ZMA seems to improve the quality of my sleep on days when I do heavy exercise.
on 31 October 2014
Reason for taking ZMA: to replenish magnesium and zinc levels after my high-intensity training sessions.
Did it help me get to sleep faster: No
Did it improve my sleep quality: Yes
Were my dreams more vivid: Yes
Did it give me nightmares: No
Did I feel refreshed in the morning: Yes, but I didn't oversleep
I took ZMA right before bedtime, and after doing post-exercise yoga i.e., I was not tense when I went to bed.
Had I not done yoga, I may have had nightmares, which for me, often occur during the nights when I go to bed with muscular tension.
I do not take this supplement every night, so I've no idea whether the pharmacological effects of ZMA diminish with constant use. I am using ZMA only after high-intensity training sessions!
