ZMA- Need info please
I got a bottle of ZMA and had the worst sleep in weeks. I made the mistake of taking after a light meal before I went to bed. It says to take it on an empty stomach. Can anyone give me a little info on do's and don'ts. I am not taking it now because I don't want to go through that again. I was told it can help with a deeper sleep.

don't take ZMA, with a meal high in calcium (diary), the calcium will inhibit absorbtion

Thanks guys. My problem is I very rarely go to bed with an empty stomach. I just started taking melatonin again so I am going to try to arrange my eating schedule so I don't have a meal at 10 or 11 at night. It's tough though, I have very long days and I am always hungry at night.

Have a casine shake 60 miniutes before bed than take zma as you lay down. I don't know about everyone else but it takes me a good 20-30minutes to get to sleep when I lay down especially if the girlfriend is in a good mood.

Thanks Merph. Last night I came home from the gym at 8, had a steak and a casein protein shake 1 1/2 hours later I took a 3mg melatonin and the ZMA. Still woke up to go to the bathroom twice but had a decent night sleep. However, I did not like going to bed hungry and I was starving when I woke up this morning. I still need to play with my diet more. I need more calories earlier in the day.

Keep a whey shake next to the bed. I get up atleast 2-3 times a night to take a piss and drink a shake in the mean time and I'm not so hungry. I hear you on the hunger thing. It sucks but its part of life.

I love ZMA... I take 3 at bedtime with a protien shake and man do i get into a deep sleep quick.. and the dreams are all over the place.
I have been married 17 years so my wife is not in a good mood as much I wish she was... Oh well!!!
ZMA for life on PCT's Can you take it all the time...? I have only ever used on a post cycles. I love the stuff though!!

If the blend consist of Tribulus,Milk Thistle, Testofen, 3, 17 ketoetiochol-triene, Aspire,
6, 17 keto etiocholeva-3-ol tetrahydropyranol, saw palmetto. I would think its ok. But would feel better if you talked to the maker of PCT.
