    I think ive been over supplementing zinc.. I couldnt figure out why i was getting heartburn and diahrrea but I think I narrowed it down to too much zinc :sad2:

    my multi has 30mg of zinc total split into 2 doses

    the other night I read on my super male plex bottle that there was 100mg of zinc in one serving so i looked up the side effects of dosing zinc too high and apparently im matching up with a bunch of the sides.. and i havent taken the super male for a couple of days now and im feeling real good with 0 of the sides so i have to assume it was this.. i think im going to cycle in 100mg of zinc once a week or once every two weeks instead of daily if im feeling depleted

    Does anybody take ZMA? I bought some zinc but it also has calcium, and I just read that zinc doesn't absorb properly if taken with calcium.

    The first time I took a ZMA supp I ended up puking all over my crotch and then my passenger seat while driving to work. Haven't taken it since.
