ZMA supplements have been helping athletes, bodybuilders, or workout enthusiasts for many years. Available in supplements stores, ZMA is a testosterone booster which may help to naturally support muscle strength and anabolic sports recovery.
ZMA (Zinc Monomethionine Aspartate and Magnesium Aspartate) is a simple combination of two minerals, zinc and magnesium, and vitamin B-6, designed to maximize absorption and promote recovery from exercise.
These three ingredients play an important role in the human body during physical activity. Zinc plays a central role in the regulation of cellular growth and tissue repair, as well as the maintenance of a healthy immune system. Magnesium is essential for the maintenance of electrolyte balance, energy production and normal neuromuscular function. Vitamin B6 is directly responsible for your metabolism, processing amino acids and several metabolic processes.
Exercise increases the need for zinc and magnesium and ZMA can improve absorption of these two critical minerals. Studies have shown that the aspartate form of this product creates an absorption rate significantly higher than we could achieve by taking regular zinc and magnesium supplements.
Physical activity can lead to the loss of vitamins and minerals making it particularly important for bodybuilding, as the blood sugar level rises and urination increases, increasing the loss of magnesium, zinc, vitamin B, folic acid, and many other nutrients. Although drinking water re-hydrates an athlete, fruit juice or sports drinks are needed to replenish water-soluble nutrients.
ZMA is the ideal supplement to aid in the replenishment of vitamins and minerals and should be taken on an empty stomach, two hours after eating your last meal. This product should not be taken with calcium, cheese, or milk, as calcium blocks the absorption of zinc.
