ZMK Morning drowsiness
Hi, I used to use ZMA products but I really felt drowsy when I woke up, thus making me doubt the quality of my sleep. I know many people experienced the same thing.
My question is, has this issue been addressed in any way with the ZMK formulation?Mind and Muscle Board Representative I am not a physician and any advice is solely based on personal experience with various products

wow.. someone who had the same experience as I did with ZMA. Even on days i went to bed at my usual 9pm and got a full 8 hrs.

I might be experiencing this now w/ZMA, but I didn't realize this could be the ZMA...
I haven't tried ZMK.

For the most part people report feeling well rested when using ZMK. It is roughly twice as bioavailable as ZMA and hits the system faster which means you should hit REM sleep faster as well. In my opinion a little grogginess in the morning isn't a bad thing since it means that your recovery factor is still high. If it happens daily and doesn't continue to get better then switching to a product like ZMK would be beneficial.
There are many factors that can make nighttime mineral products feel ineffective. Make sure they aren't taken in the vacinity of food or calcium and watch the other supps you take with it.

Well I have heard good things about your products and I like the look of your vitamin mineral stack. Good health is a real key to having a heathy fit and efficient body.

Im using the ZMK right now and I havenít felt the morning drowsiness.
I think the relaxing/sedative feeling that you get from the magnesium should be out of your system within a couple hours anyway. I couldnít even imagine a morning hang over with this product, unless your just rebounding from a good nights rest that your not used to.

My experience is from the ZMA products that were out 5 or 6 years ago.

the only times i have seen this with the ZMK product was when i did not get a full 8 hours of sleep. with 5 hours, it seemed to give me a very "heavy" feeling. i am sure you can attribute this to still being in a deep stage of sleep. therefore, i will only take 1 or 2 if i know i cannot sleep the full time. also, i have been experimenting with the dosing timing around food intake. it seems to be a little more effective for me when taken with without food but as millennium said above just try to keep calcium out of the mix.
It would also make sense that some people, in general, are not used to having the "flood" of minerals during their sleep period. Full body recuperation is appreciated side effect and i also felt a minor buffering effect.
ZMK is a great product and i have seen much better biofeedback from it than its ZMA predecessors. I love the stuff.
Good Luck DW
