I'd like to try ZMA, primarily for the sleep benefits, but most recommended doseages are Vitamin B6: 11mg, Magnesium: 450mg, Zinc: 30mg.
The multi I'm currently taking (copy of GNC's Mega Men) has Vitamin B6: 30mg, Magnesium: 5mg, Zinc: 25mg per day - 2 tablets, one in the morning and one at night.
Is the key "sleeping" ingredient the magnesium? It seems that its the only thing lacking in my multi...tho with the multi, everything is spread out over a full day, not in one doseage before bedtime.
I'm currently using Lunesta and Diphenhydramine alternating as sleep aids now, with minimal success...just wake up after 8 hours feeling more tired than before I went to bed.
I've read lots of positives about ZMA so I'd love to give that a whirl...also what about GABA?
thanks for any input...
