I can literally set a timer when I fall asleep after taking ZMA. Must be the magnesium in their that helps. Anyways great product for recovery. ON just rocks.

Its OK
Review by Mo (8 January 2013)
Not bad, but not the best ...
Helps with improving sleep though.

I prefer Supplements SA Testoblast (ZMA Tribulus).
Above Average
Review by Ray (29 November 2011)
This product really makes you sleep deeper, the only thing I found weird was the smell on the inside of the container. Other than that it's a good product. I'll keep using it!
Mixed Review
Review by Shogun (22 November 2011)
This product in theory can assist with recovery and strength but I felt more benefit from taking less tablets more spaced apart. Had digestion problems when taking the full dosage continually.

Would recommend taking few tablets to assess tolerance and then planning from there.
Review by Shogun (16 November 2011)
Price is decent for what you are getting.Initially started with 3 tablets and had digestion problems. Didn't notice too much in terms of the strength and recovery but I did feel better and felt as though I underwent a detox. Tablets are quite large but are capsules so no real taste. Effectiveness is mixed, 2 or 1 may be the way to go with this product.

Quality product
Review by Woz (6 October 2011)
Great ZMA from ON. Cheaper than other big brands but way better. makes you sleep like a baby too!
Review by David (22 September 2011)
Deep Sleep
Lowers Body fat %
Price is average compared to others

Although it puts you in a deep sleep, it also has a down side, it takes you over an hour to feel "normal" again...

Review by Shogun (15 August 2011)
This product is easy to digest and does not taste like anything. Have found it harder to wake up in the morning but feel more well rested. The zinc also benefits your skin.

In terms of recovery have not seen too much of a benefit. Price vs. quantity is very good. 60 Servings for about R380.

Foresee this product getting better over time.
Good for muscle recovery, but not convinced about deep sleep
Review by Srn (1 August 2011)
I've used this product for 1 month and found that the recovery effects were apparent after 1 week. My legs and chest especially benefited, as without the product the muscle soreness lasted ~4 days and since using it the soreness is drastically reduced after 2 days (did not change my legs/chest routines since using it, btw). I was a bit disappointed that I did experience the same 'deep sleep' as everyone else who has reviewed this product claim, but I can let that go since the reduced muscle soreness is what really matters.
Does what it says!
Review by B.B (10 May 2011)
This product helped me a lot with my recovery.Without this product I could only go to the gym 3-4 times a week with a good hard 1 - 1.5 hour workouts. Using this I could easily go to the gym 5 days a week without any stiffness or sore muscles.

The bonus with Optimum Nutrition ZMA is the sleep.You sleep much deeper and feel fresh the next morning with only a few hours of sleep behind you. Just take 3 tablets before you go to sleep.

I would definitely recommend this for serious weight lifters.

Overall I give it a 10/10
Review by Christopher  (30 March 2011)
Sleeping is a bit better, I guess, but the strength gains are definitely noticeable. It's cheap and lasts for a long time! ON never fails.
Great ON Product
Review by Nick (23 March 2011)
Essential product to add to anybody trying to build muscle and recover quickly.
Makes you sleep like a baby all night!
Great strength enhancer and overall training product. A definite MUST-HAVE in the supplement drawer for everybody
Love it
Review by Andre (15 March 2011)
After i used this product for the first time i will now always use ZMA. You can really feel it and it works. Sleeping got a new meaning after i started taking this.
Acne and nightmares
Review by J-Bay (19 November 2010)
I have read a lot of stories about ZMA causing acne. I suffer a lot from acne and in the first two weeks this product has given me a lot of "karbonkels", but it seems like the Zinc has just got rid of all the junk in my blood because the last two to three weeks I haven't had any acne problems especially on my face. If this is the norm I'm definitely gonna stick to this product (touch wood)

And yea...the dream thing is true...I forgot how it felt to dream...until I started using ZMA. I do have the odd nightmare now and again....some of them may win academy awards...if I can just remember them.
Stimulant Killer
Review by Kagiso (26 October 2010)
Ever had trouble sleeping because of your pre-workout? ZMA gives me the deepest sleep ever. No matter how many hours I sleep, I wake up feeling rested.

Add it to your stack for great results. Highly recommended. 10/10

@Guinea pig: Big lol at the crime, sorry bud
very good
Review by JacoV (8 September 2010)
I have some strength increases since using this product. I can feel my muscles is harder and I do sleep better at night. This gets 10/10 form me.
Knock out!
Review by Guinea pig (22 June 2010)
What puts me off this product is that they recommend taking this product on a relatively empty stomach. Unfortunately us gym rats need to eat the whole time and it leaves little place for NOT EATING. Anyways, I decided to abide by the rules and this thing knocked me out six love. I don't battle to sleep so the effects were a little more amplified than most users. Woke up the next morning to find my television stolen along with other electronics. I slept through the whole thing!

Buy a decent alarm system when purchasing this as you'll experience peaceful sleep!!
Review by Paul (5 June 2010)
Another one of the basic building blocks of muscle!
Good value for money and top notch quality
Definitely promotes Deep sleep (no dreams)
Review by Alheit (5 May 2010)
Been using it for two weeks now, nice deep sleep...and I can feel the difference in the gym!!It’s another quality product from optimum!!Love it
Great Product
Review by JGC (30 April 2010)
I felt a bit tired the first few mornings after I started using this product.

However, after using it for a few days I definitely woke up well rested. I also seem to fall asleep quicker at night which always helps.

Bit more expensive than some of the other products out there, but well worth it.
Review by pXius (27 October 2009)
sleep a lot better, i don't dream any more = better rest
great sleep
Review by robert (26 October 2008)

Deep sleep
Review by Kirsten (24 October 2008)
I've been hooked on zma for a year now....never had trouble sleeping but zma just makes me sleep really deep. Even though ON ZMA is more expensive, the quantity of capsules you need to take with the USN ZMA is a lot more so the bottle lasts less long. I also don't enjoy swallowing 4-5 capsules when I can get the same quantity of ingredients with 2 capsules from optimum nurition.
