    ZMA/FREETEST/ORANGE TRIAD ... too much zinc and magnesium?


    just curious if you think taking full doses daily of ZMA/FreeTest/ and Orange Triad would be over doing it on zinc and magnesium?

    What reason are you taking ZMA for?

    Its fine to take those together, but I dont really see a reason to buy ZMA unless you have some sort of deficiency. It doesnt do anything for test and there are better options for sleep aids

    honestly i just take it because I know zinc and magnesium are essential to test production and maybe taking it on an empty stomach at night leads to better absorption. I am not against stopping it if I am getting enough from FreeTest and Orange Triad.

    ZMA wont help you with test.

    Could you post the profile for Free Test? Im not sure of the ingredients

    I understand that ZMA isn't going to lead to some miraculous boost of Testosterone levels but it just gives your body some vitamins/minerals useful in producing a healthy amount of Test.

    Eh

    Go with Orange Triad, Activate X, Triazole/Erase

    You'll get really good results if you want some test support with your Orange Triad by adding those others in

    Many would recommend 3-6g DAA as well (altho I am not as much of a fan due to inconclusive safety research)

    Whatever combo you go with, keep an eye on your total intake of magnesium. Too high and you're signing up for diarrhea.

    All good advice.

    Personally I think ZMA is a good investment for the money.

    I never liked DAA, but that's just me. Some guys have excellent results with it.

    Good to go with the Orange TRIad though! That is 110% a good decision

    i wouldnt ever take 6g of DAA. i keep it at 3, and with Free Test, you shouldnt see any sides if you are prone to estro sides.
