Who should use ZMA®?
ZMA® is ideal for anyone looking to bulk or build lean muscle. Aside from this, zinc, magnesium and vitamin B6 play a number of vital functions in the body to support general health and wellbeing.
What does ZMA® do?
Zinc is an essential mineral and has a number of functions in body. Zinc contributes to protein synthesis and normal testosterone production, meaning it is vital for lean muscle and strength gains. It is a powerful antioxidant and supports immune and cognitive function. Zinc also contributes to normal fat metabolism, meaning it can support fat loss goals. Finally zinc helps to strengthen bones and can help prevent stress fractures caused by repeated strenuous exercise. Magnesium is also an essential mineral, that works synergistically with Zinc to support muscle function and strengthen bones. It assists with energy replenishment and can reduce fatigue to help speed recovery. Vitamin B6 improves the uptake of zinc and magnesium and works alongside them to support immune function, improve energy replenishment and reduce fatigue.
How should I use ZMA®?
Ideally ZMA® should not be taken at the same time calcium containing products such as milk or cottage cheese, as calcium can reduce the absorption of zinc in the stomach. For best results leave 30-60 minutes between consuming ZMA® and dairy products. As a food supplement take three capsules per day.
