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.

Wouldn't say it knocks me out but do have deep sleep. Very vivid dreams. Not sure about sports recovery But I'm also not a hardcore athlete or body builder.

Sleep well from these. But the magnesium is a sort that read is unhealthy.

It really had a kick in the beginning , with time the effect is wearing down but still very good product!

Has too much magnesium, and makes my stomach upset. I take max. 2 capsules per day. Where does the 2400mg ZMA come from? When you combine all the ingredients that this "ZMA" has (3 capsules), it's 495mg of ZMA total. I usually take one capsule when I go to bed, it helps me to get a restful sleep.

I didn't notice any big benefit from taking this. The B6 seems to actually cause me to have racing thoughts when I take it at bedtime. I would rather take Magnesium Malate and 30 mg of Zinc seperately at bedtime. I wake up feeling much better, calm and seems to balance my hormones (as a woman). So to me, the expense of this product wasn't worth it. I also prefer to take bee pollen for the B vitamins instead of taking B6 seperately, but for some people who don't want to take a lot of supplements they might find this to be beneficial.
