This study was carried out to investigate the effects of various doses of organic and mineral zinc or LH, FSH and testosterone hormones of male mice (Balb/c race). Seventy male mice were divided in seven groups randomly. Samples were fed a normal diet for 35 days. Zinc supplement was added into drink water in 50, 100 and 150 ppm doses in both mineral and organic forms as six treatment groups and one control group. After 35 days blood samples were taken. According to results, LH amount was increased in all groups except 50 ppm mineral but FSH was reduced in 50 ppm mineral and increased in 100 ppm mineral and testosterone was increased in 50 and 150 ppm organic and reduced in 100 ppm mineral. Considering the results, adding organic or mineral zinc into ration can affect male reproduction process dose dependently via affecting reproductive hormones.
