    ZMA worth it?

    Gotta order some protein and was wondering if ZMA is worth using? Also I use to use creatine a few years ago (tried n.o. explode then just plain mono) I never got much of an effect as far as weight gain from either one... can anyone recommend a good creatine that works?

    Do folks take this as a pre workout? Magnesium is a muscle relaxer, I see that counter productive if so...

    Is creatine even worth it? I have used monohydrate before with no results as far as weight gain/ performance.

    Never really looked into this. But it looks like Zinc, Magnesium and B6, right? What is the purpose? I get what they all do, but what's the hype/advertisement?

    Its all based on a study done by Victor Conte back in the Balco days that was later proved to be totally bunk. Like literally a totally bogus study. They claimed it was anabolic . Its super cheap but in my experince (yeah I tried it back then) it is totally useless.

    It will most definitely help you sleep if you take it before bed.
    For the price I think its an alright supplement,,,,totally over hyped
    but it does have some effect. Pretty cheap priced these days.

    Gotcha. Thanks man. I use all these ingredients separately for many reasons, but nothing to do with bodybuilding really.

    Men need zinc to have a healthy natural hormone balance.

    I had all these plus when I didnt take it I couldnt sleep. It didnt help the situation at all. This is around the time I realized less is more. I stopped taking more things to combat sides issues and just get to the problem itself.....just lower my dosages.
