In brief: Minerals

Zinc is safe, copper can become toxic if level too high.

In brief: Why take zinc?

Zinc is listed on internet sites as "good for" dozens of things but these are the same things that people are likely to say are helped by placebos (acne, adhd, impotence).
You can make yourself sick taking zinc and you're probably taking copper to prevent the copper deficiency -- the latter can be toxic as well. Why not eat a sensible diet and join some friends in fitness activities instead?
