ZMA and calcium?

  1. ZMA and calcium?


    I would like to start taking ZMA before bed but the bottle says do not
    take with supplements or food with calcium. I also drink a shake of
    fat free milk and casein before bed which the milk has calcium. Does
    anyone know why the ZMA shouldn't be taken with calcium? What if I did anyway? Or should I just take one or the other? Thanks.

    The ideology is that your body will absorb the Calcium ahead of the Zinc and Magnesium. Personally, Ive never seen ZMA be hugely effective and think your better off getting your Zinc and Magnesium in at other times during the day...or you can take your shake an hour before you take your ZMA caps.
