Can I half dose the MVP ZMK stack?
I am a bit short of money now day and was wondering how to make the MVP /ZMK I've got las a bit longer. Instead of going one month on and one off I was wondering if:
a) I could take half a dose of each every day
b) I could do one day on one off maybe even adding a cheaper multi on "off" days like NOW Adam.
I understand none of this options is ideal but I'd really like to try this product (heard great things) but times do not allow me to buy it each month.
Thanks in advance.

i've done 3 caps of mvp and 3 caps of zmk a day. it worked well for me and lasts 10 days longer so you get 40 days out of the stack.

On my off days I only take 2 mvp and 2 zmk and still feel all of the benefits that the products provide. If you take 2 days off a week, thats 8 days in a month, saving you 16 pills. I know it only gets you a few more days.....but that could be an option for you!
To be honest....2 pills of mvp/zmk is far more efficient than the normal dose of any other multi i've tried.

Yeah, that is what I figured from all the positive comments. So do you think If I dose 2 MVP in the morning, 2 NOW ADAM (which I already own, and instead of the other 2 MVP) and 2 ZMK at night I will be covered?To be honest....2 pills of mvp/zmk is far more efficient than the normal dose of any other multi i've tried.
BTW, is MVP supposed to be taken with food?

I dont really know much about the NOW product, so i'd really rather not give advice either way pertaining to that. I do think the 2/2 method would be perfectly fine for some days though.
Also, you definitely should take your mvp with a meal but make sure to take your zmk at least 2 hours after your last meal and without any calcium at all.

Thanks CTDeuce, I guess a 2/2 protocol is what I'll follow. I've heard other people only taking mineral 5 on 2 off (weekends) to remove excess minerals as that is supposed to increase longevity, any take on that?

I see you found your way here
I take 3 MVP (in 1 dose) 5 days a week to save some money. Still notice positive effects from it.
Removing EXCESS minerals for longetivity purposes only apply to heavy metals, iron, calcium and to a lesser extend copper.
ZMK rocks even more then MVP btw I just HAVE to take 4 of those, it makes my sleep so much better..

Hey HP1man you are everywhere , thanks a bunch for that clarification.
So do you take ZMK on weekends? and have you noticed a really diferent effect from 3 ZMK to 4 before sleep? I ask becauseI really dunno what to expect, I used to take animal pak and have never taken ZMA, ZMT or anything like that.

CTdeuce, any big reason why its recommended to take 2 x 2 MVP in stead of 1x4 ? Thanks.

Basically just making things easier on your system for absorbtion.

Cool then, I'll take it 7 days a week both MVP and ZMK, gonna experiment with dosages to see if I feel a diffenrence (primarily in ZMK).
Hey 1HP, any reason why you do chelating on weekends? Why not take a daily morning dose of IP6 and the k2 (since MVP contains D3 but I don't know if the D3 containes is enough for chelating purposes.)

However I'm actually going to start what you're suggesting this week since I'm tightening up my diet/regime even more and going to go stricter on IFF. Then I can take IP6 first thing and the rest of my morning supps after shower/shaving, and breakfast wont be for a few hours anyway. This also suits me better since I want as less interference as possible between quercetin/bioperine gluco/sulfa inhibiting effects (experimenting with that to increase resveratrol bioavailability) and my actual breakfast. And I can go 7 days a week on everything this way
I take 5000 IU D3 from now foods.
