ZMA Capsule Burp

I just had a burp where a lot of white powder came out of my throat. I was scared shitless for a second until I realized I had just taken some ZMA and Vitamin C.

I’m kinda sick and I didn’t drink much water with the ZMA, which I think explains why it came back up.

Should I be worried?

no the same thing happened to me with BCAA caps, its a bad experience.

yup. it happens. hopefully lesson learned. i have found that it helps to take the pills with several large gulps of water then repeat a few minutes later as the capsules start to break down in my stomach.

Try this with curcumin, you’ll love it.

Yes. It has to be most unpleasant! I would gladly have the ZMA experience any day.

I have only experienced this with ZMA once. From that point forward I make sure to drink with plenty of water and it has not happened since. I take my curcumin with a meal and drink plenty of water so fortunately I have never burped up dry powder. But I still experience burning in my throat and nasal passage after taking curcumin.

I’ve had this happen with BCAA caps. Once I kept my mouth closed and the powder came out my nostrils. Unsettling taste for sure.

I try to avoid drinking water before bed, so I’ve experienced this several times before.

Same happened to me, at least the same doesn’t apply to fish oil.

Try sneezing the powder out of your nose…it fucking burn and there’s not much you can do about it for a good 20 minutes…
