- Zinc, Magnesium & Vitamin B-6
- GMP Quality Assured
- A Dietary Supplement
ZMA is a combination of Zinc, Magnesium and Vitamin B-6 designed to maximize absorption and to promote recovery from exercise. Zinc plays a central role in the regulation of cellular growth and tissue repair, as well as the maintenance of a healthy immune system. Magnesium is essential for the maintenance of electrolyte balance, energy production and normal neuromuscular function. Because physical activity can increase the need for these two minerals, ZMA is the ideal supplement to aid in their replenishment.
As a dietary supplement, take 3 capsules daily (men) or 2 capsules daily (women), preferably on an empty stomach, 30 - 60 minutes before bedtime. For best results, avoid taking with dairy or other calcium-containing foods or supplements. Consider taking these other NOW products: D-Flame, Celadrin and TestoJack 100.
Gelatin (capsule), rice flour and magnesium stearate (vegetable source).

I'm amazed! This actually works.

I've suffered from lifelong insomnia with early morning wakenings. At this point I also have moderately severe arthritis which aggravates the insomnia, and leaves me with about a thimbleful of energy with which to greet another painful day. I was dubious whether this product could actually improve my sleep pattern, since it appears to be simply a combination of zinc and magnesium--and neither of these have ever helped my sleep in the past. The first night I didn't notice much. The 2nd night I did get up once briefly, but fell asleep right away again and slept like a log--didn't even hear a violent thunderstorm that my husband said shook the whole house. I woke up really feeling better, rested in a way I can't remember enjoying in living memory. I've used it now for about 2 weeks, and of course some nights are better than others (I have 11 cats, a dog, and 2 ferrets that can be quite a nuisance at night), but I must say I have had more energy and have enjoyed my sleep much more. I will keep using it.
My sleep is much better and I wake up refreshed

I bought this on a lark because I heard it can help with sleep quality. In my case, it absolutely has. I take just one capsule about an hour before I want to fall asleep, along with my regular multi-vitamin. I get in bed, read for a while, and at some point feel a deep sense of relaxation. One caveat: I tried taking the recommended three capsules and the experience was terrifying. Ever lick a 9-volt battery? My brain felt like that! I also had night paralysis and my wife had to shake me awake so I'd stop talking in my sleep. Backing off on the dose to 1/3 of recommended has given me exactly the effects I wanted with no unwanted side effects. For others thinking of trying ZMA, I'd recommend starting with the lower dose and building up to something higher. (For dosing reference, I'm about 78 kilos with a BMI of 23.)

I bought these because I lift weights and was told from several people that those that are into weightlifting should use ZMA, therefore I chose a quality brand that I trust. Do they work? I have no idea.

Slow shipping and very bad service

These gave me an upset stomach and didn't help me sleep at all - I actually slept worse because of the stomach problems. I chose to just buy a better chelated magnesium (glycinate) and a zinc supplement instead. From what I've read Mg Aspartate isn't a good option despite it's claims of high absorption.
