    had to find a reason to use it...

    anywho I stole this from one manufacturer's site

    Enhance strength, endurance, recovery, and growth with the original ZMA formula from SNAC System. ZMA is an advanced zinc/magnesium formulation designed to replace deficiencies caused from exercise and stress.

    ZMA is a scientifically designed mineral-support formula that can dramatically increase natural levels of anabolic hormones and improve athletic performance. In fact, if taken as recommended, ZMA can increase free testosterone by 30% while boosting IGF-1 levels significantly.

    Zinc and magnesium deficiencies are common in the general population and even more prevalent in athletes. To illustrate the point, in 1998, the mineral status of over 250 NFL players was tested. Over 70% of the players were either depleted or deficient in both zinc and magnesium. It sounds almost unbelievable because of all the attention we give to good nutrition, but most athletes and active people are deficient in zinc and magnesium which results in decreased hormone levels and diminished strength and power.


    The Cause of Zinc and Magnesium Deficiencies

    Why are we so deficient in zinc and magnesium? Probably the biggest reason is that rigorous exercise and stress result in significant mineral losses. And, to make matters worse, most ordinary types of zinc and magnesium are poorly absorbed ? it's very difficult to recover proper amounts without specific supplementation.


    The Solution

    ZMA is designed to combat these deficiencies. University studies have found that the zinc and magnesium contained in ZMA are absorbed far better than other forms. An independent ZMA study was recently conducted on competitive NCAA football players at Western Washington University. The results show that, in eight weeks, the ZMA group increased free and total testosterone levels by 30%, while the placebo group showed a decrease of 10%. The ZMA group also had a slight increase in IGF-1 levels compared to a 20% decrease in the placebo group. In addition to increasing anabolic-hormone levels, the ZMA group gained 2.5 times more strength and functional power over the placebo group.


    What to Expect

    So, if you're an athlete, or you're under a lot of stress, you probably need extra zinc and magnesium to perform at your best. And if you incorporate ZMA into your supplement program, odds are you'll attain the same kinds of increases in testosterone and GH production that many athletes have already experienced.

    I take ZMA every night right as i lie down to fall asleep. My dreams are 10x more vivid and i wake up in the morning feeling a lot more refreshed. For me it makes 6 hours of sleep feel more like 8. Cant go wrong with the price either.

    I've been through multiple bottles of Z-Force (Dymatize). It's like ZMA on steroids. I like it.

    That looks pretty solid. I generally go for just ZMA, but might give that a shot.

    I've been on Primaforce ZMA for about 1.5 weeks. I seem to be sleeping better, but I've been moving around a bunch lately so there's many things going into it. I take it usually 45 mins before bed. Might look into that Dymatize ZMA. Primaforce was the cheapest lol, $15 for 2months supply.
