    zma bottle smells like a dead rat

    So my optimum nutrition bottle of zma really smells like a dead mouse or something. So bad to the point were I actually dumped all the pills out just to make sure something wasn't in there. I have never noticed this before is this normal?!? And should I continue using them?

    I've never noticed a strong odor with ZMA....Valerian root smells REALLY bad.
    IMO, if there's any doubt, I'd trash it.
    There are 3 loves in my life: my wife, my English mastiffs, and my weightlifting....Man, my wife gets really pissed when I get the 3 confused...

    My ZMA powder from bulk nutrients has an off sort of smell to it, but I don't think its as bad as what your describing. The actual ingredients of ZMA should last a very long time but if it really smells that bad just trash it.

    If its as rancid as you say I would toss it. I just smelled my ZMA-5 and honestly it was kind of foul,,,like a smelly pumpkin.

    My ZMA smells a little like cabbage...It is nothing wrong with it actually. If anything has a strange smell and that smell was not there before then better throw away... Just to be sure.
