What is ZMA?

It is a unique, powerful non-steroid formula that helps support healthy testosterone levels and maintain muscle strength and power. It contains highly bioavailable, zinc mono-L-methionine sulfate, zinc aspartate, magnesium aspartate and vitamin B6.

ZMA® is an anabolic support formula containing highly bioavailable, patented zinc mono-L-methionine sulfate (L-OptiZinc®), zinc aspartate, magnesium aspartate and vitamin B6. Randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled, published research shows that this ingredient supports healthy testosterone levels and maintains muscle strength and power. Testosterone may help support muscle function and physical performance. It is the ingredient of choice for sport performance products.

This ingredient optimizes the absorption and availability of zinc and magnesium to help support muscle strength and power. Clinical research shows that:

  • Supports healthy testosterone levels
  • Supports muscle strength and power

What do this mean? Essentially it helps enhance your current efforts to maintain healthy levels of testosterone and muscle strength.

 

How it Works

The ingredient helps replenish zinc and magnesium levels in the body. Zinc and magnesium are important parts of enzymatic reactions that may play a part in muscle function and exercise performance. These important minerals are involved in:

  • Supporting healthy anabolic hormone levels
  • Supporting normal muscle function, strength, endurance and exercise performance
  • Supplying antioxidant support

 

Active Ingredients

There are three important ingredients in ZMA®:

  1. Zinc mono-L-methionine sulfate
  2. Zinc aspartate
  3. Magnesium aspartate

 

How to Take It

It is suggested that you take it is on an empty stomach 30 to 60 minutes before bedtime. Since calcium interferes with the absorption of zinc and magnesium, it is suggested that it not be take with calcium-containing foods or supplements. If you are interested in supplementing with this, you should speak with your healthcare professional and refer to the manufacturer's suggested use printed on the label.

 

Tips For Healthy Testosterone Levels

When it comes to maintaining your ideal muscle mass, testosterone plays an important role. These tips for naturally maintaining healthy testosterone levels can be used in conjunction with ZMA® to find the optimal balance for your body.

 

Maintain a healthy weight

Excess weight causes hormonal imbalances that can impact your testosterone levels. Maintaining a healthy weight is important to finding the hormonal balance you need to retain your lean muscle mass.

 

Get enough sleep
Testosterone levels naturally dip on days where you are sleep-deprived. Strive for 7-8 hours of sleep per night to help keep your levels of testosterone at healthy levels. Your body also needs time to recover from your exercise routine (particularly if you include weight training) so sleep is especially important in building and maintaining your healthy muscle mass.

 

Get enough zinc

Zinc is another important element to the regulation of your testosterone levels. You should strive for 11-12 mg of zinc daily through foods such as oysters, red meat and poultry. Nuts, beans and other forms of seafood also contain high levels of zinc that are bioavailable.

 

Avoid excess sugar

Did you know that excess sugar can actually reduce your testosterone levels? Make sure to consume sugar only in moderation and maintain a healthy diet consisting of whole foods. Remember that foods such as white flour can act like sugar when processed by the body, so try to avoid processed foods like white breads and pastas.

 

Workout

This is a no-brainer, but is a key element to maintaining healthy testosterone levels. Your workouts are central to your fitness and the hormone levels in your body. Make sure you are incorporating some cardio into your weight training routine to help maintain your overall health.

With these tips and a daily ZMA® supplement, you should be well on your way to easily maintaining healthy testosterone levels to support your ideal muscle mass.

 

Where to buy

ZMA® is a nutritional ingredient available in a wide variety of dietary supplements. Most products can be found at your local health food store; otherwise you can ask for it by name and have it ordered for you.
