Hey i’ve used both. Right now using elite pro. ZMA is a bit better for sleep (IMO), i’ve felt like EP has been a bit better for recovery (but i have no proof of this). The only thing ZMA has that EP doesn’t is vitamin B so i take my EP with a b75 complex and that helps me sleep pretty good. I only take the full dose on training days (4 a week?) and a half dose on non training days… but i am also a low bodyweight, i imagine for heavier people the full dose is fine. [/quote]
That’s a good point, Elitepro seems very good for recovery, moreso than ZMA… I’m guessing it’s the addition of the other minerals they included.[/quote]
Just ordered up a bottle. I’m probably going to take full doses on training days and half doses on recovery days.
Any other tips or suggestions when taking this? aside from before bed.[/quote]
they say to take it on an empty stomach, but they are fat soluble minerals so i usually take it with my omega 3 sup, and usually about 3000-5000 iu’s of vit D. (plus the B75 complex). I don’t know if this is the best method or not! (but in regards to the vitamin D i haven’t been sick since is started taking vit D in abundance, and its been almost 2 years!!!).
Read my above comment. You don’t need to take ELITEPRO Minerals on an empty stomach.[/quote]
If you don’t have to take it on an empty stomach, I assume you could take it anytime throughout the day, or even divided up into multiple doses?[/quote]
Magnesium will make you sleepy, so you probably don’t want to take it any other time than before bed.
