    Really? I can't see any reference to impairment of immunity at high dosages in this thread.

    What I wanted to know was the effect of lowering the dosages of zinc (as well as having only the one form of zinc in the formula), as this would have effects on testosterone and growth hormone production.

    When you eat the foods your body is made for (Paleo foods) in a framework that your body is made for (feast-fast, such as IF), it all works beautifully.

    The original SNAC (the people who hold the patent) formula for ZMA is as follows:

    ---
    Amount Per Serving (3 capsules):

    Zinc 30mg 200%
    (as monomethionine and aspartate)
    Magnesium 450mg 113%
    (as aspartate)
    Vitamin B6 10.5mg 525%
    as pyridoxine hydrochloride)
    ---

    I notice MP's ZMA x 90 Capsules - 500 mg Trademarked ZMA® product contains too much B6 at 15mg. Not sure what difference his makes?

    I see MP's own version of this contains the following:

    ---
    Zinc (as zinc l-monomethionine) 15 mg 100%
    Magnesium (as magnesium aspartate) 450 mg 112.5%
    Vitamin B6 (as pyrodoxine hydrochloride) 10.5 mg 525%
    Copper (as copper amino acid chelate) 1.5 mg *
    ---

    As you can see the B6 has been changed to the original amount, Zinc has been lowered and a small amount of copper added.

    The only reason I can possibly think for this to have happened is because some beleive that taking excessive amounts of zinc (in any form) can interfere with the bodys ability to use copper. So I think the copper was added to try prevent this. Although on the other hand many foods such as meats, grains, veggies etc are rich in copper. So if you eat a balanced diet you'll be ok regardless.

    What happens then if you consume too much copper? Well abdominal pain, cramps, nausea, diarrhea, vomiting, and liver damage are just some consequences. How much is too much then? Not sure

    Any reason why only the 90 capsules is available right now? Is it just shortage of tubs or is the 270 being discontinued? It was much better value..

    One of the biggest name brands' ZMA has almost identical amounts to MP's

    Zinc 15mg
    Magnesium 450mg
    Vitamin B6 10.5mg
    Copper 1.5mg
    Boron 1mg
