ZMA is a specialised formula of Zinc, Magnesium and Vitamin B6 which is designed to help people improve muscle strength and power. ZMA may also help to support optimum sleep patterns
Regular bouts of high intensity exercise can deplete minerals zinc, magnesium and the micro nutrients vitamin B6, 12 and folic acid. These vitamins and minerals play a vital role in metabolism and maintaining optimum health. Deficiencies in these micro-nutrients may limit performance gains.
ZMA contains Zinc, Magnesium and vitamin B6. Zinc and magnesium are particularly important for muscle building. Zinc plays a role in hormone regulation and magnesium is essential for energy production and muscle contraction.
Deficiency in magnesium and zinc is not uncommon among athletes completing high intensity training. Replenishment of magnesium & zinc with ZMA will insure an adequate intake of essential micro nutrients required to restore testosterone levels and to help create an anabolic environment for muscle growth.
By ensuring optimum intakes of ZMA, you may be more likely to achieve your performance goals.
