I have an odd ZMA question. From the other comments posted here, ZMA seems to provide universally great sleep to the rest of mankind; but not for me.
In fact, when I take ZMA, I can hardly sleep at all. It does make me feel mildly sleepy temporarily, but after that I have extremely fitful sleep in which I wake up 4-5 times during the night. I also have extremely vivid dreams (which isn’t unexpected.)
I would still like to take ZMA due to its other benefits, so I have a question – can I take it earlier in the day? Is the recommendation to take it before bed simply because it usually improves sleep quality, or does it have anything to do with efficacy or absorption?
