Potential ZMA blend
talking to a local compound phramacist, he came back with his option:
Magnesium citrate or glycinate
Instead of the standard:
Zinc(as Monomethionine AndAspartate)
Vitamin B6(as Pyridoxine HCL)
Any issues with ingredient changes?

Is magnesium citrate supposed to be better than magnesium oxide?

-ates are usually considered better than -ides.
I use zinc glycinate and magnesiun citrate.

So the form of B6, Zinc or Mag is fairly insignificant?

Well, while good absorption is deffinately...good, the whole point of ZMA is to fill zink and magnesium defishiocies(spelling?) This should be relatively easy with out super zink and super magnesium. From what I hear, the B is just to give you cool dreams. Keep in mind that I'm not a scientist, but I do have some experience.

OK - i might ask a handful of potential chemist & see what they recommend for availablity & get a bottom-end/cheap blend & top of the line blend quoted...

I use zinc glycinate instead of zinc picolinate because it's chelated. The only reason I use a chelated zinc is because zinc sometimes has absorption problems associated with other minerals, like calcium. This way, I don't have to worry about it so much. Otherwise, zinc picolinate is considered to be one of the better zincs to take.
I took a chelated magnesium glycinate for a while, but to get an effective dose it was kind of expensive, so I went back to taking magnesiun citrate.

I remember reading somewhere that chelating zink actually makes it less effective, but I couldn't tell you where.

I thought that magnesium was the one that had a problem with calcium?
