ZMX formula. 1 last meal and 2 before bed.

( 60 mg zinc ; 3 caps )

Does it contain copper? Zinc reduces copper. Low copper can theoretically provide loss of libido. Try adding low dose copper to your zinc supplementation.

ZMA before bed every night. No loss of anything. My libido is like it was at 16 yoa.

Zinc can lower E2. Might be something worth looking into.
