How much total zinc in mg are you ingesting through these per day? Zinc is a mineral that is pretty easy to overdose on.

I know many guys that take ZMA & a good multi; if you train hard you use more Mg & Zn that most people. Should be OK.

The zinc doesn't bother me, but the extra magnesium from ZMA makes me run to the bathroom. Higher doses I think leads to the lack of absorption of other minerals like iron and copper.

weight training increase the body's demand for minerals. I believe there are several studies showing the vast majority of weight training individuals are deficient in zinc, and the RDA is based on sedentary people.
I wouldn't stress it.

the Mens one a day vitamin contains Vitamin A (14% as Beta-Carotene) 3500.0 IU per 1 pill. I took two today and was going to start taking two with ZMA in a week from now, is that a bad idea?

I am now taking 70mg of zinc daily between a men one a day's vitamin and ZMA, I was going to take two one-a-days but then I would be at 100mg of zinc a day and I don't want to chance going over the 'safe' zone, is this a good move? I dont know how much is border-line or not but I am 6'3 219 lbs taking 70 mg a day, is that too much?! Thanks

You could always drop the ZMA dosage to 2 pills a day (assuming its a 3 cap serving) if your worried about it....at least you'd save a buck or two.
