Crazy dreams with ZMA.

Post 1 of 2:

OK–after briefly discussing this so-called phenomenon that vitamin water and different supplements/medications have on eliciting fantastical dreams, I thought I would share with you all some facts about ZMA (Zinc magnesium aspartate). It is a combination of zinc, magnesium, and vitamin B6 (pyridoxine).

As I mentioned in class, it helps boost the hormone, testosterone, which can have many benefits including increased strength, lean muscle mass, and energy levels. The magnesium helps aid in processes like the Kreb’s cycle and glycolysis, whereas the zinc is involved in a variety of hormonal actions as well as its involvement in more than 200 enzymatic reactions. So it makes sense why athletes, in particular, would experiment with it.

However what is it about this combination that causes these wild lucid dreams? Hmm… you’ll just have to sit tight and wait for post 2.

Until then check out some of these websites where ZMA users recount their freaky dreams…

Bodybuilding.com, AnabolicMinds.com, and JP Fitness Forums.

  1. Those are some pretty weird dreams. I noticed that a lot of them have content either related to the athletic thing or aggression (testosterone related?). Not much of making friends with a bunny rabbit and eating flowers along a pink stream of strawberry milk…. interesting.
