Nickel is a mineral. It is found in several foods including nuts, dried beans and peas, soybeans, grains, and chocolate. The body needs nickel, but in very small amounts. Nickel is a common trace element in multiple vitamins.

Nickel is used for increasing iron absorption, preventing iron-poor blood (anemia), and treating weak bones (osteoporosis).

Nickel is an essential nutrient in some chemical processes in the body. Its precise functions in the body are not known.

Likely Effective for:

Preventing nickel levels in the body from getting too low (nickel deficiency). Nickel deficiency has not been reported in people, although it may exist, since nickel deficiency has been seen in animals. Taking trace amounts of nickel in a supplement is effective for preventing nickel deficiency.

Insufficient Evidence for:

Improving iron absorption.
Preventing anemia.
Improving osteoporosis and bone health.
Other conditions.
More evidence is needed to rate the effectiveness of nickel for these uses.

Nickel is safe for most adults in amounts up to 1 mg/day. More than 1 mg/day might not be safe. Taking amounts slightly above the 1 mg/day level increases the chances of unwanted side effects. High doses are poisonous.

Workers who have been exposed to nickel on the job over an extended period of time can develop allergies, lung disorders, and cancer.

Special Precautions & Warnings:

Pregnancy and breast-feeding: Nickel is safe in pregnant or breast-feeding adult women when used in doses less than the tolerable upper intake level (UL) of 1 mg/day. The safety of higher doses is unknown.

Children: Nickel is safe in children in daily doses less than the tolerable upper intake level (UL) of 0.2 mg/day in children 1 to 3 years, 0.3 mg/day in children 4 to 8 years, and 0.6 mg/day in children 9 to 13 years. Taking higher doses might not be safe.

Kidney disease: People with kidney disease may not be able to tolerate nickel as well as other people. It’s best to avoid nickel supplements if you have kidney problems.

Nickel allergy: People who are sensitive to nickel, including those with a history of skin rash after contact with nickel-containing jewelry, coins, stainless steel items, surgical implants, or dental appliances, can develop allergic reactions to nickel taken by mouth. These people should not take nickel supplements.

Moderate Interaction. Be cautious with this combination:

Disulfiram (Antabuse) interacts with NICKEL
Disulfiram (Antabuse) might decrease how much nickel your body absorbs, making nickel supplements less effective.
