I started taking ZMA again 3 weeks ago and have had the same problem. I never thought about a possible connection though, I've used it in the past without problems. I have the Primaforce brand now. I used only BN's store brand in the past and never had a problem with it. But maybe this is where the problem is coming from. I'll have to go off it for a week or so and see what happens, if it goes away then I'll start the ZMA back up and see what happens then. You may want to try the same.

how much and what kind of protein supplements are you using?
sometimes drinking too many protein shakes
or even eating those protein candy bars can give you diarrhea
ive read on the back of some protein supplements something about too much can cause the product to act as a laxative
so check your protein supplement intake

Magnesium loosens up your intenstinal muscle along with skeletal muscle and it becomes a laxative. Out of all your supps this would deff be causeing the problem, but I wouldnt make a big deal about it. It should subside.

The very first bottle of Primaforce ZMA I took, which was over a year ago, I had zero problems with. I do cycle the ZMA on and off as well, I do not take it year round. I believe high doses of magnesium can cause some laxative type effects.

I got diarrhea after starting the EVO stack from Alri. I think your body is just not used to it. About 4 days later the diarrhea went away and didnt come back.

What does your fiber intake look like? Any recent changes?
We all know alot of fiber will give gas, but for some diarrhea also.

Dymatize Z-force > other ZMA. I have spoken!
I got the same thing form double-dosing Phosphagen HP post-workout. I cut back to one serving and the issue was resolved.
