Mineral Pro - Keeping Me Awake?


#1

Hey,

Bought some, as I wanted to add it in. However, last 3 nights (3/3 for taking it); it’s been keeping me awake - I mean like I downed a Spike Shooter awake.

I have taken loads of ZMA in the past; so it’s not the mag / zinc that is the issue…

Any notions? Should I just down the 7 caps in the morning?

Thanks.

ps UK folks; Biotest UK is having a sale - STOCK UP (already done so!)

Sorry, can’t say we’ve ever heard that before. Quite the opposite actually. Most people take <a href="http://www.t-nation.com/store/products/elitepro-minerals"target=“new”>Elitepro Minerals before bed to help with sleep.

Yup… back to ZMA for me. Stupid body! Still loving my Z12 though; that is a keeper for life :slight_smile:

I thought I remember hearing Poliquin saying that will happen if you’re VERY deficient in Magnesium, who knows maybe the other minerals as well…

Will try the morning for a month: and then re-test. Thanks for the tip though.

You don’t have to take it at night to reap magnesium-glycinate’s benefits for sleep. It’s not a time-dependent supplement. Just take 200-400mg of the stuff throughout the day and you should be fine.
