I’ve been a long term user of Amatryptaline which I was originally prescribed for pain but have now become dependent on to sleep (it’s a pain killer primarily but also a sedative.) Without taking 10mg of this at night it would take me 4-5 hours to go to sleep. I really wanted to get off it though and happened to get a bottle of ZMA as part of a weight loss kit with my protein. I use an app on my Apple Watch called AutoSleep. I wear the watch to bed and it tracks my heart rate and movement to establish several sleep parameters. These are, time asleep, quality of sleep, amount of deep sleep, and time it took to go to sleep. The following are average figures from my logs when I was taking amatriptaline: Results over 7 days: Sleep quality: 3-4.5 hours Deep sleep: 1.5-2.5 hours. Average heart rate: 10bpm lower than normal HR. Results over 7 days taking ZMA Sleep quality: 5-6.5 hours. Deep sleep: 2.5 to 3.5 hours. Average heart rate: 15bpm lower than normal HR. The results speak for themselves. This product works. It’s sstablished that ZMA can lead to nightmares with some people, and that seems to be reflected on the poor reviews, but I can say this was never the case for me.
I bought these to try, recommended by a friend to aid recovery. After only taking two tablets instead of the three stated, I suffered the most vivid nightmares I've ever experienced in my life. Won't be using again.
It would normally take me a good half hour to fall asleep but since I’ve been taking these I’ve fallen asleep a lot faster. The instructions say to take 3 a night but I started with 2 a night and they do the trick just fine
Works a treat as far as I can tell, I sleep like a baby anyway
Great product at the great price and I will definitely buy more
Seems to work ok so far. Reports of weird dreams are correct so it appears to increase REM sleep, given the ingredients I'm not sure how but it does. Much cheaper than other ZMA out there, also not sure why as the ingredient combination isn't patented , just the name ZMA. Intake three, half an hour before bed.
First time with zma impressed with the quality of my sleep, woke up with morning glory now on my second batch.Goes Well With:Ashwagandha, water
This is only my opinion but I am in love with these. I take two each evening and from someone who is the lightest sleeper in the world they are the bomb. I have just ordered a second bottle and my brother who weight lifts 7 days a week tried some( he took 3 tablets ). He said he had such a good nights sleep that he has ordered some for himself. I have found these are great to take especially at the moment during exam season. I weight train 7 days a week so I have to get up early to workout before college and these do not make me feel tired upon waking up. I would say I have had some interesting dreams whilst taking them but I would not call that a side effect as such if anything its a bonus. Overall I would highly recommend these to anyone and suggest that when you do try them take the highest dosage. 2 tablets for females and 3 for males.
this is honestly the first review I have ever wrote, but I feel the need to let people know these tablets do nothing, if anything they make quality of sleep worse due to the strange vivid dreams you have, do yourself a favour and buy some nytol from boots. Goes Well With:something that actually works
Seems okay so farGoes Well With:Empty stomach before bed
After useing for 3 weeks the main benefits Iv noticed is my sleeping pattern has improved drastically from Being awake all night to being soundo by midnight, I have a lot more energy in the mornings and my mucsle recovery seems to be a lot faster. Goes Well With:Glass of water
Amazing weight loss supplement as has given me the squits every time I've taken it! Not the intended purpose of course. Tablets are massive and unpleasant to swallow too. Just, nope. Does it help you sleep better? I didn't notice any difference but then I only took it for a few days because of the digestive issues. Goes Well With:Toilet
I have had trouble sleeping well for years and tried many natural solutions but nothing worked consistently. After 5 days of taking the ZMA I started to sleep soundly every night and even went back to sleep after waking in the night. I am delighted with this product. Goes Well With:Water
I found that these help me get a better night sleep. I take these every day and half an hour before I go to bed. It helps me get a fuller deeper sleep and helps with recoveryGoes Well With:Water
Zinc and Magnesium are a MUST intake for after heavy/though sessions as they help repair the body over night - recommended use is 3 tablets every evening preferably on an empty stomach and I take them together with 2 Alpha Men Multivitamins and an Omega 3 capsule. Now I am one who always had good night sleeps and wake alert - but I guess over this year these have helped to keep me doing so - I wake up feeling good and healthy every morning. What I do is take them for 2 nights after tough sessions - however if I have an easy session/ rest day and I see that there is no need for ZMAs today I skip them so that I would not allow my body to become dependent on them as much. Would recommend this Goes Well With:Anything
Good value for money. Not noticed any change but need magnesium and zinc in my diet so hope it's doing something! Capsules are large but easy to swallow just don't keep them in your mouth too long as they taste vile! All round good value
I've been taking this product for approx four days, They have helped make me fall asleep quickly and I defiantly wake up more energized which lasts throughout the day. These will defiantly become a monthly order as the effectiveness is fantastic. Thank you MyProtien Goes Well With:Water
I wouldn't say I've noticed a marked increase in ability in the gym but definitely gives you the best nights sleep you can get off the shelf!
I take these purely to ensure I get good quality sleep and sufficient rest to ensure my body recovers after each days gym session. I only take 2 before bed, but I take them literally just before bed (10mins before max) ... otherwise they seem to have the opposite effect and make my mind more active therefore keeping me awake. - go figure - but might just be me. I have been taking ZMA for a while, and they are a staple for me. sometimes I wake up a bit dazed and still sleepy... but most of the time I feel much better and raring to go. Love ZMA had many brands - this is right up there with any other. Goes Well With:any form of training...... and a nice comfy bed :)
For someone who really had trouble getting to sleep these have been a god send!
