ZMA Useage Guidelines

Greetings, I have a few questions regarding the Biotest ZMA product. The label offers the following direcitons:

Recommended Use: Take 3 capsules a day for men, or 2 capsules a day for women, 30-60 minutes prior to bedtime. For best results, take on an empty stomach, or avoid taking with foods and supplements containing calcium.

I did some research ane the reason for recommending that the ZMA be taken without products contining calcium is because the calcium will inhibit the absorption of th ZMA into the bloodstream.

Now the question, I, as well as many of you eat a big bowl of cottege cheese before bedtime to give our stomachs something to do during the night. Any thoughts on what else to eat that does not contain calcium?

If you take the product on empty stomach, or nearly so, it will be absorbed quickly enough that you should be able to eat whatever you’d like to just before you go to bed. Give it 30 min or so and you’ll be just fine.

Just seconding what was said already.

I take my ZMA 45-60 minutes before bed on an empty stomach. Then 15 minutes before bed I eat my Cottage Cheese, Natural PB, Chocolate Grow, and Olive Oil followed by my fish oil caps. This seems to be working just fine for me.
