copper is also exactly as the tolerable upper limit: 5 mg d-1; I take Zn supplements to prevent too much an unfavourable balance of Zn/Cu, but I don't know if the high absolute value may have drawbacks Edited June 28, 2017 by mccoy Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
