Calcium, Magnesium, Zinc Supplement

  1. Calcium, Magnesium, Zinc Supplement


    Correct me if I'm wrong, but I read somewhere that Calcium blocks the absorbtion of Zinc and Magnesium. I saw this mix at the vitamin section of the Commissary....is this a worthless combination?

    Also, is there any difference between taking Zinc and Magnesium together and taking a premixed ZMA?

    Would I even need additional Magnesium and Zinc than what I already get in a multivitamin?

    Thanks!


  2. Yes the calcium does hurt absorption of other vits, and minerals. I personally just buy some zinc, and some magnesium instead of buying ZMA. I get the same results, and save money.


  3. well crap, the brand I bough has all three in one pill, so looks like I need to find a new one, I didn't realize that Ca competed with the other two. What do you guys think about the type of Mg in the supp. I have always heard that magnesium apertate (something like that) was better then magnesium malate (??). Does it really make a difference?

    That sounds great. Zinc and Magnesium are cheap as dirt at the Commissary, so I'll scoop up a bunch of those.

    Does it help to take ZMA while on anabolics, or should I just wait for PCT?

    I've heard to wait til pct. while on your body uses the nutrients more efficiently so its getting plenty.

  7. During cutting would be an optimal time as well, as I am doing now.
