Optimal ZMA dose/ratio

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.

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.

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.

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?

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.
