The best ZMA out there is ZMA 5 by SNAC because it has some extra goodies to enhance it. The other base ZMA's are ok, but they lose their effectiveness soon (at least that's what I experienced), SNAC makes the best ZMA formula out there imo. You may experience more vivid dreams every now and then if you take the one by SNAC

You will get a net increase in testosterone if you are lacking any of the main ingredients. Otherwise, if you already have normal levels of them getting extra won't change anything.
On a side-note it gave me funky dreams

Yeah as the above post said I believe the product is based on the premise that many individuals do not have enough zinc or magnesium in their diet...b vit is just there to help absorption I think. I just take some zinc and magnesium before I sleep and I notice the same sleep help I get when I buy zma. The magnesium relaxes a lot of people so it will probably help your sleep quality worth a try if you havent yet

Yea, I would check the content of zinc in your multi vitamin and if you are drinking any protein shakes check that too. Many people take it and are already getting enough of it. I think after a few weeks of taking it every night it becomes a placebo type thing for people.
I like to drop a Gaba pill before I goto bed sometimes. It calms me down especially if I had a stressfull day. Similar to Valerian root, but I think its better.

if it 'works' that's fine. Personally, I'd RATHER pay for a placebo effect. No negative feedback loops associated with placebo :-p

Dont know the chemistry behind it, but back when I took a particular ZMA with GABA in it (low dose, too, 300mg), it gave me something that I can only describe as cellular shakes. After those were over and I eventually fell asleep, I consistently slept like a rock, sometimes through my alarm. I went to google this effect, and I found others reporting similar effects from the GABA. http://onlinelibrary.wiley.com/doi/1...882.x/abstract
Nobody is trying to dispute that GABA taken orally wont give you direct GH boosting effects, but I think there's definitely more to it than you ascribe to it.

Sadly, I can't read more than the first page of the article so I dont know what they talk about. Apparently my U doesnt subscribe to this database anymore.
P.S. I don't know what the sides are of overdosing Vit. b6, but it could be possible that what I had was an effect of the possible B6 overdose?
