I’ve been taking this for about three weeks now, and let me just tell you, this stuff is amazing. I’m not even sure of all the sciency effects (maybe Q or Drew can fill us in on that), but what I do know is that I’ve never slept as well in my life as I do while taking this stuff.
It took a week or so to figure out the right time to take it (the directions are three pills, 30-60 minutes before bedtime). At first I was taking it about an hour before I went to bed, and it was actually disrupting my sleep. Now, for the past two weeks I’ve been taking it right before I go to sleep, and the effects are amazing – I sleep throughout the night and wake up feeling refreshed, not groggy at all. This never happened before getting on ZMA.
Now this may sound weird, and maybe it’s just me, but one “side effect,” if you will, is that I have some very vivid and whacked out dreams on this. Is anybody else taking this? If so, does this happen to them or is it just me? Not that it’s a bad thing…
