    I gotta agree with OP. Zma seems to cause me to have more frequent and stronger boners as well. while i wouldn't say i'm horny and boner prone all the time i have noticed a difference.

    caveat: I do have a 75% mostly vegetarian diet...


    Is a vegeterian diet supposed to decrease one's libido? Because I'm 100% vegetarian and my sex drive is kind of insane and honestly a bit of a problem.

    It could also be the Gingko I've been taking but I doubt that. I do notice when I am around white ppl I get fewer boners. Why must they be so bovine and ugly-faced!?! [​IMG]

    Five years ago, briefly. I think it increased my lifts but honestly the strange tingling sensation and shortness of breath that came 10 minutes after taking it, even though it is considered a normal side effect, was too weird for me.

    Why do you ask?

    Just wondering. I started taking it recently to experiment w/ it a little bit and found it helps the quality of my sleep greatly.

    Speaking of sleep, ZMA has not worked a promised and my sleep quality has been destroyed. Not that I am tired during the day but starting at about 4am I am constantly in a state of half sleep and keep waking up. It is really quite annoying.

    I've actually read about that problem from many ZMA takers on several exercise related forums. Strange. Could you be waking up because your quality of sleep is so good you don't need to sleep anymore? I noticed that since taking magnesium, I often get up an hour or so earlier than I should, but once I shake off the grogginess I'm wide awake.

    I'm interested in this "side effect". I just hit 40, and my sex drive is down, I've been taking some trib, to not much result.

    What brand do you use, metro?

    Hey I've got a question. Is there any ingredient of ZMA, or anything about the combo, that could result in kidney stones? I ask because I got a real whopper last year, and it was after many months of taking ZMA (among other things, such as creatine). I have no idea what caused it, so I'm reluctant to take anything I was using last year, but I was a real fan of ZMA.

    Zinc magnesium and b6? I don't think so. I'd look at the creatine before zma.

    tahonng,

    I use the Vitamin Shoppe brand. I think I mention it somewhere else in this thread. Don't have it with me now but I think it is called MuscleTech or BodyTech or something.

    Elvis,

    I will definitely let other more knowledgeable posters answer your kidney stones question, but from hearsay it could be too much protein/creatine without enough water intake. Just something I heard a few times before.

    I started taking ZMA when I had a cold I couldn't shake. Don't know about erection quality or even shaking the cold, but it did have a noticeable effect on load size.

    Ran out, don't see any reason to get more right now.
