Wow Zinc

  1. Wow Zinc


    About one week ago I started taking 50mg of Zinc and 250mg of magnesium before bed. And it has made all the difference in the world. I have more energy, higher sex drive and my appetite is bigger and I just feel a lot better. I must be a person that is deficient in one of these two minerals and I would assume zinc since it is suppose to help test production. Anyone know any other ways to help raise natty test production.


  2. Did the zinc make you break out at all? I am kind of prone to breakouts and noticed on my back and forehead that blemishes appeared the day after starting zinc.

  3. No, but I notice my face is greasier.

  4. Yes, same here. Got a feeling I will X the zinc and perhaps just try a mag pill for the sleep.

    or you could just add B5. High dosing works wonders for those who are susceptible.

  6. it doesn't take much zinc

  7. I break out from ZMA. I've never tried zinc alone, but I think I'll try it out.

    B-5 did jack **** for me, tried it at 10-15g/day for about 2 months.

  8. Are the zits from more test?

    If you break out from ZMA I dont recommend wasting money on zinc. I tried Zinc alone 25mg,50mg,100mg doses per day and each one still caused breakouts. Pretty bad cystic ones on my back that are still kinda there 2 weeks later.

  10. if you break out from zince.. try a good dose of calcium.. it helps you sleep

  11. IMO, if you take a good dose of calcium with your zinc then don't even bother taking the zinc.

    I posted this about a month ago about making homemade ZMA.

    I use OptiZinc products because it contains the Zinc Monomethionine which is supposed to be the most bioavailable version of zinc (zinc aspartate would be my 2nd choice). I've used two OptiZinc products: 1 by Solary (has B6 included) and 1 by Source Naturals. I've found several brands of Magnesium without calcium: Twinlab, Now, and Nature Made.

    Cost Comparison:
    I've found Optimum Nutrition's ZMA for $18.99 for the 60 day supply which breaks down to $0.317 per day. The Source Natural's OptiZinc plus Twinlab Magnesium costs me $0.072 per day. The Solaray OptiZinc plus Now Magnesium costs me $0.103 per day. The "homebrew" combos are so cheap that I've been on one form or another for nearly a year straight.
