    Anybody here actualy used this stuff?
    I only stumbled across it while looking for something to help me sleep and found that it seems, or at least lays claim to having other benefits – google it – It seems pretty cheap so I might just take one for the team anyway and see how it goes.

    And if anyone would like to chime in with some homespun sleep remedies, Im all ears.

    The Zinc part of the ZMA is to replenish zinc lost during workouts. Some kind of fatigue sets in if its not specially replaced. The other parts of ZMA – magnesium and some other act as support for the zinc. It definitely aids with better sleep, and is a worthwhile supp’ for long term weight lifting. Just work out how much suits your needs, without overdosing, as zinc & magnesium are minerals and its a bit dodgy to overdose on. DA

    It’s going to be hard to overdose ZMA since magnesium is a rather effective laxative. If you take too much you will know about it.

    bongs….. 😆
    You cant get a herbal supp called sleep aid or sleep plus by natures own my gf used to take them they worked pretty well. There’s also one called insomnia but dunno about that one.

    When the Original ZMA first came out in the early 90s it worked and worked well because Victor Conte (the inventor) was lacing it with….”less than kosher” ingredients….

    I take it as part of my tribulis stack (it has trib, tongkat and ZMA in the one formula). It surely cant hurt to take it. Depends on how much $$$ you’re willing to spend on your supplements.

    I get each bottle for $7.99 so its worth it for me esp when dieting.

    Zinc has shown(according to charles poliquin) to help with guys who have the dreaded man tits. Im not talking full on gyno just guys who have a tendency to store fat in the chest area.

    I get mine from my local chiro.Its called zinc drink.Its about $15. The key is u put a dab on your tongue and it tastes like ass then u do not need it.On the other hand if u taste nothing then u need to start supplementing with it.

    Also helps if u suffer from mouth ulcers.Trust me this is how i originally found out about zinc.Its great stuff
