It is just Zinc and Magnesium, so it isnt like you can overdose, if you feel like you can take it 2-3 times during the day where you dont have calcium within 2 hours before/after, then go for it. It is just really hard if you are takin a PWO shake, or just supplementing with protein shakes during the day b/c they all have at least 15-20% calcium, which decreases absorbtion of zinc. I personally am not a big believer in it, because I have been on it for about 2 weeks, and have felt nothing, dont sleep better, and am definently not more horny. I started a poll called ZMA: Does it work, if you want to check out what other people think though.

it definitely makes me more relaxed and drowsy.i too use prolabs zma and take 3 caps 1/2 hour before going to bed on an empty stomach.i think it helps me get a more restful sleep.
3 caps provides:-
10 mg of B6
450 mg of magnesium
30 mg of zinc.
ectomorpphian is right that it should not be consumed with calcium as it lowers absorption.

no, I supplement this especially when I need a little pick me up from a cold. Zinc is really really good for the immune system, and does not make you tired. It basically just helps your body enter a "deep sleep" but doesnt necessarily make you more tired.

ZMA does not increase test beyond normal levels and should just be used as more of a maintenance for adequate test levels.

I just use Zinc and Magnesium aspartate pills, it ran me about $ 10 for 300 servings. Bought them seperately 5.99 and 6.99

I just popped a few caps about a 1/2 hour ago, feel kind of sedated, very relaxed, it's cool. I'll be sleeping like a baby tonight, thats for sure.
