Just picked up a 180 count of ZMA from 1FAST400.
Opinions / Past experience?
gives me awesome weird vivid dreams
i take 3 caps before bed.
i should get some just for the cool dreams
it's good shit
Vivid dreams but it fucked up my sleep so I don't take it anymore.
Took my first 2 capsules saturday night and had a crazy dream. I woke up with a boner and was ready to run a marathon. I like it.
What do you mean, as in couldnt fall asleep? waking up in the middle of the night?
great way to get extra zinc, helps me sleep, increases testosterone according to some sources
ive been sleeping like a baby with it.
Sometimes I would wake up an hour or two hours before usual, or sleep through the whole night but feel like I hardly slept at all.
But I think most of it is because I was already getting enough zinc from diet and multivitamins, so the zma was overkill.
no poz benefit really. good if on orals for the magnesium for back pump. other than that nothing
i've never heard of this zma. dumb question to ask what it is? with out looking it up?
U WANT ME TO HOLD UR GOD DAMN DICK FOR U TOO FAGOT
Zinc Magnesium A____???
A apparently is Vitamin B6..that makes sense.
it's been sooo long since a man of your.. stature, has asked me that.
yes, yes please would you?
And most say the boost in test is due to correcting the deficiency in zinc.
I get deeper sleep (been suffering from severe nasal congestion from environmental allergies) and even on Allegra-D, I was having trouble staying asleep. This stuff seems to help.
Also, the weird dreams are a plus.
you dont know that for sure
ZMA (Zinc monomethionine aspartate and Magnesium Aspartate)
A 1999 study was undertaken on NCAA Football players during an 8 week spring training program. The control group was told to cease taking any nutritional supplements. Those who took the ZMA tablets showed greater increases in muscle strength. This study was funded by SNAC Systems Inc. (the patent holders) and one of the study's authors (Victor Conte) has equity in this company.
In 2004, a study funded by a research grant from Cytodyne (another supplement producing company) with 42 resistance trained males showed that ZMA supplementation had no significant effects on total and free testosterone, IGF-1, growth hormone, cortisol, the ratio of cortisol to testosterone, or muscle and liver enzymes in response to training. No significant effects were observed in changes in strength, upper or lower body muscle endurance, or anaerobic sprint capacity .
In another study done in 2006, a team of German scientists conducted a study on the effect of ZMA and testosterone levels in the body. The result showed an increase in zinc secretions in urine, but no effect on the level of testosterone in the body.
