Calcium & ZMA?

I’ve recently started taking ZMA, and was wondering how long it takes for calcium to get out of your system for optimal zinc/magnesium absorption?

I usually try and have an hour window on either side of taking my ZMA. It’s funny though. Take a walk down the vitamin isle in the drug stores and you’ll see all the zinc and magnesium supps have calcium added. Plus the doses of zinc and magnesium don’t come close to what you get in ZMA supps either.

Ok, thanks for the reply. Yeah, the multivitamin that I’m taking has calcium as well, which is why I decided to start taking ZMA.

take your Calcium in the morning and or early afternoon and the ZMA at bet time…

That’s my routine…
