Question ever taken zinc before going to bed?

supposedly results in very vivid dreams. I had a bottle laying around, so I'm gonna take one tonight to see what happens.

I have really ****ed up dreams anyway (http://forum.e46fanatics.com/showthr...ighlight=lucid), so we'll see what happens.

Hmm I've never heard that. Let us know if it works, I'd love to try it if it does. I know from experience that Tamiflu will give you some wild dreams. My doctor warned me and she was right.

Never heard of an effect on dreams, sounds interesting. It supposedly can lessen the effect of viruses like a cold though. Also, boosts immune system, metabolism, eyesight, energy, and more I'm sure. Don't over do it though, too much zinc blocks absorption of other vitamins, and basically has the reverse effect. I tried it once for little white specks in my fingernails a long time ago, which is supposedly a sign of deficiency.

Yes, as well as other results. Look up ZMA, or get zinc/magnesium pills at Walmart for like $6

Do not take zinc if you have HIV/AIDS. Zinc might shorten your life.

I'm pretty sure if someone has AIDS, the effect zinc has on their lifespan is a secondary concern.

I DREAM THE WILDEST SH*T

Sometimes almost seeming psychedelic, half the time i won't remember the dreams but when i do they simply are crazy and make no sense
That's what I ordered and it got here today. I worked out today so if it does help repair muscle faster, even better.

Have you been sleeping with the windows open? The same thing happened to both me and my friend because we started sleeping with our windows open once it cooled down, and I camped out last weekend and it happened again.

lol, yeap. that must be it.

I did have a weird dream about seeing an s2k and an rx7 racing on the highway... then some guy pulled up beside them, stuck his whole upper body out the window and stared yelling at them for being reckless. then a guy on a ninja 250 pulled up and I thought it was my brother... then a guy on a hyabusa sped past him. A cop followed the hyabusa before accidentally running him over.

crazy.... but not more vivid than my normal dreams.

I think most people that have HIV/AIDS are more concerned with the fact they have HIV/AIDS.
