Gives you a nice deep dreamy sleep and aids morning glory.. strange though that it used to say take 3 capsules and now says take 1?
One of the few supplements i truly believe in buying as definitely works. You have good deep sleep taking ZMA and some of the most complex and crazy dreams ever. Definitely get a good rest taking these on training days. Should take a notepad to bed to write down some of the dreams because ive known nothing like itGoes Well With:a hot water bottle, pyjamas and teddy bear
I normally wake up feeling groggy & really moody in the mornings. Normally when my alarm goes off I hit the snooze button, however since I've started taking this every night with "Alpha Men Multivitamin" I drift off fairly quickly & I wake up energised & alert! Im a train driver & sometimes im up at 3 in the morning getting ready for work, this product really helps with being alert and being able to concentrate first thing in the morning. I'd highly recommend it to anyone who is in the gym & works shifts!!Goes Well With:Alpha Men Multivitamin
if you workout a lot, this product is in particular for you. I have used this product couple weeks and all cramps have gone. Also I sleep much better and at the morning I'm more energized. I recommend this to everyone who have a lot exercises.
I love these tablets, i received them as a free gift during an offer and have been purchasing them ever since. I generally have problems nodding off but with 2 of these im able to relax and get a good night sleep. In the morning i generally feel good, although sometimes i have felt even more lethargic but that could be due to anything. these pills are very easy to swallow. I feel like they have aided in recovery, also studies show this supplement help to keep test levels at a constant natural high in your body. Only issue i have is the morning wood, can be dangerous for loved ones in bed with you, bruised legs and what not.
Great stuff, gets me in a deep sleep quickly, get a good nights sleep and I feel I got a loud of energy in the morning and can do what I need to do without feeling tired after a training session and feeling stronger, getting some good results and don't ache as much.
I have had trouble sleeping well for years and tried many natural solutions but nothing worked consistently. After 5 days of taking the ZMA I started to sleep soundly every night and even went back to sleep after waking in the night. I am delighted with this product. Goes Well With:Water
This is the first time I tried ZMA after it being recommended by a friend and I was pretty impressed with how strong and immediate the results were. I have always had trouble getting to sleep quickly and this completely konked me out after I'd have three before going to sleep, it even got rid of the black bags I had under my eyes. It worked from the first time I took them until I'd run out! I also found this helps incredibly with recovery and after a difficult session you'd wake up the next morning ready to get up and feeling a lot less sore than without. I can't recommend this product enough to help with sleep and recovery, didn't notice any other effects. Only minor downside is that you take three big tablets a day and they run out quite quickly considering how expensive they are, but still worth it.
So I noticed I was sleeping quite badly lately, potentially due to my change of training or a trip to the other side of the world (jet lagged) and so on.. I was just tired from the morning, hard to get out of bed, just knackered.. and it wasn't getting better even after some extra rest days and long night (9/10houres) sleep. And then I noticed I was actually sleeping better when I wasn't at home (bed maybe, temp, routine, stress, mood?) I was trying to figure it out for ages.. Well In fact, after being affected by this for more than a month I noticed that was due to ZMA. I one day consciously skipped it (as I wasn't having an empty stomach) and noticed I slept better (even though I don't sleep that well when still food full!) So here goes, I am sure the product is good (it is definitely effective!) and can work well but for me, it is just messing with my sleeping pattern and clearly doesn't help my recovery (dreams are trippy though!) So if you start, don't go for the big box (like I did), try it out and see how it goes first.Goes Well With:Water
Seems to work ok so far. Reports of weird dreams are correct so it appears to increase REM sleep, given the ingredients I'm not sure how but it does. Much cheaper than other ZMA out there, also not sure why as the ingredient combination isn't patented , just the name ZMA. Intake three, half an hour before bed.
First time with zma impressed with the quality of my sleep, woke up with morning glory now on my second batch.Goes Well With:Ashwagandha, water
I found that these help me get a better night sleep. I take these every day and half an hour before I go to bed. It helps me get a fuller deeper sleep and helps with recoveryGoes Well With:Water
Zinc and Magnesium are a MUST intake for after heavy/though sessions as they help repair the body over night - recommended use is 3 tablets every evening preferably on an empty stomach and I take them together with 2 Alpha Men Multivitamins and an Omega 3 capsule. Now I am one who always had good night sleeps and wake alert - but I guess over this year these have helped to keep me doing so - I wake up feeling good and healthy every morning. What I do is take them for 2 nights after tough sessions - however if I have an easy session/ rest day and I see that there is no need for ZMAs today I skip them so that I would not allow my body to become dependent on them as much. Would recommend this Goes Well With:Anything
For someone who really had trouble getting to sleep these have been a god send!
I usually train late at night ,finishing about 10 so sometimes find it a struggle to sleep after I've been in beast mode! So thort id try these,felt groggy the first morning after using them,but not since, but I could tell id had a deep sleep, dreams seem more rememberable n sometimes pretty cool lol, and I often wake up with a morning wood like when I was a teenager despite bein 35.. :) Goes Well With:Water
These ZMA are great, if you take an hour before you sleep you will sleep very well. However you do sometimes feel bit battered when you wake up like you have had a hard gym session (even if you have had a rest day the day before) But after the full course which is usually a month you feel great. Goes Well With:Water
Been taking zma for around 2 weeks now and can tell a difference with the deepness in my sleep, find myself waking up less during the night giving a better quality of sleep which is essential to muscle growth, recovery and general day to day life. Zma contains vitamin b6 and zinc which not only help with sleep aid but are essentials for good skin and cleering spots something. Good product, good value, my protein deliver again.Goes Well With:My protein casein Good diet and consistent training Extra fluffy pillows.
I've been taking ZMA every night for about 3 weeks now and have definitely seen an increase in my muscle mass. I've been having really deep sleep and waking up feeling fresh and ready to go. However the only drawback in my opinion is the night terrors I've been having since I started taking them. But if you want gains, deep sleep and waking up feeling ready for the day I'm sure if you're a grown man/woman you'll be able to handle the nightmares ;-) I'll 100% order them again, thanks myprotein!Goes Well With:Water
