    Zinc equals better gains on cycle?

    The owner of a local supplement shop was preaching to me that you need to take in a lot of extra Zinc on cycle because it will produce a lot better gains. I have never heard anything like this in my life. Can anybody support this theory?

    Zinc is supposed to reduce water retention. As far as I know - aside from its natural effects - it does nothing else.

    Some people tout Zinc as an aromatase inhibitor, I've tried it before and it didn't do a thing. Google it.

    Zinc, well at least its apparently good at clearing up acne. Not sure how exactly it would improve your gains on cycle.

    I heard that ZMA helped get a better nights sleep as well. But, I couldnt see anything from it.

    Isn't zinc (as in ZMA) supposed to help your body produce testosterone ? If so, it wouldn't make a difference when your on cycle because your body doesn't produce any.

    Your body is shutdown when on cycle. It's reputed to help raise test levels on natty lifters. It certainly won't hurt you, but the benefit isn't worth the effort IMO.

    Thanks for the responses. I have heard of the ZMA deal as well but I was pretty sure the straight Zinc theory was bs. Man, this guy talks out of his ass a lot. It's also the same fellow who tried telling me that Nolvadex should be run through-out a deca /test/dbol cylce. Full of shit lol
