    Optimal ZMA dose/ratio


    My primary goal is improved quality of sleep, improved physical recovery and whatever GH elevation is theorized from the benefits of said.

    I'm seeing manufacturers with doses all over the place. What's the skinny?
    We live in a time where our planet suffers from two epidemics simultaneously - starvation and obesity.

    Look at all these little kids taking care of the music biz, don't their business take good care of me.

    I have the fire, I have the force, I have the power to make my evil take it's course.


  2. From personal experience, I've found that just taking just the natural zinc, natural magnesium, and B6 tablets at your local grocery store have pretty much the same effect for about 1/3the cost.

    Just thought I'd throw that out there.

  3. I like Dymatize ZMA, cheap and contains tribulus, and some other stuff. Def. improves sleep, test production and all that comes with that... and the morning wood.

  4. I thought all manufacturers were trying to duplicate the amounts used in that study with magnesium-defficient athletes. That's why I never paid attention to the doses. I guess results then would depend on how Z and MG defficient you are.

    "That study"? Reference?

    The reason I ask is because I have seen products with various doses and ratios. I'm not looking for a prodcut plug. I was looking for more understanding on what is ideal for my body.

    Of course I will continue my own extensive research. I'm at work and bored so I started like many other newbies...ask questions before I do my own research.

    Here is a summary

    Ask the Expert about ZMA Dietary Supplement

    Here's another summary with references at the bottom

    Asylum Training - Nutritional Supplements - zma: zinc, magnesium, B6

  8. Brian, I was thinking of starting ZMA myself. My question would be about overdosing. If I'm already taking zinc and mag. supps, and also a multi-vit and mineral, should I discontinue those once I start ZMA?

  9. 450mg Magnesium
    30mg Zinc
    12.5mg B6

    That is the patented formula but the FORM is important, zinc and magnesium should be aspartate, and ZMA really does work, i'd take it over basic Tribulus anyday.

  10. I had a bottle of twinlab zma a long time ago that said not to takw with dairy products...anyone know why?

    Magnesium and calcium "fight" for absorption.
