Irish Cannon Gets Knocked Out by MST's Sleep Stack (Sponsored)
A huge THANK YOU to CTDeuce and everyone else at Millennium Sport Technologies that made this log possible. I haven't logged for these guys before, but I'm extremely excited to be doing so. I've done quite a few other sponsored logs, as well as personal logs, and I always enjoy sharing my training, diet/nutrition, and any other advice I have.
I'll be logging both Somnidren GH and ZMK.
In the past, I have taken Primaforce ZMA, USPlabs Powerfull, bulk 1-Carboxy, Melatonin, and a few other supplements for sleep aid. I will be comparing the effects of all of this to those of the MST products. I have high hopes for both ZMK and Somnidren; MST is a top-notch company, and the ingredient profile on both of these supplements is awesome.
I've recently been having some on and off sleep issues, and I really hope these products help to fix that. I will be using recommended doses, taken about 45mins before bedtime.

In; the ZMK alone has deeply impressed me. I had dreams on it for almost 3 weeks, whereas I nver dream. Needless to say it has become a staple of mine, I didn't realize there was such a difference between it and the ZMA.

...or should I say "Night 1?" ...
Well, I must say, my first night on this stack was incredible. I resembled that of a brick laying on a pillow the entire night...I don't think I moved at all. Since I've been taking Super Cuts 3, which is partially a diuretic, I've been having to get up at night to go to the bathroom, usually around 3-4am. Well, last night, I didn't wake up at all...and MAN did I have to go in the morning. - I probably drank about 40oz of water before bed.
I dosed both ZMK and Somnidren about 20-30mins before bed. I mixed the Somnidren in about 20oz of water with 10g of BCAAs. Surprisingly the taste was not bad at all...I was a little weary, but I didn't mind it one bit...there was also some Crystal Light mix in the water. I get the "Orange Sunrise" flavor because the acidity helps dissolve the BCAAs.
I can't quite note if I felt a calming or relaxing sensation, but I will make note of that tonight. I'll probably dose them closer to 60mins before bed just to see if there is any difference...It seems like everything is dosed just perfectly in the Somnidren. No nasty hangover from the Phenibut, and no rapid heart-beat or panic attacks from the GABA. Just right!
Woke up feeling perfectly refreshed and rested...Jumped out of bed as soon as the alarm went off.
Dose number two in...3hrs.
Thanks for joining me, everyone!

Does anyone know of a time-frame between when you can have calcium and these supplements? My last meal contains some cottage cheese and a nighttime shake, both of which contain calcium, and then I wait about 2.5hrs before I take Somnidren and ZMK...is that enough time, or do I need to cut the calcium?
03-02-2009, 10:09 AM
I got the same question... and cannon are you going to try to take the Somnidren any of the other ways?

I typically take zinc 1/2 to an 1hr before calcium-containing foods, rather than after them, just to ensure it's better absorption.
03-02-2009, 03:01 PM
Hey cannon how much coconut oil do you take? I usually take a tbl spoon or two a day, I was just wondering
03-02-2009, 03:07 PM
I agree with resolve, I take anything with zinc in about an hour before anything containing calcium. When I was just doing ZMA, I did the cottage cheese thing after about an hour of the ZMA.

Once again, completely knocked out last night. I dosed it the same way as before, but will be trying sublingual dosing sometime this week.
No dreams that I can remember, but I'm sure I had multiple ones. Slept all the way through to my alarm. I was a little groggy this morning, but I just bought some really comfy new sheets and comforter, so I think it was more of me just wanting to stay in bed rather than being tired.
I had a great workout this morning, and was extremely focused and energized throughout the session. Endurance was up, as was strength.

True & Current Story: I think I'm lame. I wanted to wean myself off of OTC sleep aids that make you groggy in the morning, so took a more herbal approach, 1000 mg L-Tryptophan and 9mg Melatonin. Although this stack knocks me out about as well as OTC sleep aids, I wake up feeling like I got 2 hours of sleep on my 3rd week of a hormonal at the peak of lethargy. I actually sleep better with the OTC crap. One of my prime fears is that this Somnidren might have that same effect on my quality of sleep. Again, I think I'm lame.

Hehe, I've heard nothing and read nothing but good reviews for this stack. I've used a similar stack in the past, just separate ingredients, in addition to Nocturnabol. The best sleep I can remember. I just had to make sure I got at least 6 hrs. sleep though. Seriously, I'd hit hay, and wake up in exactly the same position and same damn spot as when I crashed, no joke. Usually, I'm shadow boxing and kicking in my sleep, looks like a grenade went off on the bed. I enjoyed that stack, and really am looking forward to this one.

Volcom the Melatonin is probably what made you groggy. I much prefer the L-Dopa 5on/2off route. 5-HTP/Tryptophan and Valerian are also pretty useful.

I definitely dig my bulk 1-C. Never tried the L-dopa...Somnidren and ZMK is by far the best sleep stack I've ever used (I can honestly say that already)...as far as bodybuilding, we'll see what happens.

Another great night of rest.
It was cut a little short by my loud roommate, but whatever. I was sort of awake, but hardly at all, and then I heard a door slam, and my eyes popped open...that was around 6am, and I never fell back asleep...My alarm was set for 7am.
I picked up some Purple Wrath, so I'll be mixing my Somnidren with that tonight. I really could use a good rest tonight. I've got an exam tomorrow...I really haven't studied for it much. I'll have to wake up kind of early to cram for it. Eek!
I hit Quads/Delts today...Strength was down a bit, but not related to anything with Somnidren/ZMK. My lower back is sore from yesterday, so Squats suffered...BB Hacks were UP a good bit...Delt exercises were pretty solid...I guess I shouldn't say my strength was down too much, but I judge my Quad/Delt day purely on my squat strength.
