What is ZMA?
ZMA is a combination of the minerals zinc and magnesium with vitamin B6.
It is used to increase the hormone testosterone and to promote better quality sleep.
Zinc is the "ingredient" with the greatest impact on the main goal of this supplement, the increase in testosterone.
It is effective at increasing testosterone levels in people with deficient levels in this mineral, however it will hardly have any influence on people within healthy levels.
Magnesium is the other mineral present in this form and is the second most present mineral in the human body.
Helps regulate muscle contractions and improves sleep quality.
As for vitamin B6, it participates in the sinthesis of the main neurotransmitters, helping to recover the CNS (Central Nervous System) from intense workouts.
ZMA should be taken before bed, preferably on an empty stomach.
It is important not to take with any source of calcium as this reduces the effectiveness of ZMA.
Key expected zma results:
- Increased testosterone (in case of zinc deficiency).
- Better sleep quality.
