We really need a nutritionist/biochemist to add to the discussion. Can our bodies absorb all these extra vitamins/minerals that we are taking in pill form? I understand some people have deficiencies , but 100 mg of zinc daily.. really? What ever happened to eating a solid diet.
And dont take zinc, ZMA , and or most pills on an empty stomach. Youll feel like sh*t.

I really don't see why people take all these ridiculous supplements in an attempt to "boost" their testosterone.
Clomid raises your test by 50% (by far the most powerful testosterone "booster") and most people feel no effect at all from it.
If you don't have low T, you will not feel any differences from supplementation unless you boost it to waaaaay supraphysiological range (i.e. cell tech).

n 2004, a study funded by a research grant from Cytodyne (another supplement producing company) with 42 resistance trained males showed that ZMA supplementation had no significant effects on total and free testosterone, IGF-1, growth hormone, cortisol, the ratio of cortisol to testosterone, or muscle and liver enzymes in response to training. No significant effects were observed in changes in strength, upper or lower body muscle endurance, or anaerobic sprint capacity
In another study done in 2006, a team of German scientists conducted a study on the effect of ZMA and testosterone levels in the body. The result showed an increase in zinc secretions in urine making it much darker like blood, but no effect on the level of testosterone in the body.

Did the test subjects have a zinc rich diet and then were given more zinc? If so, it would do nothing.
Supplements are here to SUPPLEMENT your diet when you're likely missing substances. I'm a meso type and don't need to eat much to grow and maintain muscle so there is NO WAY I'm getting all the nutrients my large frame needs. I take large amounts of fish oil because I get NO omega 3s on a daily basis, and I'm not eating zinc daily, and I get little iodine, and god knows what else, so I supp.
Basically, most non-ecto bodybuilders are in an anorexic state (not the crazy kind) and need vitamins to have optimal health. If you did a study on a person who eats a lot and has variety, then the results will be nothing.

as an apprentice shaman, i suggest eating Oysters, rich in Zinc & Copper, and protons... with little calories.
also from my knowledge, nothing helps with stretch marks, but foods rich in vitamin A & E should as much as it can be helped.++ Positive Crew ++
