Has anybody tried ZMA? Or do you know anything about it? Just wondering what the greatness of it is. I've heard that taken about an hour before bedtime, it causes quite a deep, restorative sleep.

Scott-

If I remember correctly it is a zinc/magnesium aspartate supplement. I think there was a study showing depressed testosterone being caused by zinc/magnesium deficiency. If one is deficient it might be helpfull.
I think jarrow formulas makes a good product which is a fraction the price of the body-building oriented products.

The "greatness" of it is that it supposedly has superior absorption. One reason is that there is no calcium or calcium fillers. Calcium allegedly blocks absorption of other minerals.

The other "greatness" of ZMA is that it is brought to you by the same people who gave us Barry Bond's 73 home runs and Tim Montgomery's 10.78 second 100 meter dash. BALCO. :proud:

Well I ordered some from Biotest...it's only $9.99 for a month's supply, so I figure why not? I'll let you all know what my thoughts of it are.
