Will ZMA Make You Sleepy?
ZMA is not a sleep formula and should not make you drowsy. That said many people do use ZMA to help with sleep and relaxation as two of the minerals are known to promote calm and sleep, and Vitamin B6 is a precursor to melatonin. ZMA is more of a sports performance supplement than it is a sleep supplement.
