First it is Zinc. Second it shouldn't really be boosting test unless you are deficient. Third I take zinc anyways for other benefits.PES Representative

zink must be a new supplement, can't wait to hear about it
as mentioned zinc can be deficient in the body and it's why zma could be good
either way if your looking for a "boost" zma is not the best option in terms of boosting test....heres just a quick copy and paste
The study included 14 healthy male subjects. All of the subjects exercised regularly and had a sufficient dietary zinc intake of 11.9-23.2 mg daily. 2 weeks before beginning supplementation with ZMA, the subjects were asked to discontinue use of any zinc containing supplements. The subjects were split into two groups, and for 56 days all subjects took either the standard dose of ZMA or a placebo supplement at least 1 hour after their last meal before going to sleep at night.
No differences whatsoever in total testosterone, free testosterone, or indicators of testosterone changes were seen between the group consuming ZMA and the group consuming the placebo supplement. Based on the results of this study I would not expect significant gains in muscle or strength from ZMA. As far as improving sleep goes, while many users report improved sleep quality there is definitely better and more cost effective options available in this area.

With the above advice already given, one other little thing I may add is that you should keep the consumption of calcium away from the timing of your ZMA as calcium inhibits the absorption of zinc.

It's funny because I had a meeting about to get on TRT and the Pharmacy told me to "up" my Zinc..? It have some benefits and I sleep great on ZMA. But yeah, I already have bunch of stuff and just wanted to see if anybody knew what dose the pharmacy was talking about?!

pharmacists usually pretty on the ball (moreso than doctors, generically speaking)
good example here tho - that's not always the case
victor conte and his shams of long ago still retard the understanding of this mineral, in some circles, to this day
the importance of proper mineral balance cannot be overlooked, certainly..
to jump to the conclusion that "zinc boosts test output" as a flat adjunct is preposterous (and potentially toxic)
for those who swear by the "ZMA helps me sleep" theory, consider:
it is simply the magnesium in the mix that is likely responsible for this, as magnesium is a relaxant
try taking a product like Calm (straight magnesium) and see if you don't sleep just as well

I usually make sure I am eating a lot of almonds, cashews, and walnuts. Those are high in Zn.
However I notice a lot of people here are getting Zinc Gluconate. I used to just get Zinc Monomethionine and Aspartate. Which is better?
