You can take up to 100mg daily
Did you consider eating food?Food contains zinc.It would make more sense to dissolve the zinc- for example in citric acid- than to eat the metal. Most of the metal would probably dissolve in the stomach, but that's a bit hit+ miss- and the local high concentrations are likely to cause irritation.I still wouldn't bother.You should also read this sort of thinghttps://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Zinc_toxicityAlsoQuote from: championoftruth on 16/01/2021 13:36:23You can take up to 100mg dailyAnd (unless you happen to be deficient) you will piss about 90 mg of it straight out again.
Zinc has been used therapeutically
This means i save money by not having to buy zinc metal.
when you eat zinc surely it would react with hydrochloric acid to make zinc chloride.

It's not what I would do.https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/ManganismYou also seem to be forgetting the flip side of this.You can eat quite a lot of zinc without it doing any harm.But is it doing any good?Quote from: championoftruth on 16/01/2021 17:01:59when you eat zinc surely it would react with hydrochloric acid to make zinc chloride.well if zinc 99% pure THEN 1% manganese will be only 1mg from 100mg intake.i could also sue the battery makers for not telling me the impurity level.
however the question has not really been answered of zinc particles being made from zinc plate being edible
i don't want to spend money
i cleaned the zinc plate.
I want to take zinc supplements to keep myself safe from horrible diseases and i have bought 180 tablets of 500mg zinc citrate which states it has 30 mg of elemental zinc.This cost 12 pounds!You can take up to 100mg daily. This means this will only last 180/3 =60 days. If i share with family it will last only 10 days!I don't want o spend any more money on zinc supplements. i am very tight fisted.I want to know instead of wasting money on zinc citrate if I can buy pure zinc and then use a abrasive file on the pure zinc to make small particles of zinc of mass 30 mg to 100 mg which i would then swallow with water or a smoothie?This will save me money and a single sheet of 200 grams will last much longer.
Zinc and most of its alloys are too weak and/ or too susceptible to corrosion.You could use brass.That would almost certainly add too much copper- which tastes filthy.So, it seems you have suggested a non-solution to a non- problem.There's no real evidence here of zinc deficiency.
Due to intensive farming most soils are depleted
