ZMA, Harder Falling Asleep & Less Hours But More Energy?

I thought i’d give them a go as they are quite cheap.Naturally i don’t have problems falling asleep and always get a good 7hrs or so. My main problem is i don’t ever really feel that well rested.

I’ve started just taking 2 capsules instead of the 3 recommended on the bottle. It seems like it’s harder to fall asleep for me meaning i get less hours, but i am more energized in the morning. This makes me wonder if it’s worth it or not as there’s negatives aswell as a positive.

I just wondered if anyone had any input. Maybe i could try taking them earlier in the evening?

I take ZMA every night about a half hour before I get in bed. For that half hour I do suduko puzzles to ease my mind. (Be sure to not eat anything with calcium at least two hours before taking the ZMA.) I take the full dose.

I get right at 7 hours of sleep every night and wake feeling pretty good.

Not specifically ZMA, but I when I started using ElitePro Minerals and melatonin, my sleep quantity didn’t improve but my sleep QUALITY increased dramatically. I’m still undersleeping, but the sleep I get is VERY restorative.

-Keep doing what your are doing and/or try three capsules

I have problem with falling asleep everytime I tried ZMA. I figured out it is from the B6, which is known to influence quite much the nervous system and I am sensitive. People even use it to promote “lucid dreaming”.
I switched to taking only Mag and Zinc separately before bed, no problems with falling asleep and very deep sleep.

Any thoughts on why it was discontinued? Not enough people buying it?

Nothing worked better than GHB the final couple weeks before a contest. But those days have long past. The partiers ruined that for us. I could buy it at the health food store. With GHB, if you laid still you were asleep in 10 minutes regardless of what you were reading or watching on TV.
