Ok, today i received my ZMA and Spike, can I still use my multi with ZMA ? Should I reduce the multi dosage? Thanks

Yes…take your multi’s in the morning/afternoon. Most multi’s have calcium which blocks the absorption of zinc/magnesium.

Taking your ZMA 45 or so prior to bedtime will insure you receive the benefits of ZMA, and help with deeper sleep.

Do not take it with milk or calcium products. If you plan on having a protein shake prior to bedtime, take your ZMA 45 minutes to 1 hour prior to your protein intake.

Hope this helps.

Provided that you take your multivitamin/mineral early in the day and use ZMA before bed, there shouldn’t be any issues.

Thanks guys, I will take my mutli with breakfast and ZMA 45 min. before bedtime!
